President of Uganda, also Commander in Chief of all armed forces, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has wished General Katumba Wamala quick recovery, describing his assailants as ‘pigs’ who do not value life.
Seemingly angry Museveni has also said that he wished the bodyguard had shot to kill the assailants as opposed to just shooting in the air to scare them away.
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 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,” says Museveni.
Via his verified Twitter handle, Museveni noted;“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 a 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.
Signed: Yoweri T K Museveni.
Gen(rtd). President of Uganda.”
Museveni’s words stem from an assassination by unknown gun men that reportedly targeted former UPDF Commander Gen Katumba Wamala who was attacked just after 9am in a city suburb. He took some bullets in the body but survived, while his daughter and driver were killed on the spot.
