The Toyota Premio that was knocked by the White lady

A gun-wielding man has this evening slapped and pulled out a pistol on an American lady said to be a tourist.

The incident took place along Parliament Avenue, opposite IPS Building, after the white lady said to be an American, accidently knocked the car of a man whose identity is still unknown.

According to eye witnesses, when the lady knocked the car, a Toyota Premio Reg. No. UAW 763J, she came out to establish the extent of the damage.

However, the eyewitness, a one Wilfred Busingye said a guy seated in the co-driver’s seat in the knocked car came out, slapped the Muzungu lady and pulled out a pistol to shoot her.

“Terrified, the Muzungu shouted, which attracted the attention of her colleagues who had remained in her car. Police officers rushed to the scene from Ministry of ICT Building, the gun man jumped on a boda and sped off. The vehicle has minor scratches,” Mr. Busingye, who witnessed the incident, posted on his Facebook page.

Contacted, Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Emilian Kayima said the matter had not been brought to the attention of police.

“It has not come to me, let them report to police and then we shall investigate. But the matter hasnt been brought to us then we cant help,” Mr Kayima said on phone.

Many other people who took to social media said the incident reignites debate about reckless gun-wielding Ugandans, and also draws parallels with the murder of child activist, Kenneth Akena, who was allegedly shot by one Mathew Kanyamunyu.
