Ugandans Respond to Shooting of Bobi Wine’s Driver Yasin Kawuma

Angry and aggrieved Ugandans have hit social media to mourn the shooting of Yasin Kawuma, a driver of Kyadondo East Constituency Legislator Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.

Kawuma was shot and killed by Police in Arua on Monday evening.

According to Hon. Kyagulanyi, Kawooyaa’s killer bullets were aimed at him but ended hitting the driver.

But Ugandans on social media have come out with divided opinion, some blaming the Police for use of excessive force while others faulted Bobi Wine for being quick to judge the Police.

“So sad that we continue to lose people in a similar manner of the one they’re trying to replace in this election. He is not just a driver, he is a father, brother, Uncle, InL aw to someone out there. Every life matters,” wrote Ian Musiimenta, a Ugandan on Twitter.

Bobi Wine and his crew were in Arua campaigning for independent candidate Kasiano Wadri who is in the race to replace Late Ibrahim Abiriga.

Abiriga was also shot dead a few months back.

“Tragic! And this is at at by-election to replace Ibrahim Abirigira who was assassinated by yet unknown people. Where is this country headed?” wondered another Ugandan on Twitter.

Below, we sample most of the responses.
