At least one person was killed on Monday by a security detail attached to Yoweri Museveni, the long serving President of Uganda, after his motorcade and official car came under attack by hooligans, police said.

Police said one of his official cars was smashed as he left a campaign rally in the northwestern district of Arua.

The sudden attack with stones forced his security detail to open fire, killing one person instantly.

In a statement, Emilian Kayima said hooligans pelted stones at Museveni’s motorcade as he left Arua Boma Grounds where he had held the last campaign rally for his ruling party candidate, Nusura Tiperu at Prisons Cell.

“Security forces quickly intervened to calm down the situation, and the situation became riotous as many were pelting stones at the convoy of the president, which is unacceptable.

“We condemn these acts of violence that do not show how mature we are politically,” he said, according to local media.

Several people have been arrested in connection with the attack.
