He was a also a key supporter of a reform bill adopted last December, to scrap the presidential age limit of 75 years.

The move was seen as a bid to pave way for Museveni who has been president since 1986 and currently 73, to seek a sixth term in power.

Museveni responded to the news of Abiriga’s murder on Twitter, saying: “I have received news about the senseless killing of Arua Municipality MP, Hon Ibrahim Abiriga, and his bodyguard on the city’s outskirts.
