When you attempt to crash into the vice president’s convoy, Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi and also counter-draw a gun at his guards, it will not matter whether you’re the Kamuswaga (cultural leader) of Kooki chiefdom or not.
The arrest won’t be pretty.
Apollo Sansa Kabumbuli, the Kamuswaga of Kooki was arrested on Tuesday by Special Forces Command guards at Kyajubira village near Bukunda trading center along Masaka-Mutukula Highway.
Eye witnesses say trouble started after Kamuswaga, who was driving himself in his official vehicle, refused to give way to Ssekandi’s convoy.
Ssekandi was returning from his campaigns in Kyanamukaka Sub county and was heading to his home in Kizungu zone in Masaka municipality.
Ssekandi’s body guards swung into action and threatened to shoot Kamuswaga prompting him to draw out his gun and point it at the guards, leading to the scuffle.
