KAWEESA MURDER: ASSASINS WORKED ON OPERATION POST

Police have started the hunt for a man who reportedly over-saw the execution of AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi in Kulambiro, Kisaasi in Nakawa Division. The reportedly masculine man, tall, flamboyant security operative was seen by residents observing the execution carried out on Friday morning.

AIGP Kaweesi was killed in cold blood, along with his body guard and driver shortly after leaving his home heading to Mukono.

Residents in the area reportedly saw strange faces after the incident, but could not question them before they all disappeared in thin air. Some intimated that after the incident, the assailants sped off towards Kisaasi trading centre.

Police investigators have reported that a witness who runs a road side kiosk saw strange faces at her kiosk, who pretended to be buying stuff from her. “This man was buying charcoal, but was seemingly not concentrating”. She recorded.

She recounts that after the shots, the same man told them not to make alarms, as it was a power transformer bursting into flames. This man seemed to have been monitoring everything that was going on in the town,” she recounts.

Police has since concluded that this character must have helped the killers act as an observation post-OP.

A Security expert who talked to UTN defined Observation Post as a fixed or temporary feature which can be used by terror groups, soldier to monitor their enemy, target movements to inform their execution plans.
