A machete man on Tuesday morning broke into Mukono Municipality MP, Betty Nambooze’s house at Nakabago cell, Ntawo ward, Central Division, Mukono Municipality.
The incident happened at around 6am when the assailant entered her bedroom.
ASP Luke Owoyesigyire, the deputy Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, said the bedroom was open at the time because she was planning to go for a meeting at Parliament.
It is alleged that the Honourable Member of Parliament made an alarm and her husband Bakireke came to her rescue by grabbing the man pushing him outside.
The suspect later escaped and jumped onto a motorcycle waiting for him outside as witnessed by some neighbours.
Police recovered two brand new machetes in a sack at a small garden of tomatoes in the premises.
Other items of material evidence have also been recovered.
Nambooze told journalists that the assailant entered her bedroom holding an object and threatening to kill her.
“The man told me to face the wall and say my last prayers because he was to kill me,” she said.
She said she made an alarm that attracted her husband, Henry Bakireke who was in the sitting room praying.
“My husband rushed and rescued me by grabbing the man and pushing him outside. Unfortunately, he escaped,” Nambooze said.
