Information reaching The Kampala Post from our field agents shows that yesterday morning, 25th December 2020, an attempt on the life of LC 5 Chairman of Lwengo was thwarted by his SFC bodyguards.
In the early hours of Christmas day as Godfrey Mutabazi was leaving his Lwengo home for Kampala, a suspected Rwandan assassin hiding in a banana plantation started firing at the LC 5 Chairman and his escorts.
His SFC escorts immediately took cover and returned fire. The assassin was forced to flee for his life. He left a bloody trail and must have been injured by bullets.
Godfrey Mutabazi has been targeted by Kigali for being a Museveni diehard and for mobilizing seriously amongst the Banyarwanda community in Lwengo for President Museveni.
Police are currently hunting for the assailant.
The incident comes after majority of incumbent district chairpersons across the country including Mr Mutabazi lost to their competitors in the just concluded National Resistance Movement (NRM) primaries.
In Lwengo , Mr Ibrahim Kitatta, the district NRM youth chairperson, defeated the district boss George Mutabazi with 31,688 votes(62.9 per cent) against the latter’s 18,656 votes( 37.1 per cent).
Mr Mutabazi had earlier indicated that he will not seek re-election and also fronted Mr William Matovu Saitoti , the district speaker as his possible successor, but Mr Mutabazi later made changed his mind.
