Uganda: Police spokesperson receives death threats over Kaweesi motorcycles

The newly appointed Uganda Police Spokesperson, AIGP Asan Kasingye says he is receiving death threats over a story that was published in one of the local newspapers.

Speaking to journalists at the force’s headquarters in Naguru, Mr Kasingye who replaced slain Andrew Felix Kaweesi revealed that a one John Kagimu has been sending him messages threatening his life over a story and pictures in the Bukedde newspaper revealing motorcycles allegedly used in the murder of AIGP Kaweesi.

“I have received threats from telephone number 0782 744915. When I checked it out, it’s registered in Kagimu John’s name. I tried to call back and he refused to pick up,” Mr Kasingye said.

He added that the sender of the messages warned him against parading the motorcycles.

“Why do you put those motorcycles in Bukedde as if they’re the ones that killed omugenzi. Now that they are with the Police, I hope they will not say the same thing about you,” the message reads.

When this reporter tried to call the said number, it was switched off.
