Reading Time: < 1 minute

President Yoweri Museveni has blamed Gen. Katumba Wamala’s bodyguard for having failed to kill one of the gunmen who attacked and tried to kill the former Chief of Defense Forces.

In a statement issued by his office on Tuesday, Museveni said if the bodyguard had fired directly at the assailants, probably one of them would be dead by now.

“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,” Museveni statement reads in part.

This morning at 8.30 am along Kisota road in Kisaasi, gunmen on two motorbikes trailed and shot at the vehicle of Gen. Edward Katumba Wamala injuring him and killing his daughter Brenda Nantongo and driver Haruna Kayondo.

By press time the bodies of the two were still at the Kampala Capital City Authority mortuary undergoing post-mortem.
