Former Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura is to be charged with murder of his former Assistant Andrew Felix Kaweesi.
According to security sources that Eagle Online talked to, Gen. Kayihura has been linked to the killing of Assistant Inspector General of Police by suspects who were arrested earlier. However, sources say this is one among a host of charges lined up against him by the state.
Kaweesi was the spokesperson of Uganda Police Force from August 2016 to 2017 until when he was killed in Kulambiro a Kampala suburb by assailants. However, his killing was blamed on ruminants of Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) by Gen. Kayihura.
In a statement released by Uganda Peoples’ Defence Force Spokesperson, Richard Karemire it said Gen. Kayihura is still a serving officer of UPDF and has been staying in Kashagama, Lyantonde district since March 15, 2018
“Yesterday June 12 he was asked to report to the UPDF chief of Defence force Gen. Divide Muhoozi at General headquarters, Mbuya. A helicopter was subsequently dispatched to transport him from there but on arrival, Gen had travelled to Mbarara and so it had to return to Entebbe air force base,” he said in a statement.
