Ugandan minister shot by gunmen

Uganda’s Transport Minister General Katumba Wamala has been shot and injured by unknown gunmen near his home in the capital Kampala.

Eyewitnesses say the gunmen were riding on a motorcycle. General Wamala is a former army commander.

Over the last few years, the country has been rocked by such shootings by armed men riding on motorcycles.

In June 2018, Ibrahim Abiriga, a flamboyant politician and ardent supporter of President Yoweri Museveni, was shot and killed near his home.

Former police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi was assassinated in a similar manner in April 2017.

A magistrate and several Muslim clerics were killed in the same way.

None of the assassinations has ever been successfully investigated or prosecuted.
