During the requiem mass held at St Stephen’s church Kisugu, more about Kampala on Sunday, Buganda Premier Charles Peter Mayiga called upon police to “improve on the speed of their investigations” and also “explain on the way how the body was transported to Mulago Hospital.”

He added: “Should we say that investigations are as hard as going to space? And even if that’s the case, people have travelled to space – so Police should work hard to provide a report on Kasiwukira’s death to clear the confusion caused by this tragic incident.”

Mayiga later advised police not “to only hold celebrations for 100 but they should focus on accounting for their roles.”

Kasiwukira was knocked dead last Friday as he jogged in Muyenga, a Kampala suburb. Police carried his body on a pickup truck to Mulago Referral Hospital.

Godfrey Kirumira, the chairperson of Bagaga Kwagalana, an association of wealthy businessmen, also expressed his bitterness with “the way Police handled the matters of Kasiwukira’s murder.”

Kirumira charged: “We are not happy with the way how Kasiwukira’s body was handled by Police especially officers who picked it from the scene of crime. How can Police put the body of an investor who has worked a lot for the good of this economy on a patrol pick up which is used to carry murderers and thugs who have been killed and left on the roadsides?”

He also advised Police to speed up investigations and come up with a clear report on the cause of Kasiwukira’s death, saying, “It was not accident.”

Police spokesperson Fred Enanga said the incident which has sent cold shivers down the spine of Kampala dwellers, occurred at around 6:20am on Friday.

“Kasiwukira was found dead a distance of about 300 meters from his home, alongside the road sloping from diplomat zone to Muyenga main road. This was moments after he had left his home at diplomat zone, Muyenga for a morning road run,” said Enanga.

He further elaborated that the police visited the scene and transported the body to Mulago city mortuary for post-mortem analysis.

“The nature of injuries that led to the death of the deceased were grave suggesting the probable involvement of a moving object like a speeding motor vehicle,” he added.

Enanga further revealed that police have set up a “joint investigative team from the homicide and traffic department to gather intelligence and information on the suspect(s) and or a motor vehicle involved.”


He also appealed to the public or any eye witness or persons with information to reach police on telephone numbers: 0715989998 or 0711778265.

However, Kirumira said, “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.”

Canon Ephraim Gensi who presided over the memorial service, appealed to government to boost security personnel in the city to allow people go about their business without any interference.

“I was shocked to hear that our Christian had been murdered. I am wondering if such a thing happened to such a prominent man then what about the poor people out there.”

Canon Gensi praised the late for being supportive to his church especially in the construction department.
