Polluted Police? Slain Sheik Muwaya’s Family Accuses Gen. Kayihura, Top Cops of Aiding their Father’s Property Grabbing – The Investigator
IGANGA, Mayuge, Uganda: After several media reports about the wrangles amongst the butchered Sheik Ductoor Muwaya’s family over property visa Vis counter reports to the contrary, the aggrieved party have resolved to own the public complaints against their ‘administrator’ and brother, Bongo Omar Ductoor by selecting one of them to release a public statement. Below is the dossier. Read on…
“Being an LC V Chairperson of Mayuge District, one would think that it is enough. However, it’s not the case for my brother Omar Bongo Ductoor. After Papa, Sheik Ductoor Muwaya’s death on the 25th of December 2014th, things changed.
As we were filled with too much grief wondering how our lives would go on without our beloved father, Bongo was busy calculating how he would steal the family fortune. I, Nakato Zeinab, happened to have witnessed my father being ruthlessly assassinated on that fateful night. I was torn apart and nearly endangered my life as I saw my father succumbing to the bullets that rained down on him.
“These people must pay,” is what I mumbled to myself. To my dismay, later, my siblings, mother and I were also implicated in Papa’s death. Bongo, who at the moment is the family’s self-imposed administrator, wanted me to lie for reasons I did not understand. He and one of my sisters, Fatwinah, kept on insisting that I lie to both the IGP and the President concerning the occurrence I had witnessed.
As children, our main interest would be to look for the assassins and ensure that they faced the law. But that wasn’t Bongo’s aim. This turn brought friction between his side and my mother’s side.
He chased my mother, Mariam Ductoor, who nurtured him and his four siblings after their mother’s death in 1994 (may her soul Rest in Peace). He chased us all from home and refused to pay fees claiming that we had taken part in Papa’s death. But then again, we realized it was a technique to sideline my mom and us from getting anything.
To Bongo, everyone he hated had participated in the callous murder; my uncle Ishaq Muwawa, was mercilessly implicated and detained for six months before he was released without a charge to his name. My mother was too, falsely implicated, I was dragged on board, the Supreme was dragged in too and everyone in favor of justice was branded a suspected killer!
Now we want Bongo to elaborate who really killed our dear Dad because as far as we know, the real culprits confessed to the boisterous act. I, being the main witness, pinpointed the man with the physique I saw and he indeed confessed. He claimed that he had also seen me and had wanted to shoot me too.
Later in 2015, we heard that my brother, Bongo, the LC V chairman of Mayuge, had received the letters of administration. We tried approaching him but since he was given the SFC guards, he just told them to trash us because to him, we were not his siblings and my mother was not the deceased’s wife. This in turn forced us to open up a case in Jinja court which is still ongoing.
We also opened up a case at Central Police Station Kampala under the file number…. after realizing that he had forged our signatures at the administrator’s office, claiming we were abroad studying and that my mother was abroad on treatment yet it was the IGP, Gen. Kale Kayihura who had helped with her kidney sickness treatment. As though that wasn’t enough, Bongo went ahead and changed most of the Late’s cars into his names right after Papa’s death.
I, as one of the aggrieved daughters of the late Ductoor Muwaya, am concerned. Bongo and his Bush lawyers, Masagazi, a one UPDF officer Ramathan Mugaya and Bashir Kibira, the area LC I Chairperson have joined forces to leave us with nothing. Even the people that are willing to help us are having their lives threatened every time.
Our main witness, Sharif Mugerwa, was recently forced into a meeting by Bongo, the leader of Shia Group and his right-hand man Masagazi, and threatened to make him disappear if he ever testified or helped us. My grandfather also fears for his life as Bongo also threatened him after he attended court on 20th February 2017 in Jinja, trying to help us – his oppressed grandchildren.
My mother has also tried to seek the IGP who had promised to help her till the end but is now nowhere to be seen. Every time she tries to reach out to him, the PA, Jonathan Baroza and his Secretary, Christine, inform her that her son, Omar Bongo, has already been there ‘for us.’
This honestly made me question whether what Bongo claims is indeed true because according to him, the IGP, Kale Kayihura, is his ‘buddy’ and supports him in everything he does. She again rushed to Kibuli CIID Headquarters where she met the Director, Grace Akullo who told her that it was only the IGP or the President who could help out.
But she lost all hope when she (Akullo) confessed to her that Bongo was her personal friend and the best she could do was give him a call. She then persisted and requested to see the IGP but all was in vain. As of today, my mother is still waiting for the Director of CIID to call her as she had promised.
My brother Bongo has in turn decided to use his so called SFC Body guards to do all the dirty work for him. Masagazi, the UPDF officer called me with threats because we had opened up the case at Jinja Court. Mark, his chief body guard turned out to be a muko (Brother in law) through one of Bongo’s sisters, Fatwinah. In return, Mark does the un-called for favors for his muko, Bongo.
Being an SFC, Mark goes on abusing his powers, threatening us whenever he wishes. We call on police to come clean off him or prove our curiosity.”March 17, 2017 at 7:03 pm #542March 17, 2017 at 7:06 pm #543

Andrew Felix Kaweesi loved and hated within Police
He was one of the two youngest directors of police having joined in police 2001 together with Grace Akullo, another ‘young blood’ and maybe the most ‘hated’ commander in the Uganda Police Force.
