Contrary to earlier reports that Police and other security agencies have apprehended a number of suspects, TrumpetNews has established that only 4 are in custody.
A high ranking police officer who wished to remain unnamed because of the sensitivity of matter said that after the tragedy incident on Friday in Kulambiro a Kampala suburb, security arrested a police officer who returned to the crime scene and started correcting fallen officer Andrew Felix Kaweesi’ blood samples.
“Normally these assailants comeback to the scene to ascertain whether their identities have been busted, if they made a mistake in executing their mission or they successfully completed the job,” the officer said.
Adding that on Saturday another suspect was arrested in Kisasi, the neighbouring township where Kaweesi was murdered from.
The other two suspects Aramanzani Higenyi and Andrew Kwesiga who were arrested yesterday.
This development comes high on heels of IGP Kale Kayihura’s revelations yesterday while sending off Late Kaweesi at his native village in Lwengo that Police had previously arrested many suspects and as he spoke another one had been intercepted trying to cross Congo border.
Kayihura has been criticised for failing to bust a cell of these assailants hired to terrorise and murder Ugandans.
Kayihura, however, revealed that security knows the killer who assassinated a government official Joan Kagezi two years ago but “we are tracking him down. Any time he will face the law.”
The assassination of Kaweesi, his driver Godfrey Mambewa and bodyguard Erau Kenneth bears hallmarks of previous murders.
This therefore compels the public to conclude that these are trained killers within the security circles.
Asked to substantiate about the matter, Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) spokesman Emilian Kayima was yet to respond to us by the time of filing this report.
Yesterday police issued another composite image for the third suspected killer.
