Heavy Rains, Floods Mar AIGP Kaweesi Burial
Mourners heading to Kitwekyanjovu village in Lwengo district to attend the burial of Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Andrew Felix Kaweesi were this morning hampered by heavy rains that flooded the muddy roads to Lwengo.
Kaweesi was gunned down with his bodyguard CPL. Kenneth Erau and driver Godfrey Mambuwa in Kulambiro, Kampala, on Friday by unknown gunmen who were travelling on two motorcycles.
After a requiem mass at Lubaga Cathedral in Kampala yesterday, his remains were airlifted in a police chopper to his ancestral home in Kitwekyanjovu, Kyazanga sub-county in Lwengo district, where he is set to be laid to rest.
However, currently, hundreds of mourners flocking the area for Kaweesi’s final sendoff are finding it very difficult to reach the burial grounds, because of their cars being submerged in heavy floods.
Our reporters reveal that many of the mourners have decided to abandon their vehicles and walk to Kaweesi’s ancestral burial grounds, although they are scared thugs may vandalise them.
