Gen. Kayihura urged people in communities to be very vigilant, saying  AIGP Kaweesi’s suspected assailants had earlier been seen pretending to repair their motorcycle. He added that police would not rest until all killers on boda bodas are wiped out.

“We know who the motorcycle murderers are and most of them have confessed, it’s only those who killed Joan Kagezi that we have not yet established,” he said and added: “Kaweesi was a sacrifice because the assailants usually said that they will hurt us the most and now we have witnessed it.”
