Government Regrets not Finding Joan Kagezi Killers

The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), order Mike Chibita has regretted that government through its investigative bodies has failed to pin down suspects linked to the killing of Senior State Prosecutor, this web Joan Kagezi.

It’s now a year since the 48 year old Joan Kagezi’s life was terminated in cold blood by unknown gunmen traveling on a motorcycle, viagra when she pulled over to buy fruits in Kiwatule a Kampala suburb.

Kagezi was the head of the DPP’s War Crimes and Terrorism Department, which was stationed in Kololo near the High Court’s International Crimes Division.

By the time Kagezi was assassinated, she was charged with handling many cases of terrorism; notable among them the 2010 twin bomb attacks in Kampala by the Alshabaab in which 76 lives were lost.

The DPP told journalists at the Media Centre in Kampala that it was regrettable that one year after the murder of Kagezi, no conclusive findings or arrests have been made.

“Am I comfortable or happy that it has taken one year without the killers of Joan being arrested? Absolutely not and no one else can be happy except the killers themselves,” Chibita noted.

“We have all been saddened, as well as members of the public but what can you do; do you arrest somebody and just frame them. You must therefore take all the necessary steps to find the culprits,” Chibita said.

He however revealed that investigations are still ongoing with positive leads to the assailants.


“We are in touch with Police, as you know it is them that are mandated to conduct investigations, we have got nothing conclusive as of now, but I want to assure the public that there are some leads which are very promising that the police is following up.”

Chibita observed that ever since the murder of Kagezi, police has beefed up security of every prosecutor who was assessed to be on high risk of attack.
