President Museveni’s statement following the shooting of Gen. Wamala
President Museveni made a statement following the shooting of Gen. Katumba Wamala whose vehicle was shot at this morning.
Below is President Museveni’s statement after what happened:
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.
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.
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.
Yoweri T K Museveni.
President of Uganda
