Kaweesi murder Suspects sue Attorney General over Nalufenya police torture

Five out of the many suspects so far arrested in connection with the murder of AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi have dragged the Attorney General to the High court citing torture by police personnel during their detention at Nalufenya police station in Jinja district.

The five led by one Godfrey Musisi Galabuzi claim that on the morning of 23rd/March 2017 police from the Anti-terrorism unit commanded by D/SSP Johnson Olal invaded his home and arrested him, his wife Grace Nankya and three of his workers and drove them to Nalufenya police cells.

That while there, they were accused of participating in the murder of Kaweesi and that his wife was the one cooking food and feeding the alleged killers.

The suspects claim they were promised huge sums of money, beaten up and asked to confess that they murdered Kaweesi.

They also claim they were sprayed with toxic gas which suffocated them and has since affected their sight.

Galabuzi says they spent 30 days in police custody at Nalufenya and that he was approached by one of the interrogators who promised him one billion shillings and freedom if he testified against defence minister Brig. Henry Tumukunde, as the one who procured assassins to murder Kaweesi and General Kale Kayihura; A deal he rejected.

The group is represented by Human Rights Lawyer Ladislaus Rwakafuzi.

Court has given Attorney General 15 days within which to file his defence before the case is fixed for hearing.
