President Museveni has revealed and confirmed claims that the gun that was used five years ago in the shooting of Major Kigundu a former ADF rebel commander is the same gun that was used on Tuesday in the assassination attempt of Gen Katumba Wamala killing his daughter Brenda Nantongo and driver Haruna Kayondo.
The commander in chief revealed this in his state of the nation address help at Kololo this evening as he re-iterated government’s commitment to fight criminality more so the assasins he normally calls pigs because they don’t value human life.
Gun men riding on motor cycles on shot Major Kigundu on 26 November 2016 in Masanafu a Kampala surburb. Laboratory analytical findings done from the Tuesday crime scene of Katumba Wamala show that the same AK-47 rifle used on Kigundu is the same that the killers came with to finish Katumba.

The president also clarified that for this particular case of Gen Katumba Wamala, the killers were captured on CCTV cameras while executing their mission unfortunately covered their faces with face masks making it hard for the forensics and identification though several people have been arrested to aid in the investigations.
“For instance the gun which was used is already identified which was used in the case of the Katumba attack it’s the same one which was used in the Kigundu case….”-Said museveni
Just like the previous cases of gun killings and assassinations of high profile Ugandans, the question remains why police doesn’t table reports, why the killers use the same method with motor bikes and now using the same gun, are the killers the same. We wait to see these questions answered and the killers brought to book.
