Uganda police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi has said they will kill whoever attempts to attack the security operatives in Kasese district.
“We wont allow the attackers to kill more police officers, we shall shoot anyone that tries to attack us.”
Kaweesi who was addressing the press this afternoon at Naguru police headquarters, also said that there is a possibility of the attackers acquiring weapons through Congo.
“The attackers have been building camps but security would always dismantle them. They use guns, IED grenades & spears to attack security personnel”
When asked about what could be the cause of the Unrest region, Kaweesi said that the attacks have a political motive to create a Yiira Republic but this is something that leaders and residents have always rejected as a false accusation.
He however comforted all the people that they are doing every thing possible to see that peace prevails in the area.
“We shall use all the necessary forces available to bring sanity in Kasese, the onus is on the King to cooperate with us.”
According to AIGP Felix Kaweesi‘s report indicates that, 14 police officers and 41 Rwenzori attackers killed, 2 UPDF soldiers injured and have so far arrested 15 key ring leaders. One police vehicle was burnt at a police post but we managed to reorganize our resources.
