The late Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP), Andrew Felix Kaweesi was this afternoon finally laid to rest at his ancestral home in Lwengo District, four days after he was murdered.
Kaweesi was gunned down on Friday morning together with his body guard and driver.
Kaweesi was given a 21-gun-salute on Tuesday as his body was lowered to the grave, bringing to an end a budding life and policing career cut short by assassins bullets four days ago.
Addressing mourners, the Inspector Gen of Police Kale Kayihura revealed that some suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder and that one of them was intercepted as he tried to escape to DR Congo early today.
“Some people have been saying that Kayihura is sleeping; I am not sleeping; the police force is not sleeping,” he said.
“Even as we speak now, we have arrested some people. In fact this morning one of them was arrested while trying to escape to Congo (DRC).
Meanwhile, state Minister of works Gen. Katumba Wamala urged police officers to emulate Kaweesi whom he described as a man of the people.
The widow, Annet Kaweesi described her late husband as loving husband.
However during the final prayers, it dawned on Aaron Kaweesi that the Casket everyone was pointing at was where his father was. The 4-year-old went under the casket that held his father’s body saying ”I want daddy, daddy is hiding under this thing”
Kaweesi’s youngest son broke hearts of many when he went under the casket trying to look for his dad, indeed it was so heartbreaking many mourners cried, and they felt sorry for the innocent young boy.
To him his father was still alive and he was wondering why he was laid in a casket. He kept calling his dad but in vain.
The Boy had to be pulled away from the case by a relative.
