The inspector of police Gen Kale Kayihura has asked court to stop journalists from reporting on investigations of the slain assistant inspector general of police Andrew Felix Kaweesi.
Kaweesi, alongside his bodyguard and driver were sprayed with bullets as they drove out of his home in Kulambiro for a student engagement at Uganda Christian University Mukono last month.
President Museveni and Gen Kayihura promised to get to the bottom of the matter and bring killers of the high ranking police officer to book.
A month down the road, arrests have been made, but none has been presented to court.
As the public grows anxious over the results of the investigations, there have been reports in the media that showed that security was sluggish in its investigations.
Now the police chief personally wants some of the media houses restrained from publishing on investigations until security does its beat.
Red Pepper, Chimpreports, the Investigator, the Ugandan news websites have been put to alert of the restrain on their publications.
It is not yet clear if the affected media houses are going to challenge the move by the IGP. However, the petition also attached editors of the online publications namely; Giles Muhame (Chimpreports and president of the online media publishers association), Dixon Kagurusi (The Ugandan) and Stanley Ndawula (The Investigator).
