Kampala, (UG): Uganda’s President, H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has revealed that the suspects behind the brutal killing of former state prosecutor Joan Kagezi have finally been arrested.

The arrest of the four suspects comes eight years since Kagezi, the lead prosecutor in the July 2010 bomb suspects’ trial was gunned down in 2015 by unknown assailants as she returned home in Kiwatule, a Kampala suburb.

According to reports then, she had made a stop over to buy raw food with her children in a car when the ruthless assassins sprayed bullets and killed her instantly.
