CMI Operatives in Algeria to Arrest Former Kayihura Aide

According to a source in the intelligence circles, Baroza has been implicated in the murder of slain police boss, Andrew Felix Kaweesi. The Late Andrew Felix Kaweesi was gunned down in Kulambiro, a suburb of Kampala, early this year alongside his Driver Godfrey Mambewa and Bodyguard Kenneth Erau.
The Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) has sent two of its operatives to North Africa to arrest Jonathan Baroza, a former Personal Assistant to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kale Kayihura.

The operatives who set off for Algeria where Baroza is deployed as a liaison officer for the Uganda Police Force were given strict orders to return with him.

According to a source in the intelligence circles, Baroza has been implicated in the murder of slain police boss, Andrew Felix Kaweesi. The Late Andrew Felix Kaweesi was gunned down in Kulambiro, a suburb of Kampala, early this year alongside his Driver Godfrey Mambewa and Bodyguard Kenneth Erau.

Baroza was mixed up in controversy on the attack from the first day when his bodyguard was arrested at the scene-of-crime for allegedly collecting blood of the slain officers. Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Fred Yiga issued the order for his arrest but was allegedly ordered to release him by his junior Baroza.

Once arrested, Baroza will bring the number of the suspects to eight following the arrest of two other police officers on Wednesday. However, Police Spokesperson Asan Kasingye denied knowledge of the said arrest.

The other officers now under custody include Joel Aguma, the Commandant Professional Standards Unit (PSU), Alex Tumukunde and Faisal Katende, both operatives from the Flying Squad Unit, Nickson Agasirwe, the former head of the Police Special Operations Unit at Nalufenya and another only identified as Magada.

Although the others are wanted for questioning on Kaweesi's murder, Joel Aguma is being investigated for allegedly repatriating several Refugees to Rwanda.

Aguma was implicated for kidnapping and illegally extraditing Lt Joel Mutabazi, a former bodyguard of Rwandan president, Paul Kagame leading to his suspension from the force for two years. Lt. Mutabazi was kidnapped from Sky Hotel in Naalya, a city suburb where he was living with his family. However, Aguma bounced back as the Deputy Director Crime Intelligence and was later promoted to head PSU.
