(Al Jazeera) Gunmen have attacked and wounded Uganda’s former army commander, killing his daughter and driver in an assassination attempt.
Four attackers on motorcycles opened fire at a vehicle carrying General Katumba Wamala, the minister of works and transport, in the Kampala suburb of Kiasasi on Tuesday, local television station NBS reported.
“There was a shooting involving him … he is hurt and he’s been taken to the hospital, his driver was killed,” army spokeswoman Brigadier Flavia Byekwaso said.
Wamala’s daughter, who was in the vehicle with him, was also killed, NBS reported.
Images circulating on social media showed Katumba in apparent distress outside an SUV, his light-coloured trousers splattered with blood.
