Arua Municipality MP Ibrahim Abiriga is dead.
Government Chief-Whip Ruth Nankabirwa has confirmed to TND News Friday evening that Col. Abiriga was shot at along with his bodyguard at Energo near his home in Kawanda along Bombo road.
The MP for Arua Municipality who is popularly known as “yellow man”, a self-proclaimed diehard supporter of President Yoweri Museveni has been shot dead together with his bodyguard.
Unknown gunmen reportedly riding on motorcycles in a style similar to the way former police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi was killed last year gunned down Abiriga.
Abiriga was famous for his love for the ruling party NRM. He will also be remembered for urinating on the wall of Finance Ministry, defending himself to Ugandans that he was badly off and had no other option.
