How Police Mismanaged Kasiwukira Crime Scene

Uganda Police Force have apologized for failure to manage the crime scene where the late city tycoon Eria Sebunya Bugembe alias Kasiwukira is suspected to have been intentionally knocked to death as he left home for his routine early morning jog.

Police spokesperson, and Fred Enanga has told journalists in a press conference at the Central Police Station in Kampala that the manner in which the first police officers at the scene responded to the incident is regrettable which will give police hard time to gather enough evidence in the investigations.

“Police failed to manage the scene of crime by failing to ensure that the place is condoned off but rather left people to even reach the extent of touching the body of the deceased, story ” Enanga lamented.

Enanga further apologized for the manner in which the body of such a prominent rich man put on a pick-up and later transported to the hospital for postmortem.

“The manner in which Kasiwukira’s body was handled was so unprofessional during this era but we promise this will never happen again, information pills ” Enanga said.

He however noted that due to several sentiments and different reactions from the crowd that had gathered, police was forced to put the body to the unauthorized means of transporting dead bodies.

Enanga however revealed that the scene has been reconstructed to establish the original picture of how the body was found dead which he believes will help during the investigations.

He added that police had deployed a very experienced team of investigators led by the Deputy Director of Criminal Investigations, Commissioner Geofrey Musana to handle the case.


On the same note, Enanga noted that Police Standards Unit (PSU) had been tasked to investigate the police officers that failed to manage the scene of the crime professionally despite arriving in time.

“These include the VIP police unite in Muyenga, the traffic officers that were involved and the Homicide unite.”

Enanga continued to caution the public against tampering with crime scenes so as to enable police always to do a smooth work in gathering evidence.
