President Museveni has said that the attack on General Katumba Wamala was politically motivated.
The President was speaking after the budget reading on Thursday at
Kololo Independence Grounds.
According to President Museveni, the attack was a definite
political motive, and they will know who was behind the attack. He says that
people who use assassination are not sure of themselves.
Museveni explained that as the National Resistance Movement (NRM)
they never use assassination but rather prefer preserving even their opponent.
He told MPs that there are many people he would have killed
because they were annoying him, citing Dokolo Woman MP Cecilia Ogwal whom he
said a bad tongue and Former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) President Dr
//Cue in: “There are so…
Cue out: “…but he was killed”//
The President also tasked the Internal Affairs Minister-Designate
General David Muhoozi to fast track the installation of digital monitors in
every vehicle and motorbikes. He said that the project that was being handled
by Gen Elly Tumwine, and Gen Katumba Wamala was delayed.
The President also said that they have already strengthened the
forensic capacity to detect criminality.
//Cue in: “And the digital…
Cue out:…piki piki was here”//
Museveni also gave an update on Gen Katumba’s attack, saying that they
left behind a piece of cloth that was unfortunately picked by unknown people.
