Museveni, Gen Katumba Wamala Speak over Phone

posted onJune 1, 2021

President Yoweri Museveni has spoken to the former minister of transport and works Gen Katumba Wamala on phone and learnt that he’s “being well-managed”.

The president, who described the assailants who shot the general as “pigs”, said the investigators already have clues to the killers and with the hi-tech surveillance systems in the country, they’ll be captured.

“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,” the president tweeted today afternoon.

“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.”

President Museveni wished the general “quick recovery”.

He, however, noted that instead of shooting in the air, the bodyguard should have shot to kill.

“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,” he said.

Assailants today morning sprayed bullets at Gen. Wamala’s car, killing his daughter and a driver.

The general sustained injuries in the arm and shoulder. They were driving on Kisota Road-Kisaasi at 8:30am.
