Buganda kingdom and Mengo establishment are still in shock after assailants opened fire at Lomwa Eng Daniel Bbosa who was the head of the Ndiga Clan in the kingdom and also the proprietor of Transa Electrical yesterday evening.

Details so far available indicate that Bbosa was killed as he was branching to his gate at home from some weekend functions which he attended with Katikiro Charles Peter Mayiga earlier in the day.


The two assailants according to eye witnesses first opened fire from behind then in front shooting several times in his face, Lomwa’s wife managed to escape the shooting as she opened the door of the car and ran off for her dear life.

The assailants are said to have rode off on the motor cycle registration number UEX 754E but unusually, some brave locals also pursued the killers who were finally also arrested and mob justice ensued on them. One assailant died on spot while the other was saved by police which reached the crime scene a bit early.

According to other details which emerged, while being pursued, the assailant who was holding the gun tried to shoot at the locals who were chasing them and the slid off his hands and fell in the back wheel of the motorcycle and this defined their fate as the angry locals thumped them to pulp killing one on spot.

The Killer Gun

The motive of this senseless murder is not yet known. But the shooting comes at a time when police just released the crimes report for 2023 and it emerged that over 300 people were victims of gun violence from the 279 in 2022.

This particular shooting comes less that 40 days since pastor Aloysius Bugingo of House of prayer was also shot around the same area of Lungujja in Lubaga division in an attack that claimed the life of his bodguard Richard Muhumuza.
