Ugandan Transport Minister General Katumba Wamala survived an assassination attempt that left his daughter and driver dead on Tuesday morning, the army has confirmed.
Gunmen sprayed the former army chief’s car with bullets, killing the daughter who was in the vehicles with him and the driver.
The attack happened near Wamala’s home in a suburb of Kampala, the Ugandan capital, military spokeswoman Brigadier Flavia Byekwaso told the Reuters news agency.
Wamala sustained injuries in his shoulders during the attack.
Media reports indicate that Wamala’s attackers were four in number and were using a motorcycle.
