Kabarole Woman MP Sylvia Rwabwogo has defended herself for suing her stalker Brian Isiko.
Isiko, 25, who had been calling and sending love messages to the 41-year-old legislator, was last week sentenced to two years in jail by the Buganda Road magistrates court.
Ugandans on Social Media would come out and attack Ms Rwabogo for “over-reacting”, arguing that she cannot take to court every man that makes a move on her.
However, the MP in a post via Facebook maintained that she does not regret taking Isiko to the authorities because he “was being used by some selfish individuals in a mission to lure me with love and kill me”.

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Supporters,
Before you go on judging me and scolding me, I want to let you know that there’s more than meets the eye in all this saga that has turned out to be a national issue.
What most of you regard as mere love messages should know that this was not just love messages. This boy was being used by some selfish individuals in a mission to lure me with love and kill me.
I endured fear and suffering due to those who sent Brian to trap and kill me. Nebanda was killed in such a way. I didn’t have to wait to be killed, as a precautionary measure I had to seek the solace of authorities to protect myself, my family and constituents from horror.
If it was for love, I have had many even those younger than Brian and much older, but this was none like other with intentions to harm me.
Let’s see how the authorities handle the situation. I call upon fellow Ugandans to be vigilant at all times, we cannot go on dying like animals. Vigilance is key.
For God and my Country.
