The Principal Judge of Uganda Dr Flavian Zeija has survived an assassination attempt.
This has been revealed by the Judiciary Public Relations Officer Jamson Karemani on Sunday.
According to Karemani, the gun attack on Dr Zeija occurred on Saturday evening at about 7pm along Kampala-Masaka Highway when unknown gunmen shot at his convoy.
“Thankfully, the Principal Judge and his entire team escaped unhurt from the incident,” Karemani said in a statement.
“The Judiciary condemns in the strongest terms such as barbaric conduct whose intentions are only known to those who engage in such acts of lawlessness. This was an act of cowardice and we are confident that the perpetrators shall at an appropriate time be brought to book. The Uganda Police Force has commenced investigations into the matter,”he added.
Karemani further implored members of the public to remain calm as the responsible authorities and institutions undertake their investigative role.
“We shall keep the public updated on any new developments as and when they come in, where necessary.”
