Kaweesi showed a Catholic priest a text message on his cell phone (Kaweesi’s) that read: “I will kill you.”
KAMPALA - It has emerged that two days prior to the assassination of Assistant Inspector General of Police, Andrew Felix Kaweesi, the slain officer met a Catholic priest and confided in him about his fears for his life.
Sources close to the priest say Kaweesi showed him a text message on his cell phone (Kaweesi's) that read: "I will kill you."
The message was sent by a cellphone number which was not registered.
The priest, who took a screenshot of the text message, reportedly wondered why unregistered numbers were still in use.
Kaweesi reportedly told the priest how he had thwarted a fraudulent transaction by a high-ranking police officer.
Kaweesi, 43, was murdered last Friday together with his driver and bodyguard in Kulambiro, Kampala as they were leaving his home headed for work.
He is survived by a widow and children.
The fallen senior policeman was laid to rest at his ancestral home at Kitwekyanjovu village in Kyanzanga, Lwengo district.
Some arrests have been made since then.
