The Ugandan president, Yoweri Museveni, has vowed to defeat the criminals who shot and wounded a former army commander, killing his daughter and driver.
An army spokeswoman described it as an assassination attempt on Gen Katumba Wamala and said security forces were investigating a number of phone calls that may provide leads.
The attack on the current government minister of works and transport, who has also headed Uganda’s police force, is not the first high profile shooting.
In recent years victims have included a magistrate, Muslim clerics, a politician and ardent supporter of President Museveni and a senior police chief. None of the murders has ever been successfully investigated or prosecuted.Article share tools
