Uganda’s Transport Minister General Katumba Wamala has been shot and injured by unknown gunmen near his home in the capital Kampala.
Eyewitnesses say the gunmen were riding on a motorcycle.
General Wamala is a former army commander.
Over the last few years, the country has been rocked by such shootings by armed men riding on motorcycles.
In June 2018, Ibrahim Abiriga, a flamboyant politician and ardent supporter of President Yoweri Museveni, was shot and killed near his home.
Former police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi was assassinated in a similar manner in April 2017.
A magistrate and several Muslim clerics were killed in the same way.
None of the assassinations has ever been successfully investigated or prosecuted
