I Know Joan Kagezi Killer – Museveni

President Museveni has blamed police for the failure to apprehend the killer of Joan Kagezi, Chimp Corps report.

The Senior Principal State Attorney was gunned down in 2015 in Kiwatule, a Kampala suburb, as she returned home from work.

Three years down the road, the suspects have never been brought to book.

Addressing the nation on Sunday, Museveni said he had been “briefed” about the main suspect in Kagezi’s assassination, saying, “He left the country.”

The President further said if police were fast enough, they would have caused the arrest of Kagezi “through Interpol.”

He emphasised: “It is clear that the intelligence has been weak in the cases where the murders have been committed, like in the cases of Kagezi and the others.  This weak area is being strengthened.”

Kagezi’s murder remains mysterious.

In July, Museveni said the rebel Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) were to blame for the murder of Kagezi, AIGP Andrew Kaweesi and Muslim sheikhs.


ChimpReports is yet to identify the main suspect in Kagezi’s murder whom Museveni believes can be repatriated to Uganda for prosecution.

Kagezi was shot dead by men riding a motorcycle. Efforts by then Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura to apprehend the suspects flopped.

But a high placed security official tells us the suspects fled through Kenya where he boarded a plane to the Middle East.

Museveni reassured that urban terrorism would be addressed decisively.

“Like we defeated rural terrorism from Congo without anybody’s support, we shall also defeat the residual urban crime and terrorism whatever the source,” he said.
