Engineer Badru Kiggundu has dismissed claims that he is dead.
Rumours have been making rounds on social media alleging that the former Electoral Commission chairman breathed his last on Sunday [June 9, 2019] evening.
Speaking to local media, Kiggundu said he was shocked that people are busy spreading fake news about him.
“I don’t know who is behind this but I am okay,” he said.
Kiggundu is a civil engineer, academic and consultant, who serves as the chairman of the presidential select committee responsible for the supervision of the successful completion of both Isimba Hydroelectric Power Station and Karuma Hydroelectric Power Station.
He was appointed to that position by President Yoweri Museveni in August 2016.
Immediately prior to his current position, he served as the chairman of the Electoral Commission, for 14 consecutive years, from 2002 until 2016
