The Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura has dragged to the High Court in Kampala four media houses challenging the ongoing publication of confidential information regarding the investigation into the murder of AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi.
Kaweesi was shot dead alongside his body guard and driver on March 17 2017, by unknown assailants a few metres from his home in Kulambiro, Nakawa Division in Kampala.
Through the Attorney General, Gen.Kayihura wants an injunction against the publication of the stories on Kaweesi by the Red Pepper, The Investigator, Chimp Reports and the Ugandan.
Kayihura says the continued publication of such stories are injurious to Police’s investigation, national security and prejudicial to the workings of the security agencies of Uganda. He wants court to put a permanent injunction restraining the said media houses from publishing stories relating to investigations into the murder of Kaweesi.
