National Unity Platform (NUP) leader and former presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine says the attempted assassination on Gen Katumba Wamala is an indication that lawlessness knows no class.
“The assassination attempt on Gen. Katumba Wamala which left his daughter and driver killed in cold blood is another indication that lawlessness does not only affect common citizens but also high ranking members of society,” Kyagulanyi tweeted.
“It is absurd and it is a terrible time in Uganda. It is frightening but we pray that God will continue to strengthen the family of Gen Katumba Wamala and we are thankful to God that his life has been spared, we pray for his quick recovery,” he said.
He said that such incidents should remind all the citizens that the state of lawlessness in not only a risk to the commonly citizen but to all Ugandans.
Kyagulanyi via his social media handles said that the unfortunate incident should be an eye opener for all Ugandans that no one is safe.
“NO ONE IS SAFE! This is the painful reality that all Ugandans must all open our eyes to. My condolences to the family of Gen. Katumba and the family and we hope that he gets well soon,” he added.
In a separate interview, the NUP leader told NBS TV that the security forces have rather than securing Ugandans and their property, concentrated on “arresting and detaining innocent citizens” because of their political beliefs.
