Kanungu District Woman Member of Parliament Elizabeth Karungi says media reports claiming she poisoned a girl who is having sex with her husband are not true.
Karungi was sued for allegedly masterminding the poisoning of a female Parliamentary staff while targeting a girl who is having an affair with her husband.
Donna Kamuli, the victim, filed the civil suit against the MP in the High Court in Kampala saying MP Karungi later apologised to her that her target was a different woman called Sophie Nassuuna, a student of Makerere University.
According to the file, Karungi’s husband would pick Nassuuna from Muheki Hostel in Kikoni behind Makerere University to have steamy romps in hotels.
Kamuli and Nassuuna are both light-skinned and worked at Parliament.
Speaking on live radio unawares, Karungi called her target a “malaya” [harlot], “stupid” and “useless” receptionist.
“She is just a receptionist here (Parliament). A very useless girl,” Kalungi told a radio presenter.
According to the MP, Kamuli, who is now seeking treatment abroad, was seeking an opportunity for money.
“That is why she went to the media and then the lawyer to draft (for her the case) expecting to get a call from me. I said I will not give you anything,” Karungi narrated.
“Can you imagine? I have my co-wife? I would have killed that one. Now this Malaya, I look for what in her really?”
She told the presenter that even a medical report from Case Clinic where Kamuli was first admitted revealed that she was not poisoned.
The results from the superior and authoritative Government Analytical Laboratory established that Kamuli’s urine had deltamethrin, saliva contained tinidazole and cyprodinil in her blood.
The chemicals are said to be poisonous to humans, highly corrosive and fatal if ingested.
Kamuli a receptionist at parliament, represented by Rwakafuzi & Co Advocates, says she was poisoned on Saturday 1st September 2018 between 3:00 and 4:00pm at Café Pap on Parliamentary Avenue Kampala.
