A python was on Wednesday shot dead by guard of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s farm in Kisozi, Gomba District just hours before he celebrated his 72nd birthday.

The snake had reportedly sneaked into the farm with the intention of attacking the president’s cattle.
According to Daily Monitor, one of the policemen who preferred not to be named in the story because he’s not authorised to speak to the media, the python was shot thrice at around 10.00am after it turned violent.
“We were terrified by such a huge and dangerous creature and that’s why we had to kill it to secure our lives and protect the ‘big man’s’ cattle. One bullet was shot in in head and other two bullets in the abdomen,” he said.
He added that the snake weighed about 80 kilogrammes and 20 feet in length but by press time, it was still kept in one of the policemen’s shelter in the President’s farm.
