Richard Todwong In Shooting Incident Along Kampala- Gulu Highway

Mr Richard Todwong

NRM Deputy Secretary General Richard Todwong has  reportedly been injured on the leg in a shooting incident along the Kampala- Gulu highway.

Todwong was reportedly travelling Saturday night from Kampala to Gulu when the incident happened at a yet to be identified location.  He was briefly at the privately owned Gulu Independent Hospital  for treatment before being evacuated Sunday morning  using a military helicopter. The chopper, a source says landed at the Gulu military barracks where Todwong was picked by his brother Major Gen Charles Otema Awany, the commander of the Reserve Forces.

It is still unclear what exactly happened that led to the injury on Todwong’s leg. But  sources  say Todwong met a ”rowdy crowd” along the road and pulled out his pistol. What happened after that– resulting into an injury on the leg  of the NRM Deputy Secretary General is unclear–leading to speculation he could have mishandled the pistol and  accidentally shot his leg.
