KAWEESI MURDER INVESTIGATION: New Details, Mission To Kill Him Was Coordinated On Conference Calls, 9 Satellite Phones Used

Published

on

The hunt for the assailants who Gunned down former police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi by security agencies has taken a new twist.

Detectives have discovered that besides using heavy guns and ammunition to put Kaweesi out of action, the whole mission was coordinated using nine satellite phones.

According to a source privy to the details of the investigations, Kaweesi’s killers coordinated the plot with all their phones on conference Call.

UN MASKING THE PLOT

Sources have told this website that Kaweesi’s assassination mission was commanded by two big people in security. One of the assailant’s bosses is reported to have been in Wandegeya by the time of the assassination while the other was in Naguru.

Detectives have traced that eight assailants with  Statellite phones were in Kulambiro that day, one in Wandegeya while the other in Naguru.

KAWESI ASSASSINATION DAY

Detectives have also discovered that the satellite phones reportedly used to coordinate the assassination of Kaweesi weren’t switched off at that time until 7pm in the evening.

According to the source, the signals of the said phones indicated that their holders were within Kulambiro, even after security agencies had gathered at the crime scene while others including the late’s personal phone acted as a diversion with tracking signals indicating their movement from the crime scene, Mpererwe, Wandegeya and Naguru.

WHERE ARE THE SAID PHONES

The source told this website that when the assailants switched off the phones on the eve of Kaweesi’s assasination Day , they were re-activated on November 17, 2017, 8 months past the assassination date. They  spent a few hours on and later they were switched off again.

We have also learnt that the assailants again switched on the phones on 30 November 2017, spent 30 minutes active and later switched off again.

It is said that the activation of the phones for the second time happened after several suspects were arrested and moved to Nalufenya detention centre, currently Nlufenya police station after reports started emerging that the assassination of Kaweesi might have been an inside job.

The assailants switched them off completely and it is said that they might have dismantled them for good.

RIP AFANDE KAWEESI

Police mouthpiece Andrew Felix Kaweesi was assassinated with his bodyguard Cpl Kenneth Erawu and driver Mambewa on 17 March 2017 in Kulambiro a few Meters from his home.

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS ON THE ASSASINATION

Why would the car lights be on yet it was morning more over on a brighter day and not over taking? Was this a signal by the driver to the assailants that Kawesi was inside the car.

Why didn’t the driver speed off after the first bullet yet he was experienced enough in driving police vehicles? Was he involved in the mission? What task did he have to do as part of the plan and who hired him?

WHO REALLY KILLED KAWEESI?

During Kale Kayihura’s tenure as the Inspector General of Police, many suspects were arrested, tortured and detained in former Nalufenya detention centre. They were later set free. Since then, security agencies are scratching heads day and night to expose Kaweesi’s real killers and connect the dots between his murder and other similar high profile murders like that of Kagezi and the Muslim Sheikhs.

FINDING NAGIRINYA’S KILLERS: CID Detectives On Late Nagirinya’s Murder Case Interrogate Family Members As CMI Dispatches Deadly Operatives To Hunt For Killers…

Published

on

Top detectives who are on the task of unmasking the assailants who kidnaped and later murdered Maria Nagirinya, a project manager with Community Integrated Development Initiative (CIDI), a non-governmental organization based in Muyenga Kampala and her driver Ronald Kitayimbwa have continued to interrogate her close family members.

Sources in police homicide division have told the Grapevine that among the people who were grilled are those who were with the deceased on the last day when he was kidnapped. It’s should be remembered that on the day she was kidnapped, Nagirinya spent the later hours at the home of Sylvia Nakayenga, commonly known as Maama Vienney in Nalumunye Jomayi Estate in Kyengera town council.

Nakayenga is a city businesswoman and a close friend to Mzee Francis  Lubowa, a seasoned politician and the father to late Nagirinya. Detectives on the investigating team revealed that Nagirinya always visited Nakayenga whenever she wanted to booze and detectives wanted to know whether she told Nakayenga anything before leaving in the late hours.

Lawrence Kitayimbwa’s brother told this reporter that it was Nakayenga who called his brother to go and pick the drunk Nagirinya from her home. When contacted to confirm Lawrence’s statements, Charles Twine the spokesperson of the directorate of Criminal Intelligence Directorate said that the detectives are tirelessly working and they will leave no stone unturned. He confirmed that they have interrogated a number of people including family members but he refused to reveal their names.

Atwine told the Grapevine that if they reveal the names of the people they have interrogated, it will create enmity and divisions among the family members because they will start pointing fingers at each other.

He told us that they are also trying to protect the people who are helping the detectives in investigating the matter because they are all potential witnesses in court and they fear exposing them. When we asked Atwine to confirm our source’s information that the detectives who are investigating this murder have been joined by other from other intelligent agencies like Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI), he said that they are working with a number of combative and non-combative detectives to reach the killers.

Efforts to speak to Brigadier Richard Kalemire were futile since he has been not picking our calls.
