Two priests have been admitted in Hoima after being assaulted by assailants, in separate incidents.

Father John Mary Kugonza of Mugalike catholic parish and Denis Atugonza the pastor of Hoima gospel center Church, were beaten into comma on Thursday night.

Father Kugonza was attacked outside Safe Life Bar, when he stepped out for short call, while Pastor Atugonza was beaten into comma at Mukiti in Hoima town.

Zurah Ganyana, the Midwestern regional police publicist says father Kugonza sustained machete wounds on his head.
