VETERAN politician, Maria Matembe has said if God had stopped fighting for her, she would be dead by now.

Matembe who is known as an activist, a critic of ruling NRM government headed by President Yoweri Museveni, is further known for calling spade not a big spoon.

A woman and human right activist, Matembe, played critical roles last year when there were series of murders in Kampala Metropolitan Areas, an act that saw more than 10 women kidnapped and later killed.

“The issues of Uganda is making me sick. I should have died long ago pushing for the better but God is fighting for me. I had closed the door and kept myself off the media,” woman activist, Maria says in an exclusive interview with TND News on Monday.

Matembe was “responding” to a Court ruling in which suspects formerly accused of murdering women in Entebbe were acquitted.

“By the way I didn’t know Court ruled that way. Is it on newspaper or TV?”, she asked.

Matembe and other women activists last year, walked to Parliament and tasked government to respond to high profile murders that was a routine business in Uganda.
