Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) is holding five police
officers over their alleged involvement in a string of malefactions.
The officers held include;
Nickson Agasirwe, the former head of the Police Special Operations Unit
at Nalufenya in Jinja district, Joel Aguma, the commandant Professional
Standards Unit (PSU), Alex Tumukunde and Faisal Katende, both operatives
from the Flying Squad Unit and an intelligence officer only identified
Aguma and Agasirwe were detained on Tuesday evening
when they appeared at CMI headquarters for the third time in less than a
month for questioning. The other officers were detained on their first
Police spokesperson, Asan Kasingye declined to
comment on the arrests and referred URN to the army spokesperson. The
army spokesman, Brigadier Richard Kalemire denied knowledge of the
arrests when reached.
According to information obtained by
URN, Aguma is being investigated for allegedly repatriating several
refugees to Rwanda. Agasirwe and the three others are wanted in
connection to the murder of former police spokesperson, Andrew Felix
In 2013, Aguma was implicated in the
kidnapping and illegally extraditing Lt Joel Mutabazi, a former
bodyguard of Rwanda President Paul Kagame leading to his suspension from
the force for two years.
Lt. Mutabazi was kidnapped from Sky
hotel in Naalya, a city suburb where he was living with his family. From
his suspension, Aguma bounced back as the deputy director crime

of the five suspects comes few days after President Museveni reportedly
directed the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to order four police
directors to appear before the Internal Security Organisation (ISO) and
CMI for questioning in relation to a missive authored by Ali Kabanda, a
former police operative.
Kabanda allegedly wrote to the president
implicating the officers for their alleged involvement in dubious deals
including undermining investigations into the murder of Kaweesi and
making wrongfully arrests.
An officer involved in the
investigations told URN on condition of anonymity that plans are
underway to transfer the suspects to Makindye military police barracks.
eight people who were yesterday committed to the High court for trial in
the Andrew Felix Kaweesi murder case lost his cool and insulted Nakawa
grade one magistrate, Noah Sajjabi.
Joshua Kyambadde suddenly started shouting at the top of his voice, denouncing Sajjabi as a “Kafir”.
Kafir is an Arabic word meaning “one who
covers the truth” or “one who covers something”, also translated as
“infidels” or “unbelievers” according to Wikipedia.
Kyambadde, who was standing together
with 22 other co-accused, was astounded when Sajjabi said “Kyambadde
together with seven others murdered the former police spokesman and
assistant inspector general of police in Kulambiro.”
He raised his voice, babbling a lot of
incoherent things. The magistrate calmly asked him to behave himself and
tried to inform him that at this stage he isn’t allowed to say anything
but the suspect kept on.
“I have never been to Kulambiro,” Kyambadde started.
His Muslim tunic swishing about as he
gestured in anger, Kyambadde shot back: “This government is nothing,
this is just life; we shall all die! I have never killed Kaweesi, this
is all government, God will judge you.”
Taken aback, Sajjabi ordered prison warders to take him out of court. Kyambadde unleashed another torrent.
“God is going to judge you! All of you, God is going to judge you!” he shouted while being led away with his hands now shackled.
“You kafir, you kafir, Allah Akbar (God
is great),” he said. The charges were later read to him in Sajjabi’s
chambers amid tight security.
The magistrate indicated that out of the
22 people who have been charged with killing Kaweesi, eight were
committed to the High court for trial.
They include: Abdu Rashid Mbazira
Buyondo Muhammed, Aramazan Higenyi Noordin aka Taata Abdallazack ,
Mugerwa Yusuf aka Wilson, Bruhan Balyejusa aka Masiga Jimmy Ogutu,
Kyambadde, Jibril Kalyango, Abu Aisha, Yusuf Nyanzi Siraje aka
Ssentamu Jimmy and Shafiq Kasujja.
According to the DPP, the accused
committed acts of terrorism when for political or religious reasons they
involved themselves in or were complicit in the murder of Kaweesi on
They are also charged with murdering
Kaweesi, his bodyguard Kenneth Erau and driver Godfrey Wambewa. Charges
of robbery have also been brought against them in respect to the robbing
of Kaweesi’s pistol and the escort’s SMG rifle at gunpoint.
According to a summary of the evidence,
police investigations led to the arrest of Mbazira. The DPP alleges
Mbazira revealed that he was involved in the planning and execution of
the murder. Mbazira is said to have identified some of his accomplices
as Higenyi, Mugerwa, Balyejusa, Kyambadde, Kalyango, Nyanzi, Siraje and
Mbazira, according to the DPP, revealed
that the assassination of Kaweesi was ordered by the rebel Allied
Democratic Forces (ADF), a terrorist organisation.
Mbazira allegedly revealed that ADF plotted to assassinate top government officials and that Kaweesi was one of their targets.
Upon obtaining information from Mbazira,
the DPP says, police tracked down his accomplices. Higenyi was arrested
on March 21, in Kasese aboard a bus en route to Mpondwe, which the DPP
says is a notorious crossing point for ADF rebels and recruits into DR
“He was in the company of a young boy
and upon search, he was found in possession of a forged a national ID
card which he revealed was made for him by accused eight (Kasujja),” the
The DPP says it was established that the
juvenile Higenyi was being transported to DRC to join the rebels.
Police arrested Kasujja from the home of Balyejusa and interviewed him.
Kasujja allegedly led the police to his
workplace on Nasser road in Kampala where the DPP says a computer
containing digital images of forged national IDs were recovered.
Kyambadde is also alleged to have been
present during a meeting where Kaweesi’s murder was decided and assigned
the role of reconnaissance at the deceased’s home.
