Police: Kasiwukira Murder Probe in ‘Advanced Stages’

Detectives are not leaving any stone unturned in the extensive probe of circumstances under which city businessman Eria Sebunya Bugembe alias Kasiwuukira was murdered this month.

In an exclusive interview with ChimpReports, information pills police spokesperson Fred Enanga stressed that detectives have engaged family members and have recorded statements as part of the investigations into the eyebrow-raising incident.

“Our intelligence sources are on the ground in a bid to gather all the required information regarding this incident but as of now we are working tirelessly to recover the vehicle as part of the efforts to get credible information leading to arrest of the suspects, story ” Enanga explained.

Police recently reconstructed the blood-spattered scene where Kasiwukira was crushed dead by a motor vehicle moments after embarking on his routine morning job in Muyenga, a leafy Kampala suburb.

Chimpreports understands Police highly suspect that Kasiwukira was murdered.

Sources told this website that family members have since expressed concern over police’s failure to arrest suspects in the murder that sent shivers down the spine of the Ugandan business community.

Business leaders in Kampala also complained about the manner in which police were investigating the incident.

Speaking at the deceased’s memorial service in Muyenga, Godfrey Kirumira, the chairperson of Bagaga Kwagalana, said Police should speed up investigations and come up with a clear report on the cause of Kasiwukira’s death, saying, “It was not accident.”


“Police have been putting up rewards for people who help to identify criminals but are yet to do so on this case. Why?  As members of Kwagalana group we shall not sit back but announce a big reward for any person who leads to the arrest of people involved in this murder.”

The group has since raised Shs15M as a bounty for any person who provides information leading the arrest of Kasiwukira’s murderers.

However, Enanga explains that Police will soon get to the bottom of the matter.

“This is a puzzle and we are putting the pieces together and expanding our area of investigation until we get to identification of the culprits,” he told this website in an interview on Friday.

“Police would like to once again assure the family, close and business associates, as well as residents of a very thorough investigation that will bring justice to the late Eriya Bugembe Ssebunya’s death.”
