A motorcyclist only identified as Vincent was shot in the buttocks in Kisimbiri trading centre in Wakiso district, on Tuesday night when he refused to heed to the president Museveni’s curfew order.

“It’s alleged that the victim attempted to knock Police officers who were on duty several times but he failed and then grabbed Constable Isaac Kabos , assaulted him and in the process of rescuing Kabos, another officer, Stephen Wafula shot and injured him,” KMP Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango said.

The president on Monday ordered for a night curfew between 7pm and 6:30 am as one of the ways to deal with criminals who would want to terrorize members of the public during the current situation.

He said that the victim was rushed to Mulago for treatment as they await to interrogate him to ascertain his motive. Onyango added that an assault case file has been opened against the victim.

“We would wish to appeal to members of the general public to respect security personnel on duty and obey their orders.”

In his address to the nation on Tuesday, President Museveni appealed to Ugandans to respect curfew in order to avoid “incidents.”
