I condemn in the strongest terms the killing of Assistant Inspector of Police Andrew Felix Kaweesi, Police officers Godfrey Mambewa and Kenneth Erau by thugs riding on motorcycles.
As a consequence of these repeated murders in the city and other towns,
I have directed the immediate installation of cameras in all major towns of Uganda and along the highways.
We have been planning to do this project for some time but we have been postponing it on account of other priorities like roads and electricity.
Since, however, these thugs think they can use this remaining gap in our otherwise robust security frame work, I have decided and directed the Minister of Finance to work with Police to immediately close this gap.
Security personnel and all citizens should be vigilant and on the lookout for these thugs who have made it a habit to use motorcycles to kill people.
Remember the incidents of Joan Kagezi, Major Kiggundu and a number of Sheikhs; they were killed in the same manner. If you notice such characters and especially if they are trailing a person with armed guards, you should take prompt action and challenge them.
I condole with the bereaved families and assure them that government will bring these killers to book.
I also reassure the country that security of person and property of all citizens will be guarded at all costs.
