We’re always shouting in church as if God is deaf

President Yoweri Museveni has said that the Ugandan police may not have heard the gunshots which killed senior police officer, Muhammad Kirumira because of the loud noise from a nearby church.

Gunmen on a motorcycle taxi, known in Uganda as a boda boda, shot dead Mr Kirumira on Saturday as he was driving near his home in Bulenga town in the central region.

A woman who was also in the vehicle was also killed. His killing was the latest in a series of fatal shootings of politicians and police officers, raising fears about growing insecurity in Uganda.

Mr Kirumira was the former district commander of Buyende, and a video in which he urges people to expose the “mafia to save the state” has been widely circulated on social media since his death:

Speaking on state television, Mr Museveni denounced the killers as cowardly pigs.

He added: There was police in the area… but they said they didn’t hear the gunshots. It is possible they didn’t hear because there is a church nearby and in church, we are always shouting as if God is deaf.”

Mr Museveni vowed that police will fill the security “gaps” that killers were exploiting, and added: The electronic identification of boda bodas would have helped us to identify these people quickly.”
