Kifefe Kizza-Besigye‏Verified account @kizzabesigye1 TERROR & HORROR: AIGP Kaweesi & 2 other officers shot dead at 9.30am! Shocking! Condolences to family. @PoliceUg

Muhoozi Kainerugaba (@mkainerugaba): Today is a dark day for the country. Our dear friend and comrade AIGP Kaweesi was taken from us in a cowardly attack.

Pamela Ankunda‏ @Pamankunda Your neighbour,-or son might be a #TrainedAssasin; one for hire. Before you ask if the country is safe, know your neighbour.

Brig. Richard Karemire, UPDF spokesman: Kaweesi was a very professional police officer that the country will always miss

Sarah Kagingo, communications specialist, and Felix’s schoolmate

I studied 3 years with Kaweesi at Makerere University. He was a disciplined and quiet student. Calm! When I was elected Guild President and he Private Students Association Chairman, we agreed to resist strikes and never to lead any. Indeed there was none during our term of office. We decided to engage the University administration and government on students’ concerns. The last time I saw Kaweesi, he had his children at Cafe Javas. Rest in eternal peace. May God comfort your children and dear wife. May God rest the souls of your driver and guard in eternal peace. Mukama abasonyiwe ebyabasobako mu nsi.

norbertmao: If there is a death that can be described as untimely, it is that of Kaweesi..

PM @RuhakanaR: Adrew Felix Kaweesi has been one of the best police officers.
