Police And UPDF Mismanaged Tourists’ Murder Scene – Museveni

President Yoweri Museveni has spoken out on how he was forced to personally coordinate and hunt for terrorists who were involved in the recent murder of two foreign tourists in Kasese.

This is after the police and military botched the initial part of the investigation.

The scene itself was clear because it is grassland, but initially, they mismanaged the work. They came to the scene to trace the suspects using just their eyes instead of bringing a police dog,” said Museveni on Wednesday.

Then they piled at the scene just to gaze at it and ended up contaminating it.”

When he heard about this, Museveni says he called the team at the scene the following morning. He started passing down instructions including to bring in the police dogs.

Imagine a man from Kampala is now the one ringing people on the ground!” he said.

Finally, they brought a police dog which followed the assailants for 15km. It got tired and sat down, and they did not have another dog.

Museveni says if the detectives had handled the scene properly, all the suspects would have been apprehended in a matter of hours.

About two weeks after the October 17th murder of the two British tourists who were honeymooning in Queen Elizabeth National Park, and their driver; the UPDF arrested Abdu Rashid Njovu.

They said he was the commander of the squad involved in the attack. Three other squad members were killed in a fire exchange.
