BUGINGO SHOOTING: What We Know So Far As City Pastor Survives Bullets By a Whisker

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

It’s still shocking that unknown gunmen made an assassination attempt on House Of Prayer Ministries International Pastor Aloysious Bugingo as he was heading home.

Bugingo survived the bullets but his driver only identified as Richard unfortunately didn’t survive. The Salt Media boss was immediately rushed to Mulago Hospital in critical condition where he’s currently receiving treatment from but those who have talked to him him contend that he’s now in a stable condition.


The incident took place near Total Petrol Station in Namungoona, Wakiso district. His assassination attempts is one of those that have claimed lives of many especially government officials and Muslim clerics.

He’s an ardent supporter of president Museveni but also normally rallies Ugandans to support Museveni’s son Gen Muhoozi Keinerugaba as he throws jibes and criticism on the opposition especially Bobi Wine who also in 2018 lost his driver Yasin Kawuma after UPDF soldiers shot him in the Arua Fracas.

As usual and like before, police has spread the nets wide in the investigation to bring the perpetrators to book as we wait for the pastor who is still in shock to narrate his version of the story.

In the past, drivers have normally died together with their bosses like it was the case with Andrew Felix Kawesi whose body guard and driver were killed, Yasin Kawuma Bobi Wine’s driver died, Minister Katumba Wamala’s driver Haruna Kayondo died instantly as gunmen rained bullets on the minister’s car on 1st June 2021.

In November 2016, Major Muhammed Kigundu who was a husband to famous traditionalist Mama Fina was shot dead by unknown gunmen together with his driver who was only identified as Sgt Mukasa. In June 2018, the then Arua Municipality legislator Ibrahim Abiriga was shot dead together with his body guard in Kawanda.

Most of these shootings have been attributed to the Allied Democratic forces (ADF) by president Museveni who normally call them pigs
