Muslims mourn Kaweesi, ask for operation against illegal guns


Muslim leaders have asked government to institute a special operation against illegal guns across the country, following the gruesome murder of police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi.

He was yesterday shot by unknown assailants who were riding on motorcycles a few meters from his home in Kulambiro, a Kampala suburb together with his body guard and a driver.

Addressing believers at the Nakasero Mosque, Sheikh Siraje Kifampa Nsambu, the spokesperson of the Tabliq Muslim sect has sent condolences to the deceased’s family and government for losing a senior police officer.

He however says that unless government moves to get rid of the illegal guns across the country more lives are bound to be lost in such a gruesome manner.

Some of the victims of such murders include Chief Prosecutor Joan Kagezi Maj Muhammad Kiggundu and Sheihks Abdul Karim Ssentamu, Dr. Abdul Kadhir Muwaya, Mustafa Bahiga and Ibrahim Hassan Kirya.
