ENTEBBE | President Museveni has awarded Abdul Katabaazi the Nalubaale Medal for his bravery in capture of assassins that gunned down Buganda's Ndiga Clan leader Daniel Bbosa.

The award was jointly presented with First Lady and Minister of Education and Sports Janet Kataaha Museveni on Monday during a Cabinet meeting at State House Entebbe

The Nalubaale Medal is awarded by the President to all civilian activists who have contributed to the political development of Uganda, either through armed struggle or civil disobedience, pursuant to Section 3 of the National Honours and Awards Act, 2001.

Katabaazi, a plumber and boda boda operator in Kikandwa Zone, Lungujja, Rubaga Division, pursued and captured the assailants who shot dead Eng Bbosa, the leader of Buganda Kingdom's Endiga Clan on Sunday, February 25.

Eng Bbosa, aged 72, was also the director of Transa Electrical and was shot dead in his car as he approached his home in Kikandwa Zone.

During the meeting, Katabaazi narrated to President Museveni how he, with the help of other boda boda riders, pursued and captured the assassins.

President Museveni commended Katabaazi for his bravery and fight for the noble cause.

“I want to congratulate you; you have done a heroic job. You have now become a bush war fighter like me," Museveni said.

The President further pledged to award and support other boda boda men who participated in the capture of the assassins.
