“I have lost a great fighter,” said Nambooze.

The controversial lawmaker said the deceased could have been victim of her quiet anti-corruption crusade.

“It is amazing though how a young woman could accomplish so much in the very short time that marked her life,” said Nambooze.

“Having been elected Councillor at her first attempt, she went on serve quite impressively, leaving an enviable record that saw her unearth rot that has eluded the eye of Council in the last terms. In her very last days, she turned up flawless reports with a high sense of urgency like she was indeed set to pack her bags,” she added.

“Her (Ndagire) investigation had so far revealed a loss of close to Shs 1 billion in undeclared revenue by Mukono Central Division, much to the chagrin of those defrauding the Division,” said Nambooze.

Police are expected to make an official statement today in regard to the shocking death.

Officials told ChimpReports on Monday that a deep investigation had been opened in Ndagire’s death.

Nambooze said it was “quite disturbing” that her death has not been resolved.

“Despite having died mysteriously, police has taken a passive stance even when all clues would render the matter to be treated as a murder. The Resident District Commissioner has gone to great lengths to try and portray the death as having been caused by an electric shock much to public suspicion since the postmortem report clearly indicates that the cause of death is not yet established pending a toxicological analysis,” said the MP.

Authorities suspect the deceased was electrocuted as her motionless body was found near an electric cable.

However, Nambooze insists Ndagire’s arm was fractured.


The MP further alleged that unknown people tried to bribe the father of the deceased to exclude the Democratic Party from the funeral proceedings.

“He turned them down squarely telling them he knew the entitlements of her daughter from Council as a Councillor.  He stood his ground and on failing in this, police deployed heavily at the burial with the RDC giving instructions which fortunately were disregarded by both family and the mourners,” said Nambooze

“We just lost our gun and it is our prayer that her death is resolved and that her pursuit of good governance is carried on. Ndagire Regina, you will not die in vain. We have all the evidence that you fell victim because your murderers failed to reach me who was their primary target.”
