Hundreds of mourners gathered at Sunday evening at St Andrews Andrew Kaggwa Catholic Church in Ntinda Kigoowa, where the body of slain former police spokesperson AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi laid for prayers and public viewing.

The service attracted numerous officials from both the Central and Buganda Governments, including Prime Minister Charles Peter Mayiga, who said the deceased had died in the place of someone else.

The Premier praised Kaweesi for diligently linking the gap between the police and Buganda Kingdom, and helping in the institution’s activities.

“The IGP handed AIGP Kaweesi to me and he was my contact person on anything to do with security. He helped us in organizing most of our activities,” said Mayiga.

Mr Kaweesi, who served in the police force and shot through the ranks since 2001, was described by his boss IGP Gen Kale Kayihura as difficult to replace.

The police boss, said it would take another generation to get another Kaweesi; one with his resourcefulness and creations.

Quoting US General Douglas McArthur, Kayihura said Kaweesi at the level of AIGP, had reached the equivalent of an army general, and that he was not dead.

“Generals never died; they just fade away,” said the IGP in his short remarks, promising to give a full account tomorrow at the main church service which will be held at Rubaga Cathedral.

“It is good that we talk about celebrating the contributions of our comrade Kaweesi rather than mourning his death,” added the IGP.

“His body isn’t with us but his spirit is, and that is what sustains us as we confront the evil.”

Speaking at the church service, one of Kaweesi’s guardians Vincencio Kityamuweesi, praised the deceased as a very careful and listening person.

Katyamuweesi told mourners that he held Kaweesi’s hand though his youth and paid for his education though A’Level and University.

“I taught him to know God, be helpful to himself and others and also to be cautious of the common good.”

Later after the mass, the body was laid for public viewing before being taken to his home in Kulambilo where President Yoweri Museveni is expected for a vigil.
