Kaweesi Murder Suspects Are Linked To The ADF Rebels

The re-arrested suspects in the murder of AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi were taken to police’s special operations base and detention centre, Nalufenya, Jinja as part of a wide investigation into rebel ADF activities in Uganda.

This was revealed by police spokesperson AIGP Asan Kasingye during a press conference in Kampala on Monday.

He was responding to a report by the Uganda Human Rights Commission (UHRC) that accused the Police of illegal handling of the suspects including Ahmed Senfuka who was picked from Nakawa by security operatives.

Kasingye said his officers were never involved in the re-arrest but maintained that this was entirely done by CMI.

“The UHRC released a report blaming security for the re-arrest of four suspects involved in the death of the AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi, insinuating that police must have been involved since the arrest of one of the suspects was done  when traffic officers were around,” said Kasingye.

He said these were traffic officers who were on duty.

“But we want to reecho the statement by the Spokesman of UPDF that the arrest was done by CMI and that the police was not in any way involved in the re-arrest,” he emphasised.

It will be recalled that Nalufenya is mainly used by police personnel to detain suspected hardcore criminals.

Kasingye explained that as is the practice, UPDF released the suspected to police for further management.

“After the arrest on suspicions of being involved in ADF rebel activities, the UPDF handed over the suspects to Police and these suspects as I talk are detained in Nalufenya for further inquiries in the allegations,” said Kasingye.

Defence officials tell ChimpReports ADF elements were involved in the shooting of Kaweesi in March this year.

The ADF Supreme leader, Jamil Mukulu is incarcerated at Luzira Prison on charges of treason, murder and kidnap among others.
