The arrest, police sources say, follow a deep investigation into Kamoga’s mobile communications history with suspected ADF agents.

At least 6 suspects in the murder of Muslim clerics were this week charged at Buganda Road Court with murder and belonging to a terrorist group- ADF.

Police also retrieved incriminating evidence from Kamoga’s associates following arrests in the death of several Muslim leaders in recent weeks.

Sheikh Kamoga, who denied having facilitated the killing of Sheikh Bahiga along Entebbe Road in December 2014, was the Amir of Tabliqs before the 1998 invasion by dissenting Tabliqs and taking over of Old Kampala.

Kamoga fled to Nairobi when his other colleagues, including ADF supreme leader, Jamil Mukulu, were rounded up and taken to Luzira.

He continued pulling the strings from exile but Sheikh Sulaiman Kakeeto, who exploited the vacuum, eventually consolidated power.

MP Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda recently said, “through amnesty and other negotiations, Kamoga returned and joined the late Sheikh Abdul-Hakim Ssekimpi to form a rival Tabliq sect called Salafiyya, headquartered at William Street. It is this William Street Salafiyya group that eventually threw out Kakeeto.

He added: “This group has also now disagreed, leading to the removal of Kamoga. But like Kakeeto, Kamoga has also refused to surrender power. He runs Nakasero mosque and has thrown out his rivals from the William street mosque as well. The late Mustafa Bahiga was the chief coordinator of the group that removed Kamoga and set off a rivalry that is blamed for his murder.”

He owns a Soccer Academy in Jinja, cialis 40mg his ancestral home, called Andy Mwesigwa Soccer Academy and the Cranes Skipper is now constructing another modern sports school in Wakiso.


ChimpSport’s Vicent Kakooza talked briefly to the Ugandan International about the project which he says will have a great deal of impact to national Football once completed.

“Which partners? This is my project and mine alone,” Mwesigwa reluctantly said.
