Police in Kampala are investigating circumstances under which Maj Gen (Rtd) Kasirye Ggwanga allegedly shot at a car apparently belonging to the National Resistance Movement leaning artiste, Ms Catherine Kusasira. The incident happened on Tuesday at Makindye, a Kampala suburb.

According to Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman, Superintendent of Police Patrick Onyango, the shooting followed a quarrel between Maj Gen Ggwanga’s children and Ms Kusasira’s aides over noise pollution.

“Maj Gen Ggwanga’s children were buying chips when the aides of Ms Kusasira arrived in car, whose music was loud. Maj Gen Ggwanga’s children told Ms Kusasira’s aides to turn down the volume, but they refused. Maj Gen Ggwanga’s children said they would call their father and burn their cheap car,” SP Onyango said.

SP Onyango added that Maj Gen Ggwanga arrived before he was called by his children and joined the quarrel insisting that Ms Kusasira’s aides should turn down the volume, which they refused to do.

“Ms Kusasira’s aides told Maj Gen Ggwanga that he wasn’t above the law. Then verbal exchange ensued. It is alleged that Maj Gen Ggwanga ordered one of his bodyguards (unidentified) to bring him his gun, and he then shot the tyre of Ms Kusasira’s car,” he said.

Maj Gen Ggwanga later entered his car and drove off.

“Police officers were called in and they have visited the scene and a case has been registered under SD reference 107/29/1/2019. We will invite all the parties to record their statements,” he said.

Police detectives are yet to confirm whether Ms Kusasira was in the car when the incident happened or not.

It should be noted that in 2017, Gwanga (then at the rank of brigadier), burnt the tractor on the land which he said was owned by his daughter at Naziba village on Lubowa hill in Ndejje, off Entebbe Road. He wasn’t charged of any offence.
