Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura today paid a moving tribute to murdered Police Operations Director and Spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi, http://covintec.cl/wp-content/plugins/gravityforms/form_list.php who he said introduced him to the police force.

Kaweesi, http://centerforblackbelt.org/wp-includes/date.php who was gunned down a short distance from his house in Kulambiro on Friday morning, http://currencyaffairs.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-press-this.php had served in the police since 2001; about 5 years before the IGP Kale Kayihura was handed the police mantle in November 2005.

Gen Kayihura was brought in from the UPDF to take over from Gen Edward Katumba Wamala, who on the other hand proceeded to become the Chief of Defense Forces of the UPDF.

During his 20 minute speech at the requiem mass of the fallen officer at Rubaga Cathedral, Gen Kayihura, recalled that when he had just been appointed IGP, he had a difficult time mingling with the police officers, owing to his lack of experience in the police force.

“When I was given thus responsibility, I felt like a UFO because I had never interacted with the police,’ Kayihura told mourners.

Kayihura says in these challenging times, he couldn’t quickly establish rapport with his officers, and that many of them decided to give him a silence treatment, every time he spoke to them.

“However, in the meetings I suddenly noticed an officer who was always challenging me. The rest always kept quite but Kaweesi challenged me. He wouldn’t do so unpleasantly. I therefore decided that this man could help me fit in the police.”

Because Kaweesi was knowledgeable and positive, Kayihura says he immediately made him his personal assistant.

“From 2006 to 2009 he really helped me establish myself in the police force and that was the time you remember when hell broke loose when the country introduced the multiparty system and everyone was free to do anything.”

More on the IGP’s tribute will follow shortly.
