The head of Go Forward security and former External Security Organisation [ESO] says there are plans to assassinate Amama Mbabazi.

David Pulkol shared his fears in an interview with NBS TV recently.

Pulkol said the intelligence they have indicates that Mbabazi will be hurt either in an acid attack or poisoning or be shot dead by snipers.

Over the weekend, NRM supporters attacked Mbabazi’s convoy in Ntungamo town and hurled stones at his car.

According to Go Forward, the incident relates to a plot by the political enemies of the former Prime Minister who is challenging President Yoweri Museveni.

Speaking on NBS TV on Wednesday, Mbabazi called on his supporters to reject intimidation if they want to see positive change.

“Intimidation doesn’t work. It is meaningless. I have support. I don’t have to demonstrate it,” he said.

In a statement today, he said NRM members have been provoking him wherever he goes for rallies and police which is supposed to keep law and order looked on hopelessly as Museveni supporters attacked his convoy in Ntungamo.

According to Pulkol, the assassination plot will see acid poured on Amama while addressing supporters at a rally he never specified.

“We have heard intelligence of people who want to snipe and shoot Amama dead,” he said.

Pulkol said other threats include compromising his food by poisoning him, compromising his car and his seat on an event.

“This is because the momentum of change has risen.”

According to Mbabazi’s lawyer, Fred Muwema, the former NRM Secretary General mentioned to his camp before travelling to UK recently that his life was in danger.

In UK, Mbabazi was going to check on his wife, Jacqueline Mbabazi, who had been hospitalised since October.

Reports also made rounds that she had been poisoned but Mbabazi refused to confirm or dismiss them.

Earlier, Muwema had told press that Mbabazi was to be arrested and charged with money laundering and possible murder but government dismissed the report.

Now Pulkol says Mbabazi’s security is threatened accusing NRM of sponsoring a hate campaign against him.

He cited the procession in Gulu town that carried a coffin to bury Mbabazi alive and the many incidents by NRM supporters disrupting Mbabazi’s rallies.

Mbabazi’s lawyers wrote to the electoral commission over the matter threatening to drag officials to the International Criminal Court if nothing was done.

Muwema says they will pursue the letter to ICC if their candidate is harmed.
