Grenades Thrown at MPs Bobi Wine, Allan Ssewanyana Residences

Hand grenades were on Tuesday morning thrown at the residences of Kyadondo East MP Kyagulanyi Robert aka Bobi Wine and Makindye East MP Allan Ssewanyana.

Both MPs revealed the attack on their residences via Facebook, indicating that the explosives destroyed property but no one was hurt.

It will be remembered two explosives were thrown at Rubaga North MP Moses Kasibante house an hour after police returned him home after Wednesday’s detention over the age limit scuffle at Parliament.

Kyadondo East MP Bobi Wine revealed that similar blasts happened outside his house 3 days ago. He also revealed that he has been receiving death threats over opposing the lifting of Presidential Age Limit.

By publication time, Police had arrived at Bobi Wine’s home in Magere to investigate the source of the explosives.

Read Bobi Wine’s full post:

“GRENADES have for the second time in two days been thrown at my house and exploded. Property damaged and no one hurt! But what kind of country are we now living in?

I had decided to ignore the blasts and these threats, but it seems they are now getting real. 
Let me announce to the whole world that these past days I have been receiving death threats on an almost daily basis.

I have also been advised by some friends who know more than I know that I should be very careful what I eat or drink, how I drive and from where, whom I meet, even who touches me while I go to Parliament. Apparently something could be done to me during the kind of scuffle that happened when state agents invaded the Parliamentary chamber! 

Reason? Opposing the removal of age limits in the Constitution! Anonymous calls targeting not only me but my family as well. I have been told that ‘if I don’t leave that thing a lone, I will just be terminated or disabled.’ 

These are cowardly acts which must be condemned by all people of good conscience. We are not involved in war. We are just citizens who are interested in a good country for ourselves and the generations to come. WE SHALL NOT BE INTIMIDATED. Let them know that NOTHING can stop an idea whose time has come. If you kill one me, perhaps a thousand more will rise up. The world is watching!”

“People have thrown a grenade/explosive at my home 1:20am……need some rescue…I’m told the same has happened to Hon Kyagulanyi’s home.”
