Uganda Police Spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi have been shot dead.

Assistant Inspector-General Kaweesi and two other police officers were killed on Friday by unknown assailants about 100 metres from his home in Kulambiro, Nakawa Division, Kampala.

3 OFFICERS

Presidential Press Secretary Linda Nabusayi confirmed the incident to the Daily Monitor, a member of the Nation Media Group stable.

“It is true and it’s so sad,” Ms Nabusayi said when asked to confirm whether Mr Kaweesi was one of the three police officers killed in the Friday morning shooting.

It is not yet clear how Kaweesi was killed but Inspector-General of Police Kale Kayihura and other senior security officers have rushed to the scene to ascertain what could have happened.

TAINTED IMAGE

Kaweesi, who also held the position of director human resource, was in August 2016 appointed by IGP Kayihura the special police spokesman as the force attempted to repair its image tainted by a string of brutality case and public relations nightmares.

Mr Kaweesi, whom Gen Kayihura had earlier removed from the Kampala Metropolitan Police command and later from the Directorate of Operations for being “in the media too often”, had been tasked to reclaim the force’s lost public trust.

Kayihura is expected to address the media on the incident.
