President Yoweri Museveni has condemned in the strongest terms the killing of (the Assistant Inspector General of Police) Andrew Felix Kaweesi by thugs riding on motorcycles.
As a consequence of these repeated murders in the city and other towns, the President has directed the immediate installation of cameras in all major towns of Uganda and along the highways.
"We have been planning to do this project for some time but we have been postponing it on account of other priorities like the roads and electricity.
Since, however, these thugs think they can use this remaining gap in our otherwise robust security frame work, I have decided and directed the Minister of Finance to work with Police to immediately close this gap," the President said in a statement.
He said the security personnel and all citizens should be vigilant and on the lookout for these thugs who have made it a habit to use motorcycles to kill people.
"Remember the incidents of Joan Kagezi, Major Kigundu and a number of Sheikhs; they were killed in the same manner. If you notice such characters and especially if they are trailing a person with armed guards, you should take prompt action and challenge them," Museveni said.
Unknown gunmen shot Kaweesi, his bodyguard Kenneth Erau and the driver Godfrey Wamewo as they left his home to work in his official car registration number UP 4778.
They were killed in about 100 meters from his gate.
