Former works and transport minister, Gen Edward Katumba Wamala has appealed to his family to keep calm saying he will be fine following an assassination attempt that left his daughter and driver dead.
The former UPDF commander of land forces who is currently admitted at Medipal International Hospital was shot in the shoulders in the attack that left his daughter Brenda Nantongo and driver Haruna Kayondo dead. “To all my children, I will be fine. I have survived…we have lost Brenda but that’s God’s plan. She did nothing to this world but the bad guys have done it, but God has given me second chance. Don’t worry, I don’t have bad injuries; only the arms but I will be fine.
I’m with the doctors and they are doing everything possible. I love you guys but please pray for mummy because she’s in a terrible state. Please pray for her and those who can come please do,” Gen Wamala said in a video recording to his family members.
Eye witnesses said four armed assailants riding on two motorcycles opened fire at the General’s vehicle along Kisota road near the Northern Bypass in Kisasi, a Kampala suburb.
