Opondo, who described the late Kaweesi as a young, well-trained professional and patriotic officer, also had no kind word for his killers
Uganda Media Center is the latest government institution to send out condolence messages to the family of the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP), Andrew Felix Kaweesi, killed by assailants on Friday.
In a statement released on Saturday, media center chief, Ofwono Opondo, said his team commiserates with Kaweesi's immediate family members.
Opondo, who described the late Kaweesi as a young, well-trained professional and patriotic officer, also had no kind word for his killers, saying they will be hunted down and brought to book.
So far Police have not arrested anyone in connection with the brutal death of Kaweesi, orchestrated by a group of criminals ridding on motorbikes.
"We at Media Center have had a chance to work closely with Uganda Police Force (UPF) and Kaweesi being the latest PRO, he has been a close colleague," Opondo said, further describing Kaweesi as a rising star, gallant officer and a gentleman.
But reflecting on the dark days that gripped Uganda in the 70s and 80s when Ugandans lived under terror inspired by the state before they were liberated by freedom fighters in 1986; Opondo said government will not be cowed in its fight against terror.
