Museveni visits scene of Kirumira shooting, leaves with eyewitnesses

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni yesterday visited the scene where former Buyende District Police Commander, Muhammad Kirumira was gunned down by unknown assailants.

The assailants shot Kirumira together with the unidentified woman he was driving within his Toyota Corona vehicle number UAJ 228Von Saturday night at around 8:00 pm in Bulenga, Wakiso District along Kampala Mityana Road.

Following the shooting, Museveni dashed to the scene with his security ring armed to the teeth. He would then walk to the scene as he delivered instructions to his men not to walk over specific crime spots.

Museveni then summoned the crowd that was watching from a distance. He asked: “Bani Ababadewo (who witnessed the shooting)”, and two people raised their hands. Museveni got the two on the side and started interrogating them privately.

Meanwhile, a number of people could be heard shouting; ‘Bosco, Bosco, abasajja ba firing squad batumalawo (We are being killed).’

Museveni also on noticing he was on camera, angrily told journalists; “Switch off the cameras, switch off the cameras,” before ordering the eyewitnesses into a waiting car.

“Nga kitalo nyo banange, tujja kuda (This is a tragic loss, we shall come back),” Museveni said as he drove off with the eyewitnesses.
