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

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

After the shooting, president Museveni dashed to the crime scene. Museveni who arrived at the scene at around 11:50pm dressed in a cream jacket and his trademark hat signaled to residents who were watching from a safe distance to converge.

He asked those who witnessed the shooting to volunteer information. Unidentified youth stood up from the crowd and followed by a boda boda rider. Museveni started interrogating them on what they had seen. He took almost five minutes speaking to the duo.

At this time, Museveni, who looked perturbed ordered journalists to switch off their gadgets. Those who persisted were roughed up by the President’s security that arrived at the scene armed to the teeth.

President Museveni took both eyewitnesses with him as they were seen boarding one of the vehicles in the presidential motorcade. The president later comforted resident of the area on the loss of Kirumira. “Ngakitalo, mwebale nnyo mwebale nnyo tujja kudda,” the president said as he waved to the crowd.
