The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Mike Chibita said his office will not rest until the killers of the State Prosecutor, Joan Kagezi are brought to book.

He said although there are many challenges to get the culprits, they will not leave any stone unturned to make sure there is justice.

At the time of her death, Kagezi was prosecuting a high profile case involving 13 terror suspects believed to have been behind the July 2010, twin bombings, in Kampala which claimed 76 lives at Lugogo Rugby grounds and Ethiopian Village, as they watched the World Cup finals.

The killers remain unknown, after three years.

As part of the activities to remember Kagezi, Chibita said they have organised the third Joan Kagezi memorial lecture to take place at Hotel Africana, Nile Hall on April 13, starting 2:00pm.

It is going to be delivered by  the Chief  Crown Prosecutor, Grace Ononiwil, a representative of the DPP of England and Wales under the theme: “Combating International and Transitional Organised Crime; Lessons Learnt and Best Practices”.

Chibita, who was addressing journalists at Uganda Media Centre in Kampala, noted the lecture is aimed at enhancing public awareness on international and transitional organised crimes.

He said the lecture is also aimed at enhancing the knowledge and skills set by law enforcement agencies in the identification, investigation and prosecution of such crimes and best practices from the United Kingdom and other jurisdictions in combating such crimes.
