Museveni To Hunt Down “Pigs” That Killed Kaweesi All The Way to DRC

President Yoweri Museveni referred to the killers of Felix Kaweesi as Pigs

President Yoweri Museveni on Sunday evening spoke irritably about the heinous murder of Uganda Police spokesperson AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi, pharm promising to “hunt down and kill” whoever was involved in the act.

Museveni was speaking to family members, physician friends and neighbors who gathered at the late police boss’s home in Kulambilo, Nakawa for a vigil.

The body had just been brought in from a requiem mass that was held at St Andrew Lwanga Catholic Church in Kigowa Ntinda.

Museveni who spoke at length at the event expressed confidence that the sprouting type of murders conducted on bodabodas will be defeated like his government did to other problems such as the numerous rebel insurgences.

“If they are coming from Congo like it is suspected, we shall do something about it from there,” said the President

Angrily referring to the killers as pigs, who saw no use in highly trained and able leaders like Kaweesi, Museveni said these would have to pay in blood.

“These pigs don’t see the use of such people. Pigs don’t know useful things; that is what the bible says. They only know worms and sweet potato crumbs. They don’t know valuable people and for that they will pay.

The president added, “You are going to die because you have killed our people for no reason. These are young children: (Kaweesi for instance) had just started building his family,” he added.

“These young and energetic people are running institutions that we have built up in order to strengthen our country.”

Museveni pointed out that Kaweesi was one of the new breed of leaders that the NRM government brought up since its establishment, to run important government institutions.

He said, “In the past, we had people who did not go to school running the institutions, but from 1979, we started recruiting educated people; the likes of Jim Muhwezi and Gen Tinyefuuza who had made it to university. Kaweesi was among those that came later.”

Museveni also spoke at length about government’s efforts to install CCTV cameras across cities and towns which he said have been frustrated by civil servants demanding for salary increases.

The body of Felix Kaweesi, who was gunned down on Friday outside his home, will be prayed for at Lubaga Cathedral tomorrow and laid to rest on Tuesday.
