The bodyguard of the former Works and Transport Minister, General Edward Katumba
Wamala engaged the assailants who killed his daughter and driver this morning
in Kisaasi, a Kampala suburb forcing them to flee.
The Speaker of Parliament, Jacob
Oulanyah disclosed this after visiting Gen. Katumba at Medipal hospital along Acacia
avenue where he is being treated for gunshot wounds. Unidentified gunmen riding on motorcycles intercepted
Katumba’s vehicle registration number H4DF 2138 along Kisota road in Kisaasi
and sprayed it with bullets killing his daughter, Brenda Wamala Nantongo 27,
and driver, Haruna Kayondo on the spot.
Katumba sustained two gunshot wounds in his shoulders and
was rushed to Malcolm Hospital in Kisaasi for treatment before being transferred
to Medipal hospital. Oulanyah, who visited Katumba together with his Deputy Anita
Among, says that the attackers approached the General’s vehicle from the back
and front and were determined to eliminate him.
He, however, says that Katumba's bodyguard shot back at the assailants
forcing them to flee.
//Cue in: “He is the…
Cue out:…came to help,”//
According to Oulanyah, the Katumba is heartbroken because of the assassination of
//Cue in: “General is okay…
Cue out:…his mother in law,”//
Oulanyah has called upon members of parliament to pray for Katumba since he had
just lost his mother-in-law.
