Ugandan police are investigating the death of a top political activist Barbara Allimadi.

Allimadi, who is also the International Affairs Secretary of the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) was found dead at her home in Kiwatule.

The death of the 48-year old who lived alone was reported to police by residents, according to police officials.

Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson Patrick Onyango said on Tuesday that “It is alleged that Harry Wakibra reported the discovery of a lifeless body of one Allimadi Ann Barbra, aged 48 years, Coordinator of Alliance for National Transformation, Foreign Envoy and a resident of Kiwatule.

The scene was visited by a team of detectives who examined the area and recorded statements from the witnesses around.”

Mr Onyango also said that “The findings indicates that the deceased was found lying straight on her stomach with straight legs. The lying body shows she could have been in pain during her last breathe. There is no sign of struggle or injuries on the body.”

Allimadi was a popular activist in 2012 for leading a semi -nude protest that received significant publicity after police assaulted a fellow political activist Ingrid Turinawe.

Fellow political activists have been paying tribute to Allimadi following her death.
