STATE LODGE, NAKASERO: President Yoweri Museveni has said they already have clues to the killers who shot at Gen. Edward Katumba Wamala’s vehicle injuring him and leaving his daughter and driver dead.
“I talked to Gen. Katumba twice on the phone. He is being well- managed. We shall defeat the criminals as we did in the past. We already have clues to those killers,” he said in a shot statement issued at Nakasero State Lodge in Kampala.
“The pigs who do not value life shot at Gen. Katumba, killed his daughter and driver and injured him. Condolences on the loss of the two Ugandans,” he said.
President Museveni said that besides, the new system of digital beacons on all vehicles and boda bodas will eliminate the misuse of vehicles and boda bodas to commit crimes.
“I wish Gen. Katumba quick recovery. The bodyguard should not have shot in the air. He should have shot to kill. We could be having a dead terrorist instead of scaring away the terrorists. His shooting saved Gen. Katumba by scaring the criminals away.
However, killing one or more of the terrorists would have done the same and more,” he said.
This morning at 8.30am along Kisota road in Kisaasi, armed assailants on two motorbikes trailed and shot at the vehicle of Gen. Edward Katumba Wamala injuring him and killing his daughter and driver.
According to a UPDF statement, Gen. Wamala was evacuated to Malcom Clinic in Kisaasi from where he was picked for further treatment.
