Minister for Kampala has expressed concern after receiving death threats from unknown persons.

Beti Kamya on Thursday told reporters in Uganda's capital, Kampala, that she had seen a hit list featuring her name.

She is bothered by the hit list and has taken necessary precautionary measures - including returning home early.

“I wish they could state the reason for wanting me dead. If there is something I did and is displeasing to them, they should make it known and if possible I can apologise," Nile Post quotes the minister.

Police authorities have urged the minister to make formal complaints to have her security beefed up.
