The incident happened near Mulago Roundabout in Kampala.

In one of his last public appearances, Dr Kaggwa yesterday (Tuesday) addressed the Police Council meeting at Naguru Police Headquarters.

“The UPDF fraternity conveys its condolences to the family and colleagues of the late Dr. Med Kaggwa. We on many occasions worked closely with his office and salute his contribution towards entrenching constitutionalism and the rule of law in the country. Rest in peace,” UPDF Spokesperson Brig Richard Karemire tweeted.
