Gen Tumukunde was shot by military police.

Gen Henry Tumukunde, according to eye witness, was shot at 4am today morning at Kagote SDA hall where the Western Uganda Youth Mp elections took place.

“He went to rescue his son, Amanya Tumukunde, who is a candidate and had been beaten by SFC soldiers commanded by President Museveni’s brother, Michael Toyota Kaguta and Lt.Col. Karugaba, from military police,” the eye witness told EagleOnline.

The eye witness added; “After getting out of the hall while at the gate, Karugaba gave order to shoot and it is at that point that he and his body guard Charles Opoka were shot in the legs.”

Police, however, says that Gen Tumukunde was injured by a teargas canister.
