Last night, an attempted assassination targeted Pastor Bugingo, a staunch supporter of General Muhoozi Kainerugaba, head of the MK Movement. The attack, which occurred as Bugingo was driving home, resulted in the tragic death of a close friend and member of Bugingo’s church. Fortunately, Bugingo survived the assault but sustained a minor injury to his left shoulder.
General Muhoozi Kainerugaba expressed gratitude that Bugingo survived the heinous attack and confirmed speaking with the pastor, assuring the public of Bugingo’s well-being despite the injury.
In a statement following the incident, Kainerugaba urged law enforcement agencies to swiftly investigate and apprehend the perpetrators responsible for this brazen act of violence. This marks the second assault on their supporters within the span of 8 months, with the previous case involving the unresolved murder of Isma Olaxess.
Expressing concern over the recurring attacks, Kainerugaba called for clarity on the identity of the assailants. “Who are these criminals? Is it ADF or some other shadowy group? We need answers to these questions,” the General stated, emphasizing the urgency of uncovering the perpetrators behind these violent acts.
The lack of resolution in previous attacks has raised serious concerns about the safety of supporters aligned with the MK Movement. Despite efforts by law enforcement, no offenders have been brought to justice in prior cases, amplifying the urgency for a comprehensive investigation and swift action.
The incident has sparked fear and apprehension among the community, highlighting the need for immediate action to prevent further violence and ensure the safety of individuals associated with the movement.
As investigations commence, authorities face mounting pressure to identify and apprehend those responsible, offering a semblance of justice for the victims and their families. The resilience and survival of Pastor Bugingo in the face of this harrowing ordeal stand as a testament to the gravity of the situation and the necessity for decisive action.
The public eagerly awaits updates from law enforcement regarding the progress of the investigation, hoping for swift justice and a resolution to these disturbing incidents targeting supporters of the MK Movement.
