The MP, who heads the Committee on Presidential Affairs, has lately been instrumental in the debate against encroachment in wetlands and illegal structures in the city.

He has publicly supported KCCA Director Jennifer Musisi to demolish business structures in the city including Centenary Park under the management of Sarah Kizito, Nyakaana’s wife.

Just one week ago, the NRM MP told journalists at Parliament that he had received anonymous telephone calls from people saying they “knew where all his properties were located.”

“I have just gotten the news that my house is on fire. I am shocked. All my children are at school,” he said.

Tinkasiimire, however, said he had spent “some good time” without stepping at the Mukono residence because “I have so many houses.”

“Yes, it’s true we are investigating what caused the fire. But empty petrol containers were found outside the legislator’s home,” Nabakooba told our reporter Royal Kalangi on Tuesday morning.

The fire gutted the house at around 2:00am, injuring his wife Agnes Tinkasiimire and his unidentified son.
