KAMPALA – Minister Gen. Katumba Wamala has been discharged from Medipal International Hospital where he was admitted on Tuesday morning following an assassination attempt.
Katumba has joined mourners at his Najeera-based home to pray for his daughter Brenda Nantongo Katumba who was killed in the assassination attacker.
Earlier in the morning in a series of tweets, Gen Katumba said he was recovering from a surgery that saw one of the bullets removed last evening but adds that another bullet is yet to be removed since it affected his arteries.
“My injuries are not alarming. I had surgery last evening, and one of the bullets was removed. However, because of how the other bullet affected my arteries, it was not removed, and the doctors will advise on the way forward,” he said.
He, however, revealed he has no clue about the motive of the attack but demands that the terrorists that tried to assassinate him are brought to book.
“I pray that one day soon, the terrorists that tried to assassinate me and took the lives of my daughter Brenda and driver Haruna will be brought to book. For God and my Country,” he added.
Katumba also praised his escort Sgt. Khalid Koboyoit for evacuating him from the crime scene as fast as he did and for shooting back at the terrorists saying things could have gotten worse.
The minister’s daughter will be laid to rest at their ancestral home in Mukono on Thursday.
