President Yoweri Museveni has announced a new resolution following an assassination attempt on former Army Commander Gen Katumba Wamala on Tuesday last week.
After delivering his address about COVID-19 yesterday on Sunday evening, Museveni took a few more minutes and commented about the rising talks concerning insecurity in Uganda especially when it comes to gun violence.
“These fellows who attacked Gen Katumba met a traffic police but the traffic police was not armed that’s how they ran away. These people took advantage of our laxity. Now they have alerted us. The traffic police will be armed or paired with armed people,” Museveni said.
On why Katumba did not have escort patrol, Museveni said: “If the General and the population is not alert then they can be attacked. In the case of Gen Katumba he also made some mistakes because apparently, he was moving without a follow car. He was moving with one escort and a driver. I didn’t know that. Because a four-star general should be having a follow car.”
