Bundibugyo RDC Pius Mujuzi has been shot in the leg as he walked to his office Monday morning.

The Regional Police Commander, Thomas Kasiimo, said the RDC was mistakenly shot at by security operatives who had taken cover.

The RDC had used a short cut route to access his office and given the security situation in the area. Security operatives mistook him to be a wrong element.

At the time of the incident, the RDC was dressed in civilian but carried a gun.

“The route that he had used to access his office is where we had deployed heavily because it is the point the enemy used to access the police post and the barracks. The RDC carried a gun and officers on duty thought he was part of the attackers,” Kasiimo explained before describing the incident as unfortunate.

He added that the life of the RDC is out of danger describing the injury as minor.
