Kaweesi’s Murder: Gen. Katumba Calls for Regulation of Bodabodas

State Minister of Works, treatment Gen. Katumba Wamala today joined in the mourning of Police Spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi who was shot dead on Friday morning near his home in Kulambiro.

Gen. Katumba said the country had lost a committed, hardworking police officer who joined the force as new blood.

“I came to know Kaweesi when I was a police chief; he was among the police officers we recruited in the force as a way of implementing the Ssebutinde Report of adding new blood in Police,” Katumba recalled.

“Kaweesi has been one of the person who loves his job so much, he didn’t enter the police as a last resort as other people do, he came in police as a choice made by himself,” Katumba noted.

“His death puts a lot of questions to all of us and more so to the security organs which we believe will be answered by the investigations that have commenced.”

On the continuous use of bodabodas to assassinate high profile Ugandans, Katumba noted that there is need to seriously regulate the bodaboda industry which is being utilized largely by criminals.

“I know there are several deaths that have been executed by people on bodabodas. That brings a big question on whether we continue the way we do business with bodabodas or we refocus on a better way of managing the industry.”

“Yes it is employing many people but it is now being exploited by the wrong guys to end lives, it is a question that we need to examine now.”
