Accounts of my recent attempted assassination 

On the 12th of March, I suspended my son and driver Isaac who had been reported by residents of Kayunga  that he was in company of people I had suspended from my political Camp…. I then requested the PS to allow Yasin one of the drivers at the  Ministry to drive me to Kyankwanzi. But before the retreat ended, I had to leave for Kayunga to mobilize the residents to attend the Isimba HHP Dam commissioning and by last Friday, Yasin was evidently tired. He then requested to go home which I allowed because Saturday is a SABBATH/Resting DAY. On Sunday morning at around 10am I asked my bodyguard to drive me back to Kampala….so we set off….

……The assassination incident/attempt ……..

The fact is they attempted to finish us from a road side grocery where I usually stop to buy my groceries and if God had not helped me to see the assassin fast enough  before he got close to us ….we would have been murdered……good enough I quickly shouted on seeing a Sports bike riding from Kabimbiri towards us and  my body guard quickly  cocked the gun and jumped out of the car very fast ….then the assassin pretended as if he was heading to Kayunga/ Sezibwa Bridge,  but then made a Uturn in a few meters this time riding on the left side towards my vehicle  I think to try his luck again ….. at this time Tugume was on Standby with his gun ready to shoot. The assassin by passed me and parked right infront of my official car. Tugume moved very fast and stood just behind his bike… I quickly asked the woman/ attendant at the grocery to go and ask this suspect what he wanted….. she then reached out to this man and asked him ….”oyagala ki”…..he replied….”where is Kambimbiri town”? ……the woman responded ….”yeyo town mwoyise ssebo, he then looked back only to see that my bodyguard was right behind him with a gun in his hands. He then started the bike and rode off heading to Kampala. Tugume then asked me to drive and follow the bike Which I did. I drove off also and shortly when I reached him, Tugume waved his left hand and asked him to stop. He slowed down pretending as though he was parking by the road side but again, he took off at a very high speed. I then asked my body guard to shoot him or in the air or his tyres. He replied that, “let’s wait to see whether he stops at Kabimbiri.” To our surprise, the man just continued past Kabimbiri…..and that’s when Tugume advised that we follow him to Naggalama as he started calling his SFC counter parts to contact Naggalama Police Station to cut off/ to mount a road block……as we continued following this man from a  distance because we had to keep our eyes in all directions without losing track of this man. After Nakifuma, he slowed down and branched off to the left just before Naggalama Police Station. Indeed I had taken a decision to follow him all through but Tugume shouted and stopped me saying we may end up in their ambush.  I stopped immediately and reversed to the main road and drove to Naggalama Police Station where indeed the DPC responded very fast by sending out Police Patrols to cut off all the routes. I was then advised to go back to the Police Station. After two hours, the O.C station got information that they had arrested them. I then informed him that it was only one man who was riding the sports bike. The O.C then replied. “Hon. It’s true but he was later on joined by another person. It seems his accomplices were waiting for him from that same route. So they are two but one has escaped and they are coming back with the other,” he said. I then asked my bodyguard to rush to the scene to verify and either confirm the O.C station’s report. Unfortunately, they found the suspect/assassin was shot dead and they communicated accordingly.

But before all this, we had stopped right before Sezibwa Bridge to greet Hon. Mutebi  who was also heading to Kampala. As I was talking to him, a boda boda carrying two men riding towards Sezibwa bridge first passed by us and the two men waved at me. Three minutes later, the same Boda  came back and stopped right next to us. The people on it jumped off and greeted me and one of them asked me to visit Buyobe Village. Then they again took the direction of Kayunga but we did not mind about them…..but , as  Tugume was standing behind this suspected assassin at Sinda market, the boda boda resurfaces again with the very  two men and stopped a few meters ahead. As we were about to approach Kabimbiri town, we saw them again one on the Boda boda the other standing on the road side but did not get to see them again…..

Questions

1. If he was an innocent man…. why didn’t he stop the bike when we first stopped him?

2. If he was going to visit his children to a school located in  Kabimbiri, then how come he passed Kabimbiri and proceeded to Sinda where I had parked to buy my groceries?

3. Why did he again make  a U turn after passing by my vehicle at a very low speed as we suspected that he wanted to  make another attempt?

4. Why run all the way to Naggalama from Sinda and then to Naggojje if he had reached his first destination?

5. Why did he run away from Police Patrol vehicles as they pursued him. Why didn’t he stop and declare he was harmlessness or innocent?

6. When their bike hit a hump and he fell off. Why again did they run to the Bush as the Patrol approached them? Why not stop and declare your innocence?

7. Then finally, under whose Orders was this man shot dead, as the eye witnesses broadcasted on NTV  yesterday narrated?

8. May the name of the Lord be praised for saving my life

Put Emphasis On The Conduct Of Katushabe’s Killers Before And After Her Murder – Judge Guides Court Assessors In Tycoon Sebuufu’s Murder Case

Published

on

Judge Angeline Flavia Senoga, the presiding High Court judge in the murder case in which pine car bond tycoon Muhammad Sebuufu and six others are charged with three counts of murder, kidnap and armed robbery, has guided the three court assessors to base their opinion more on the conduct of the suspects before and after the murder of city businesswoman Betty Donah Katushabe. 

In her summation of evidence, the judge noted that the assessors must carefully assess the evidences brought by the 26 witnesses produced by prosecution side before the court by the state prosecution team and reply from the defense and advise her from the laymen’s observations.

She guided them to look carefully into whether Katushabe was illegally kidnapped from her home in Bwebajja on Entebbe road and taken to pine car bond on Lumumba avenue. She further guided the assessors to asks themselves why Katushabe was taken to pine car bond and not CPS police. She also guided the assessors to also look into the evidence brought to court that Steven Lwanga, one of the suspects was ordered by police to drive Katushabe to Central Police Station (CPS) after seriously being tortured to die. It’s alleged that Lwanga drove a half dead Katushabe to CPS but refused to hand her over to police and decided to drive her back to pine were she was later picked by police.

The judge asked the assessors to examine Lwanga’s hidden agenda of not handing Katushabe over to police. The judge also tasked the assessors to look into the police case filed by Sebuufu’s assistants at CPS police complaining about theft of his car by the deceased. The judge wondered why the case was not followed up by the complainant until the deceased was murdered. She asked the assessors to evaluate the evidence against Sebuufu that by the time the diseased was tortured and murdered, he was at Mwanga two court and he was not present at the scene. The Judge set 29th this month for the assessors to give their opinion so that she can give her final verdict. The state alleges that Sebuufu and the co-accused murdered Katushabe after she failed to pay the balance of shs9m on the Toyota premio car she had purchased from the pine car bond.
