    Pastor Aloysius Bugingo of House of Prayer Ministries International has reportedly been shot in Kampala.

    It has been reported that Bugingo has been attacked by gunmen along Bawalakata Road in Namungoona, a Kampala suburb Tuesday night. The attack has left his bodyguard assistant Muhumuza Richard dead.

    The Uganda Police has released a press release confirming the incident and has said that unidentified assailants opened fire on Pastor Bugingo’s vehicle, registered as PRAIZ GOD, along Namungoona, Zone 2, Kasubi, Rubaga Division, Kampala at Bwalakata Junction along National Housing Road.

    According to the Uganda Police officials, Bugingo sustained little bruises and was rushed to Mulago National Referral Hospital on Tuesday night where he is receiving treatment.

    The Senior Presidential Advisor in charge of Special Operations, Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, has demanded a swift investigation into circumstances under which his close friend and supporter was attacked.

    While twitting on his X-media, Muhoozi said, “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,” he emphasized.

    The Director of Salt Media Group of Companies regularly uses his pulpit to criticize the opposition while at the same time rallying support for President Museveni and presidential hopeful Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba.

    “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,” he added.

    Muhoozi said Bugingo was recovering from injuries sustained in the attack.

    “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,” said the former Land Forces commander.

    He got slightly wounded in his left shoulder. A friend and member of his church was killed by the assassin.”
