Secretary General of the ruling National Resistance Movement, Justine Kasule Lumumba has joined the rest of peace lovers in the country to mourn slain police officer, ASP Muhammad Kirumira.
The Assistant Superintendent of Police was shot by unknown gunmen as he entered his home in Bulenga, a suburb of Kampala on Sunday evening.
He was killed alongside his neighbour, Resty Narinya who had sought a lift from him on their way from a function.
Police and other security agencies have embarked on a hunt for killers who were reportedly using a motorcycle.
“I learnt with shock the assassination of ASP Mohammad Kirumira and the female occupant in the car last evening,” said Lumumba in a text message released by the NRM communications chief, Rogers Mulindwa.
Kirumira, Lumumba said, is known to have been an open minded and committed young police officer whose service especially in fighting crime will greatly be missed within the Uganda Police Force and the entire security circle.
“NRM continues to strongly condemn these brutal murders and call upon the President of the Republic of Uganda, and Commander In Chief to task the security team to bring such incidents to zero level,” she said.
Praying for his soul to rest in peace, Lumumba said that Kirumira has gone too early leaving behind a young family.
“Condolenses to his parents, relatives, the people of Busega and the entire Ugandan Community for this great loss,” a shocked looking Lumumba said.
