This news website was the first to reveal Karuhanga’s life threats after we intercepted information that he was seeking police guards.

He had earlier tabled documents in Parliament accusing Sam Kutesa, Amama Mbabazi and Hilary Onek of accepting bribes from an oil company.

The three are powerful ministers. Since then, life has never been the same again.

He has a few hours ago confirmed our reports saying so far three informants warned that his life is in danger.

Karuhanga says other MPs who have boldly asked the ministers to step down are in danger.

“They want to harm or exterminate us for exposing the ministers. We shall know whether go to police or not,” he said.

The western youth MP says cars have been trailing him since the stormy oil debate.

“I have shared this information with my colleagues. If they are threatened as well, we shall come up with a common position,” said Karuhanga.

“We are going to protest against the abuse of oil resources by our ministers and government’s failure to devise ways of curbing the rising cost of living. We shall then organise a rally on Saturday,” Mathius Mpuuga told press yesterday.

By last night, the opposition youth wing leaders were circulating leaflets in different areas especially Kampala city, calling upon Ugandans to prepare for a week of walk to work demos starting Monday.

They were as well taking advantage of social networking websites such as twitter and face book to mobilise the country for another round of riots.

Walk-to-work riots a few months ago left nearly 20 dead, economy in shambles, property worth millions of shillings destroyed and Tourism sector in graveyard.

Security minister Muruli Mukasa told press then that opposition intended to use the protests as aground for a mass uprising against government.

During today’s meeting, according to sources, police chiefs will coordinate with other heads of security organs to devise methods of intelligence gathering during the weekend ahead of Monday’s riots.

They will then meet again on Sunday afternoon to work out ways of controlling riots amidst soaring terror threats.

Informers say Muruli Mukasa, IGP Maj. Gen. Kale Kayihura, Coordinator of Intelligence Organs Gen. David Tinyefuza, Chief of Defence Forces Gen. Aronda Nyakairima and his Deputy Gen. Ivan Koreta, Anti-terror chief Abbas Byakagaba and Special Forces Commander Col. Muhoozi Keinerugaba will attend.

“Since Col. Muzoora’s controversial death, government has been very sensitive about political rallies and doubled intelligence gathering efforts to avert possible plans to change regime using violence.”

Youth leader Francis Mwijukye says the protests will go on as planned despite threats from Kampala police region Commander Andrew Kaweesi that he would “deal with protesters as they come.”
