Police in Masindi are holding a man who attempted to assassinate the Resident District Commissioner – RDC Masindi in her office.
The suspect identified as Joseph Serugo in his late 40’s yesterday evening came seeking for Nalongo Rose Kirabira the RDC claiming he was a local investor from Kampala.
According to Kenneth Tumusiime an eyewitness, Serugo removed a knife from an envelope and hid it in waist thus he had to alert the RDC’s secretary on matter.
Rose Kirabira the RDC – Masindi told www.mknewslink.com reporter that when her secretary was alerted that Serugo had a knife, she ran out and alerted security who checked him and found his knife which he claimed was for personal security.
According to Ms. Kirabira, if Serugo was given an opportunity to enter in her office, he could have easily removed his knife and stabbed her.
“Maybe they are targeting all the Resident District Commissioners in the country, the good news is that God has saved me, but I’m asking the government to handle the suspect with iron hand to get others,” Kirabira added.
