The Kololo based International Crimes Division of High Court was a scene of drama this as operatives re-arrested four of the eight suspects charged with the murder of former Police Spokesperson, Andrew Felix Kaweesi.

They are Yusuf Nyanzi, Jibril Kalyango , Joshua Kyambadde and Yusuf Mugerwa.

The four were picked up together with their lawyer, James Mubiru shortly after being discharged by the Registrar of the International Crimes Division of High Court; Esther Nasambu following their bail release by Justice, Lydia Mugambe.

Both uniformed and plain-clothed security officers locked at the main gate of the court to block the suspects from leaving.

The re-arrests follows President Museveni’s letter in which he criticized courts for letting killers off the hook.

Mr Museveni said that those who kill Ugandans must face death too.

The remaining suspects including Abdu Rashid Mbazira, Aramaathan Noordin Higenyi and Bruhan Balyejusa and Shafiq Kasujja had earlier on been returned to Luzira prisons because they have pending charges in Nabweru and Mukono Magistrate’s court.

The suspects are battling murder charges as they are accused of killing former Assistant Inspector General of Police, Andrew Felix Kaweesi, his bodyguard, Kenneth Erau and his driver, Godfrey Mambewa.
