High Court halts publication of Kaweesi stories until August

The scene soon after Kaweesi had been killed in cold blood.

Kampala High Court’s Assistant Registrar Joy Kabagye Bahinguza has issued an injunction temporarily stopping the media from publishing stories regarding the investigations into the murder of AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi.

This follows a case filed by Uganda’s Inspector General of Police Gen.Edward Kale Kayihura through the Attorney General, against Red Pepper, The Investigator, Chimp Reports and The Investigator.

Kayihura accuses the defendants of  publishing confidential information relating to the said investigation of the late senior police officer,  and the security of Uganda without permission from Police.

Kayihura contends that the publications are injurious to their investigation, national  security and prejudicial to the workings of the security agencies of Uganda,  to which he wants the media  permanently restrained.

The injunction will be in force until August 21, 2017 when the main suit will be heard before Justice Stephen Musota.

Kaweesi was killed in cold blood

Kaweesi who was the director of human resource development and training in Uganda police was shot dead  on March 17 2017, by unknown assailants about 100 metres from his home in Kulambiro, Nakawa Division in Kampala.

He was killed along with his body guard, Kenneth Erau and driver Godfrey Wambewo.
