Kabarole Woman MP Sylvia Rwabwogo has today July 8, revealed why she dragged YMCA’s Brian Isiko (25) to court.
Ms Rwabogo said in a statement on social media “This boy [Brian Isiko] was being used by some selfish individuals in a mission to lure me with love and kill me.”
“What most of you regard as mere love messages should know that this was not just love messages,” she said adding that “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.”
Mr Isiko was on Thursday sentenced to two years in jail after he admitted before court that he fell for Ms Rwabwogo thereby sending her love messages intruding in her privacy.
Ms Rwabwogo told court that she started getting these love messages and calls from a stranger a head of the controversial Constitution Amendment Bill that was passed in December to remove presidential age limits which made her think that someone wanted to hurt her.
In a statement Ms Rwabogo said that “I endured fear and suffering due to those who sent Brian to trap and kill me.”
“We cannot go on dying like animals.”
Buganda Road Magistrate Ms Gladys Kamasanyu on Thursday June 5, jailed Mr Isiko on the count of cyber harassment and to nine-months for offensive communication – both sentences to run concurrently.
Ms Rwabogo further explained that she did not jail Mr Isiko for expressing his feelings to her but for fear of her life.
“[Cerinah] Nebanda [for Butaleja District Woman MP] 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.”
She added that “If it was for love, I have had many even those younger than Brian [Isiko] and much older, but this was none like other with intentions to harm me,” she explained calling upon Ugandans to be vigilant at all times.”
“Vigilance is a key,” she said.
