Uganda Police has placed a Shs 10m bounty on the head of a man suspected to have contributed to the killing of acting assistant Director of Public Prosecutions, Joan Kagezi.
Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, has issued an artists’ impression of “the male suspect wanted by police in connection to the case of murder by shooting of Ms Joan Kagezi, which occurred on Monday march 30, 2015 at a fruit stall near her residence in Kiwatule”.
Police has put a Shs 10m reward for whoever volunteers information leading to his arrest.
Yesterday, six people (including two women) were arrested in Kyengera Wakiso district in connection with the murder of the prosecutor.
Two others were arrested last week.
IGP Gen Kale Kayihura told press that those arrested in Kyengera “are linked to the murder of Joan Kagezi” quickly clarifying that it was still too early to identify them.
He said the suspects had shifted from Kiwatule to Kyaliwajjala and then to Kyengera after the murder and were caught trying to shift again.
Kayihura advised house owners to always ask tenants for their identification particulars before renting them rooms.
Meanwhile, four more men were arrested in Zzana, along Kampala – Entebbe Road for links in Kagezi murder.
One of them as reported by New Vision is Jamal Abdullah Kiyemba, who was captured in Pakistan in 2002 on suspicion of being an Al-Qaeda terrorist.
Others were identified as Ismael Ssendawula, Siraje Serugo and Bashir Nyangisu.
Of recent, gunmen riding on motor cycles have made it a habit to gun down government officials, Muslim leaders and security personnel especially in central and eastern Uganda.
