It took efforts from Police to disperse the two groups with tear gas and live bullets. It is one of the bullets that finished Kawuma’s life, who was seated in Bobi Wine’s Tundra car.
It is not clear who shot the driver, but we can reliably confirm he died on spot.
By press time, police had not yet commented on both incidences however the Kyadondo East lawmaker Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert aka Bobi Wine has been arrested and taken to a yet to be identified destination.
