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.

Kapchorwa Bus Death Toll rises To 21

Published

on

Residents stare at the wreckage of the minibus.

Two more people have died from wounds as a result of Yesterday’s bus accident in Kapchorwa District in eastern Uganda which claimed 19  bringing the death toll to 21.

“The death toll has increased to 21 from 19. The two victims who were rushed to Mbale hospital died this morning,” police tweeted on Wednesday.

The accident happened at about 6pm Tuesday, a loud bang, splintering glasses and a strange whirring of a vehicle engine sent echoes across Towei hill in Kongowo Village, Kongowo Parish in Kapsinda Sub-county in Kapchorwa District.
The residents knew something tragic had befallen them again. True to their fears, some 19 lives had been lost in the accident after the bus they were travelling in rolled over four times on the Kapchorwa-Mbale highway.

The 200-metre steep slope, an infamous black spot, lies only a kilometre away from Sipi Falls.
At the scene, a mangled minibus lay in the middle of the tarmac, blocking traffic on either side of the road. Bodies of some of the victims were picked from the drainage as police and residents cut through the bus wreckage to retrieve some people trapped in what remained of the bus.

The bus belonging to Kiryandongo Technical Institute was carrying staff members of National Cooperative Business Association, a non-governmental organisation supported by the United States of America, operating in Masindi and Kiryandongo districts.
Police said the bus was heading to Mbale Town from the popular Sipi Falls, where the occupants had gone for tour.

The Sipi region police spokesperson, Mr Rogers Taitika, said although they were still investigating the incident, preliminary findings indicated the driver lost control of the bus due to brake failure.
“The bus was carrying 25 staff. Twenty have been confirmed dead so far but we are still counting,” he said, adding that the travellers had gone to tour the spectacular Sipi Falls after the end of their three-day workshop at Wash and Wills Hotel in Mbale

Mr John Masanga, a witness, said the driver of the minibus was not speeding when the accident occurred.

“The driver tried to negotiate the corner but failed,” Mr Masanga said.
Mr Taitika said the injured were admitted to Kapchorwa Hospital and Muyembe Health Centre 1V in critical condition.
He said the identities of the deceased had not yet been established. However, a witness, Milton Erimia, said two tour guides – both residents of Kapchorwa – Rajab, 17, and Mande, 23, had also perished in the accident.

A business card that a witness, only identified as Yoxy, picked from the accident scene was of Moses Nyipir. It showed that he worked as a youth entrepreneurship adviser, Kiryandongo, for the National Cooperative Business Association.

The bodies of the deceased were taken to Kapchorwa and Bulambuli mortuaries.
Police and a section of residents yesterday said many drivers who are not familiar with the hilly and treacherous terrain of Kapchorwa find difficulty.
