“We have not been requested to have the body exhumed,” Kasingye said.

“Even if there was something like that, it’s the Interpol headquarters in Lyon, France to write to us not Interpol Pretoria.”

The police mouthpiece said that such a case, all communication and request go through the body’s headquarters in France to the respective country but not between countries directly.

Semwanga died two weeks ago of stroke in Pretoria and was buried on Tuesday in Kayunga.

His death and burial raised debate among members of the public especially on social media that the Rich Gang boss had faked his death.

However according to Kasingye, there wouldn’t be any need of the police in South Africa to write to Uganda to have the deceased’ s body exhumed yet he had  died in the same country.

“They are the ones who sent the body to Uganda .There’s no way they can send a request to have the body exhumed over something that could have been confirmed in South Africa,” Kasingye added.
