Museveni Pledges Support for Families of Kaweesi, Erau and Mambewo

President Yoweri Museveni told mourners at slain police spokerson Andrew Felix Kaweesi’s home that the families of police officers murdered in cold blood at Kisaasi-Kulambiro in Kampala on Friday will be supported.

Museveni on Sunday joined other mourners at Kaweesi’s home in Kulambiro-Kisaasi in Kampala, two days after Kaweesi, his body guard, Corporal Kenneth Erau, and driver, Godfrey Mambewo, were murdered in cold blood Friday morning.

Museveni tasked police chief Kale Kayihura to clean the police which he said had been infiltrated by criminal elements.

 He also vowed to hunt down the assassins.

The president equally assured the bereaved families of support because the slain officers had lost their lives serving their nation.

“I want to pledge, we shall give his [Kaweesi] family all the support that is needed because he has fallen on duty. I want to extend my condolences to the family and to the clan,” he said.

“We shall support these young families in honour of their fathers who have died on duty.”

Kaweesi will be buried on Tuesday in Kitwe-kya-njovu, Kyazanga, in Lwengo district while the other two slain officers will be buried today.
