Police are almost done with the investigations into the brutal murder of Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP), Andrew Felix Kaweesi. Police Spokesperson, Asan Kasingye, says they are only left with a few things and will soon issue a detail report into the murder.

“We will come out soon with a thorough report on the masterminds of the murder and the assailants,” Kasingye told Journalists at the Police headquarters in Naguru on Good Friday. Kaweesi was gunned down by unidentified assailants riding on motorcycles together with his bodyguard Kenneth Erau and driver Godfrey Mambewo on March 17th in Kulambiro in Nakawa Division, Kampala.

The former police spokesperson had left his home on his way to Uganda Christian University in Mukono where he was scheduled to address students jointly with the Uganda Prisons Spokesperson and their UPDF Spokesperson.

According to Kasingye, they are holding more than forty suspects in connection to murder, two of whom believed to be the actual killers. Most of the suspects were arrested because of their suspicious behavior or due to their close resemblance to the three composite images released shortly after Kaweesi’s murder.

They have been under interrogation for the last three weeks. The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kale Kayihura, says Kaweesi’s murder was planned on phone. “We know that phones were used to plan in the murder of Kaweesi and we are looking into the numbers and the phones,” Kayihura said.

The ballistic report released by the Police Forensic Department show that trio was killed using an M6 and AK47 riffle.
