There was gunfire exchange on Tuesday between soldiers under the Special Forces Command-SFC and the Royal guard of Rwoth Rosette Sanders, the Queen Mother of Alur Chiefdom.

The incident happened at Nakiwogo close to Entebbe State House and Uganda Virus Research Institute. 

Richard Kasozi, an eye witness says the gunshots started the drunken royal guard only identified as Otim fired at people in the vicinity.     

“Residents called Police for rescue but it didn’t turn until SFC soldiers from state house responded to save some of the occupants from being shot. The soldiers shot the guard so as to disarm him,” he said.  

The SFC officers shot Otim in the waist and rushed him to Nsamize hospital treatment. Otim is believed to have resorted to drinking after receiving his payment on Monday night.
