Police alongside military and intelligence agencies have started hunting for gunmen who killed the bodyguard of Pastor Aloysius Bujingo.
Bujingo who heads House of Prayer Ministries was attacked on Tuesday at around 9 pm by gunmen moving on a motorcycle.
Although Bujingo survived with minor injuries, his bodyguard Richard Muhumuza died on the spot.
The incident happened at Buwalakata road junction, Namungona, in Lubaga Division in Kampala.
Luke Owoyesigyire, the Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson said comprehensive investigations into the tragic incident have commenced.
By the time police, intelligence, and military arrived at the scene, locals had tampered with the scene and nothing much could be collected as exhibits.
This has left police with the only option of using CCTV cameras to identify the assassins’ movement.
Bujingo is currently undergoing medical treatment and is under close monitoring. So far, police have recorded statements from eyewitnesses.
Muhumuza’s body was conveyed to the City Mortuary at Mulago for a thorough postmortem examination.
Every year, gunmen kill a prominent person in Kampala who is either a politician, security person, business person, or cleric.
Meanwhile, unknown people ransacked the home of former Kawempe MP Mubarak Munyagwa on Tuesday.
However, Owoyesigyire said Munyagwa is very well except that his home guard was injured by the thugs.
