BY OUR REPORTER

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has vowed to “defeat” armed assailants who attacked and injured former Works and Transport minister Gen Edward Katumba Wamala in a today’s morning assassination attempt which left his daughter and driver dead.

Gen (rtd) Museveni said the former chief of defense forces (CDF) was being well-managed and added that the security team has clues to the assailants he described as pigs who do not value life.

Meanwhile, the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, the Most Rev. Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu has condemned the early morning shooting in Kisaasi, a Kampala suburb involving the former Transport and Works Minister, General Edward Katumba Wamala.

Unidentified gunmen opened fire at Katumba’s vehicle registration number H4DF 2138 along Kisaasi-Kisota road killing his daughter, Brenda Nantongo Wamala and driver, Haruna Kayondo.

The General escaped with gunshot wounds in the shoulders and is currently admitted at Madipal International Hospital.

Addressing journalists at his residence in Namirembe, hours after the incident, Kazimba said that they are saddened with the news of the attempted assassination of Wamala and the killing of his daughter and driver.
