KAMPALA - The Uganda People's Congress (UPC) has joined the rest of the country to mourn the death of AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi, who was murdered Kaweesi alongside his bodyguard Kenneth Erau and driver Godfrey Mambewo.
The three never made it there.
"UPC sends its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families, the Inspector General of Police and the entire Uganda Police Force."
He said Kaweesi will be remembered for his discipline, professionalism and competence in service and that his departure has left a void that will be hard to fill.
Meanwhile, it has emerged that Kaweesi received an anonymous text message threatening his life two days before his death.
The three policemen have since been buried as investigations continue. A number of arrests have been made in connection with the killings.
IGP Gen. Kale Kayihura said one the suspects was arrested as he was reportedly crossing the border to flee into neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
