Gen Katumba who still has a bullet in his body was on Tuesday attacked by armed assailants moving on two motorcycles. They shot over 50 bullets on his car.

In his statement issued on Wednesday, Gen Katumba told Ugandans that last evening he had a surgery and one bullet was removed. He however added that because of how the other bullet affected his arteries, it was not removed, and the doctors will advise on the way forward.
