Gunmen shoot dead Lwengo businessman

Unknown gunmen have shot dead Zayire Matovu, a prominent coffee dealer in Lwengo district, and critically injured his brother, Morris Kato.

The incident occurred around 9 pm on Wednesday night at Kanku village in Kiwangala parish in Kisseka sub-county. Available information indicates that the two brothers were heading home in a Toyota Premio vehicle, registration number UAM 120N when the two gun-wielding men wearing police jackets shot at their vehicle several times.

The assailants disappeared on a motorcycle, leaving Matovu dead and Kato bleeding profusely. Residents rushed to the scene and rushed Kato to the hospital. The deceased’s son, Denis Mpuuga, says that they waited for Matovu and Kato to return home in vain until when they received information about the shooting.

Lwengo district police commander Peter Akampurira says that they have launched a manhunt for the assailants. According to eyewitnesses, the assailants were donning police jackets but Akampurira says criminals can use anything to disguise their operation.

Akampurira says they are yet to get any clues on the murder. Police have towed the deceased’s vehicle to Mbirizi police station as investigations continue.

Kato has been transferred to Mulago National Referral hospital in Kampala. Matovu’s body is lying at Masaka hospital mortuary pending a postmortem.  

The attack comes two days after unknown assailants opened fire on the vehicle of the former chief of defense forces (CDF) General Katumba Wamala, killing his daughter, Brenda Wamala Nantongo, and driver Haruna Kayondo. Katumba survived with two bullet wounds to his shoulders.

Uganda's criminals are on boda motor cycles, and if this boda boda nuisance is not solved, or even outlawed entirely, we shall suffer further at the hands of the said boda boda operators who rule Uganda's roads in cities and villages alike..

I get amazed and disgusted when boda bodas ride scot free with their Registration number plates raised intentionally to make it difficult for anyone including the police to read those number plates!!

I urge police to arrest those boda riders who now are kings on Uganda's roads and neighborhood s , that hide their number plates in order to commit crime and ride off undetected...

Can you imagine that some of them deliberately disconnect the tail lights on their new bikes to make it impossible to read their number plates at night???

Isn't hiding a motorcycle/vehicle numberplate a traffic offense???

But you heartless Wainainchi, you are one of the PIGS (people in government securities) Gen Tibuhaburwa referred to; who almost murdered Gen Katumba Wamala last but succeeded in killing his daughter.

If Ugandans were not so dumb they would have put down business and sort out the politics first by any means possible.

The least cost way is coming out in numbers and protest take over Government buildings. The longer they leave it, the more likely it will be sorted out from DRC advancing from there.

And that will kill a lot of people. That's why Museveni is building roads over there to pre empty the imminent attack.

All the advice we give falls on deaf ears. When Olubiri was attacked we volunteered to restore peace.

Unfortunately we joined the person we did not know anything about look where it has landed us. Unfortunately at my age now I can't take cover in the underarch. Siezi songa mbere tena. Lakini hawo vijana wadogo wanaeza.

Who killed Zebra Mando? What has been done to the killers?

It is this dictatorship which is killing Ugandans in cold blood and deceiving us with useless investigations which don't yield anything.

The dictator himself said he knows those who killed Zebra but almost 6 months later nothing has been done to the killers - no arrests, no prosecution, no nothing.

By the way, the dictator refers to the people who kill Ugandans as PIGS and if you know how to read a letter in an envelope (kusoma ebbaluwa mu bbaasa) the PIGS the dictator refers to means People In Government Service (P.I.G.S). I pity people who still trust this corrupt and murderous dictatorship.

Mbeho Achuc..I fully agree with you Mbeho.

These young people are multiplying in huge numbers and race in cities and pollute enviroent so much Also they are probably organised and when free you see them in street in groups chatting and looking weird

They come from all corners of Uganda and mostly are lazy just not willing to work in your estates but selling whatever they can sell to buy second hanf Japsnrse motorbikes.

They should be banned from. big cities and traffic problems solved with matatus and buses tramways etc.

It is scary to ride with them among thousands of noisy boda bodas crisdcroosing strerts in extremely dangerous manoeuvres and dangerous driving in big crowds

If you want to risk your dear lives do board some of them and gamble is you reach final destination unhurt.z

Hospitals are full of Ugandans with broken limbs.
I saw myself one young female passenger flying from motorbike in a desdly and fatal crash
