MP Sylvia Rwabogo: My Stalker Wanted to Lure Me With Love and Kill Me

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.
