President Museveni has condemned in the strongest terms the killing of the Assistant Inspector of General of Police Andrew Felix Kaweesi by unknown assailants riding on motorcycles.
As a consequence of these repeated murders in the city and other towns, the President has directed the immediate installation of cameras in all major towns of Uganda and along the highways.
“We have been planning to do this project for some time but we have been postponing it on account of other priorities like the roads and electricity,” says a statement from State House quoting Mr Museveni.
“Since, however, these thugs think they can use this remaining gap in our otherwise robust security frame-work, I have decided and directed the Minister of Finance to work with Police to immediately close this gap.”
The president asked Ugandans to be vigilant.
“Security personnel and all citizens should be vigilant and on the lookout for these thugs who have made it a habit to use motorcycles to kill people.
He noted incidents of Joan Kagezi, Major Kigundu and a number of Sheikhs who were killed in the same manner.
“If you notice such characters and especially if they are trailing a person with armed guards, you should take prompt action and challenge them.”
