Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) has confirmed an investigation into an act of attempted murder of Pr. Alloysious Bugingo of the House of Prayer Ministry.

One person identified as Richard Muhumuza died in the incident.

The Police say the incident happened at 9 PM on January 2, 2024, when unidentified assailants opened fire on Pr Bugingo’s vehicle, registered as PRAIZ GOD, along Namungona, Zone 2, Kasubi Rubaga Division Kampala, at Bwalakata Junction along National Housing Road, before swiftly escaping the scene on a motorcycle.

Despite sustaining injuries during the attack, Pr. Bugingo reportedly managed to drive himself in the same vehicle to Mulago Hospital.

Muhumuza succumbed to the assault and was confirmed dead upon arrival at the hospital. Currently, Pr. Bugingo is undergoing medical treatment at Mulago Hospital.

Who was Muhumuza?

However, while the Police say the deceased was Pr. Bugingo’s bodyguard, the Senior Presidential Advisor on Special Operations, Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, has a different say:

A friend and member of his church was killed by the assassin.

The Four-star General has meanwhile called for a quick probe.

“We praise the Lord that our strong supporter, Pastor Bugingo, survived an attempt on his life last night as he was driving home. I have spoken to him and he is well. He got slightly wounded in his left shoulder. A friend and member of his church was killed by the assassin. Once again we urge the law enforcement agencies to quickly investigate and bring these criminals to justice. Who are these criminals? Is it ADF or some other shadowy group? We need answers to these questions. This is the second attack on our supporters in the last 8 months and no offender has been brought to book yet. The case of the cold blooded murder of Isma Olaxess is still unresolved. Once again we thank God that Pastor Bugingo survived this heinous attack,” said Gen. Muhoozi.

In the active pursuit of justice, the Police say “we are thoroughly reviewing CCTV footage to identify the assailants.”