In respect to the 14 who were not
committed to High court, Sajjabi said he will convene a court session
next week to hear prayers to have them discharged.
widening Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence investigation into police
has claimed more scalps of senior officers, sending a huge panic wave
within the force’s rank and file.
As the dragnet spreads, six officers
have been placed under lock and key at Makindye maximum security
military police facility on the outskirts of central Kampala, sources
By yesterday, insider sources said CMI
and Internal Security Organisation agents had been dispatched to the
notorious Nalufenya police station in Jinja to arrest yet another senior
police officer there.
Other operatives were almost
simultaneously on board a flight to Algeria to retrieve Joseph Baroza, a
former assistant to Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura.
Baroza is presently a police liaison
officer at Uganda’s mission there assigned with monitoring, informing
and implementing exchange programmes on African Police Cooperation
Mechanism (Afripol) such as trainings, visits and others.
Herbert Muhangi, the commandant of the
Flying Squad, a unit dedicated to combatting violent crime, was
according to sources, interrogated but later released. Muhangi neither
picked nor returned our calls yesterday.
Senior Commissioner of Police Joel
Aguma, the commandant of the police Professional Standards Unit; Senior
Superintendent of Police Nixon Agasirwe, the former special operations
unit boss at Nalufenya in Jinja district; Faisal Katende, an operative
in the flying squad; Assistant Superintendent of Police Magada (crime
intelligence); AIP Mpambuzo, Sgt Abel Tumukunde, the Kampala
Metropolitan Police flying squad commander, and Ali Kabanda, a flying
squad operative, are being held at Makindye Military Police Barracks.
Agasirwe, Baroza and Katende are
reportedly suspects in the aggravated robbery and murder of an Eritrean
businessman. Deniel Weldo was killed in cold blood in December 2016. His
killers then tried to steal two million euros (Shs 8bn) from his
account operated in Stanbic bank.
The 32-year-old man had operated his
business from South Sudan. He left that troubled country for Uganda
after renewed armed conflict broke out between forces loyal to President
Salva Kiir and his former first Vice president Riek Machar.
Aguma is being investigated for
allegedly engaging in subversive acts, including colluding with foreign
security agents to abduct and forcibly return Rwandan political asylum
seekers/refugees to Rwanda.
According to insider police sources,
these dark dealings came to light when former flying squad operator Ali
Kabanda reportedly fell out with colleagues. He started telling all and
sundry that his life was in danger. Sources say that Kabanda took to
social media to highlight these alleged threats to his life.
Soon, CMI reportedly took interest in
his case and approached him. Military intelligence offered to protect
him in exchange for what he knew.
Kabanda allegedly blew the lid on how a
Rwandan double agent, who had spied on both Uganda and Rwanda, was
eliminated. Kabanda’s information was that this double agent picked
information on Uganda and fed through channels that purportedly ended at
the desk of Rwandan President Paul Kagame and vice versa.
The agent, sources say, was known in
well-placed political and intelligence circles in Uganda. But he was
killed on Ugandan soil and his body dumped in Kisoro district, which
borders Rwanda not long after Kigali learnt he was double dealing.
According to Kabanda, the killing was done by top Ugandan police operatives at the urging of their Rwandan counterparts.
When President Museveni learnt of the agent’s death years ago, he assumed the Rwandans had done the hatchet job.
But years later, Kabanda was singing a
completely different tune about that death. When CMI got this useful
information, they passed it on to the president. The president
reportedly invited police chief Kale Kayihura and asked whether he knew
that his officers were accused of bumping off the spy.
Kayihura, sources said, promised to
investigate. But CMI again advised the president that Kayihura might not
be a reliable investigator as he is part and parcel of the very police
now under suspicion.
On second thought, the president asked Kayihura to drop the investigation. He later asked CMI and ISO to investigate.
As the investigation widened, more
aspects cropped up, including the forced repatriation of Rwandese
nationals (some of them on the run from Kigali security) and the murder
of the Eritrean.
All these crimes reportedly pointed at
senior police officers. As CMI tightens the noose, police officers are
in a state of panic.
Interviewed, several police officers, who declined to be named, said yesterday they don’t know who will be picked next.
“We don’t know what is going on in
police now. Most of the officers have been picked by CMI and arrested
without clear charges. We don’t know how and where they are detained. We
are living in fear because we don’t know who will be picked next…,” a
One officer said if CMI operatives turn up at his gate without clear charges, he will fight them.
“The moment I see them, I will first let
my dogs attack them before firing at them. They shouldn’t arrest us
anyhow over unexplained issues,” the officer said.
Another officer said most police
officers have been arrested by plainclothes soldiers and taken to
unknown places where they could have been tortured.
“We are hearing rumours that the
arrested officers were investigated for many cases including murders,
business deals that went wrong, robberies and issues of deportation of
Rwandese and South Sudanese refugees,” a source said.
Police spokesperson Asan Kasingye
confirmed the arrests yesterday and said senior police staff are rattled
because army personnel are not explaining why they are arresting these
individuals, and where they are holding them.
“They are just picking people; we don’t
know what they are investigating and where they are taking them. We
also don’t know how many they need. Let CMI and UPDF explain why they
are arresting police officers and on what charges…,” Kasingye said at
the police headquarters.
UPDF spokesperson Brig Richard Karemire
didn’t pick his phone calls but has been quoted elsewhere saying the
army is not holding any police officer.
Col Frank Bagyenda Kaka, the ISO boss, didn’t give away much when interviewed yesterday.
“In fact we shall arrest you. You are
interrupting our investigations. It’s not right when we are
investigating such sensitive issues and you put them in papers. You are
not doing good service to the public,” he said.
