Kassanda south MP Simeo Nsubuga has threaten to kill a journalist for reportedly calling his election mobilisers and constituents to join his rival after losing National Resistance Movement (NRM) primaries.
According to a recorded voice call, Simeo who started with a phone conversation with Arabic greeting ‘As-salamu alaykum’ loosely meaning ‘Peace be upon you’ told off a journalist identified as Sonko to stop contacting his electoral coordinators and mobilizers despite losing party primaries.
The former spokesperson of police said Sonko is trying to lure his team to support his counterparts in the just concluded intra party election.
“I get reports from my constituency that you call my coordinators, mobilisers and supporters that my rival, Michael Muhumuza wants them. My brother, you have a family with young children, if you want to live, get out of my issues, It is me who has told you, it is not that I sent someone. I you want to see your children growing, leave me,” he said in a recorded telephone conversation.
He added; “Don’t say that I didn’t tell you, this is life and death, I have told you in broad day light.”
Simeo who lost to Michael Muhumuza, announced that he will run on independent ticket. Nsubuga polled 11,011 votes to lose the seat to Muhumuza who garnered 11,173 votes in the party primaries which were held in September.