At the age of 43, Kaweesi was only left to attain the rank of Inspector General of Police (IGP) having served in all the most important positions in the police structure and a favourite of his boss Gen Kale Kayihura as well as President Museveni.
Kaweesi, a hardworking and eloquent police commander was influential in the police as well as the business and political arena. But, that influence did not come cheaply; it came at the expense of personal relations with seniors and juniors in the police force.
Barely a day after his demise, some senior commanders in police speak with mixed feelings about his death. They are partly sad, but also equally speak with a sigh of relief. Kaweesi, his body guard and driver were brutally shot and killed yesterday a few metres from his home in Kulambiro in Kisaasi a Kampala suburb.
“Kaweesi’s assassination was terrifying, it brought a shiver all over my body but it’s the way he died that is sad, one of the directors told URN on condition of anonymity.
He added. “You cannot imagine how many feet he had to step on to attain what he had. Kaweesi cared about nothing else apart from money and power. He was willing to go to any length to attain what he wanted.”
But the fight with Kaweesi was mainly a battle for control of the business empires around Kampala. Some senior officers within the force developed misunderstandings with Kaweesi when in 2011, he was appointed the Director in charge Kampala Metropolitan policing area which covers; Kampala, Mukono, Wakiso, Gayaza and Entebbe.
URN has learnt that during the time, a number of business empires approached him seeking his protection. Subsequently, a monthly protection fee was imposed for the service and payments were made directly to him and sometimes through his personal assistants.
“Even when he left his position in Kampala Metropolitan and Operations, he still collected this money from the businesses,” another director who has been in one of the offices Kaweesi moved from said.
“You can imagine going to a place like the Lufula, and they tell you they have talked to Kaweesi, yet crimes are being committed there,” he added.
Kaweesi was also among the richest police officers in the country, a fact he reportedly constantly threw in the face of the other commanders – even his seniors. URN has learnt that Kaweesi had scheduled to take his children to Walt Disney World Resort, an entertainment complex in Florida for holiday mid this year.

The above, however were not the only reasons Kaweesi was passionately ‘hated’ by a number of officers in police. A source within police told URN that Kaweesi believed in the principle of divide and rule, and that was the way he commanded his juniors, creating loyalists who were willing to betray their colleagues to receive favours.
As such, the source says that deployments in ‘lucrative’ districts and regions depended on how loyal one was to Kaweesi. Those who were not favoured ‘hated’ Kaweesi even more.
While Kaweesi favoured some of his juniors, he came to be recognized as Kayihura’s blue-eyed boy having served as his personal assistant before he was sent to Kabalye Police Training School as the commandant.
Since then, he has always been favoured in deployment, praised by Kayihura openly, a fact that did not go down well with some members from his intake and his seniors.
A very active and hardworking officer with the command ability that most of his seniors lacked, Kaweesi’s capabilities were recognized in 2011 during the opposition-led walk-to-work demonstrations that had threatened to paralyse business and government operations in Kampala city. President Museveni granted Kaweesi a permanent and pensionable position as a Director of Police while his comrades were on contracts that were not pensionable.
While all other directors and even the IGP Kale Kayihura had to seek renewal of their contracts after every three years, Kaweesi and Grace Akullo, the director of Criminal Investigations were put on permanent employment. Predictably, this did not go well with some officials within the Police Force.
In 2015, Kaweesi was transferred from being the Director Operations to a newly created Directorate of Human Resource Development, a move that was seen as a loss of confidence in Kaweesi by Kayihura.
Another source who preferred anonymity so they can speak freely told URN that, Kaweesi’s woes arose from money that was given to him to distribute to National Resistant Movement (NRM) chairpersons in various districts but did not reach the recipients.
“Each one of us was supposed to receive Shs 25 million but all that money remained with him. That is how the information that he was working the former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi (who contested for presidency against President Museveni) reached Kayihura and the president. His powers were reduced immediately,” says the source.
But his talents were more important than any suspicion on his loyalty and he was a few months later put in charge of the police public relations department when the image of the force and its boss was so tainted.March 19, 2017 at 6:10 pm #564
THE MURDERER OF KAWEESI THINKS THAT ALL UGANDANS ARE FOOLS!
What we all know and have seen is that injuries sustained appear to be from the back and Kawesi’s body clearly was short from the back and has a large open wound from the front at his left side of chest. The driver has similar wounds. So is the body guard.
Ok we can take the bullets sprayed on the car came from the front, but how did bullets get to their back points and aim on similar position?Also look at it ..ckearly all of them fell facing the same direction… would y believe this is true image of what exactly happened as they are presenting it to us…. that they were short by Bodaboda men….. how can they fall facing the same way both arms facing the same way….the car did not swarve or move out of road its just parked…who was shot first? were they shot promptly at the same time…in that no body could even fall aside….of car…the destruction on the car is very small compered to a level thay would bring three policers to death…..
No need for invistigation by this police and army etc…. they cannot investigate themselves…..they will never produce thw truth.
Ugandans just go bury Kawesi and it would be great if Kayihura and M7 dont appear to this funeral… They are the ones killing Ugandans body else. No body else.
