Uganda: Authorities arrest former police over spokesman’s killing.

Published

on

Ugandan authorities have arrested a former national police chief on suspicion of killing a senior police official, a state-owned newspaper said on Thursday.

Army general Kale Kayihura, who was sacked as inspector general of police in March, was detained by soldiers on Wednesday over the 2017 killing of police spokesman Andrew Felix Kaweesi, Daily New Vision said.



Uganda’s military said Kayihura was flown to headquarters in Kampala from his home in the country’s west to report to the head of the armed forces, according to a statement.

The statement gave no further details and army spokesman Richard Karemire could not immediately be contacted for comment.

Kaweesi was killed along with his driver and bodyguard near his home in the capital Kampala in March 2017 as they drove to work.

Opposition newspapers Daily Monitor and Red Pepper also reported Kayihura’s arrest, without giving a reason.

The general has been criticised by the opposition and rights activists for what they said was failure to reduce crime levels and a crackdown on opposition rallies, breaking them up with tear gas, beatings and detentions.

President Yoweri Museveni said on Monday the government would implement security measures to reduce crime.

Museveni made the comment at the funeral of ruling party legislator Ibrahim Abiriga, who was shot dead on Friday along with his bodyguard near his Kampala home.

Kenyan Bishop Bags 75 Years Jail Term For Defiling Three Girls

Published

on

A bishop accused of defiling three girls he was living with at an orphanage, infecting one of them with HIV has now sentenced to 75 years in prison.



Kisumu Resident Magistrate Pauline Mbulika found him guilty of three counts of defilement and deliberate transmission of HIV.

Joseph Agutu had promised to sponsor the minors before he started defiling them.

Agutu who hid his face from the cameras as police escorted him out of the solitary cell to Kodiaga Maximum Prison, had maintained his innocence throughout the proceedings.

He was charged with committing the crime against the girls between April and July 2016. One of the girls is aged 14 while two are 15 years old.

The court heard that the accused intentionally committed the crime and deliberately infected one of the minors with HIV.

The accused also reportedly touched the girls inappropriately on various dates between April and July 12, 2016. In addition, Agutu also faced an alternative charge of touching the private parts of the minors.

Four prosecution witnesses pointed an accusing finger to the Bishop with the minors recounting the sexual encounters that the man subjected them to.

One of the minors who is an orphan painfully narrated to the court how the bishop lured her and her grandmother to the trap.

“My grandmother brought me to him and he promised to sponsor my education. My grandmother went back home and left me with him at the church,” said the minor.

After a while, she told the court, the bishop defiled her and called the other girl and defiled them too as she slept on the floor. She said they were crying throughout the ordeal.

The court heard that the following morning the bishop refused to allow them to go to school but instead ordered them to go to church.
