Kampala, (UG): The Minister of Internal Affairs, Gen Kahinda Otafiire has revealed that the report detailing findings on the attempted assassination of City Pastor Aloysius Bugingo will be delayed for an unspecified time.

Otafiire speaking to journalists about the attack which claimed Bugingo’s bodyguard Richard Muhumuza said investigative reports about murders are usually delayed, due to the amount of time needed for the investigation to be done.

The minister therefore expects the report to take at least more than a week before it is ready and brought to his desk.

The minister also questioned the attack on Bugingo, wondering how the killer got to know where the pastor was going to park, and how he was able to attack a vehicle in motion from the front without fear of being knocked.

He therefore urged the police to investigate the matter thoroughly and give him a detailed report, that wasn’t subject to guesswork.
