Bring Them Or I Order For Your Arrest: Prisons Boss Survives Judge’s Wrath For Hiding Tycoon Kazinda’s Court Documents….

Tycoon Geoffrey Kazinda (L)

Uganda Prisons boss has survived being sent to jail for hiding court documents of embattled city tycoon Geoffrey Kazinda.

High Court Anti-Corruption Division Judge Margaret Tebulya had threatened to send Assistant Commissioner of prisons Apollo Baker Asinja to jail after he failed to explain why he didn’t pass over court documents served to him by attorneys from the Inspector General of Government (IGG) office.

This was after Kazinda denied before the judge ever receiving the final submission from the IGG in the case where he is charged with amassing huge wealth and failing to explain its source.

Senior State Attorney Sarah Birungi first told court that they had served the accused with the final submissions but he didn’t reply.

Kazinda insisted that he never received the said submissions even though court records indicated that he received the said submissions through Asinja.

The nonsense Tebulya tasked Birungi to prove to court that they served the accused by producing the said prisons officer who received the court documents.

Panicky Birungi took over one hour making frequent telephone calls to prison bosses, she was even heard threatening one of the people she was talking to that the judge was going to issue a court directive to have her arrested.

In thirty minutes, Asanja arrived at court panting. The judge asked him what his intentions were not to pass over court documents to the accused.

Asanja told court that he received the document but he doesn’t remember where he put them because they were given to him at a time when he was too busy in the field making sure that the directives to stop the spread of COVID19 are implemented.

Asanja’s statements made Tebulya lose her temper, he denied the IGG’s application to be added more time to look for the said submission and decided to go with that of Kazinda which was on court records.

The judge set Friday of this week for the court assessors to advise her on how to make her final decision on the matter.

State alleges that between 2010 and 2012, the accused, while still working in the Prime Minister’s office as the Principal Accounting Officer maintained a standard of living of income and assets whose sum for the duration of 2009 to 2012 was questionable.

The assets included: Rented and occupied suit 105 at Golden Leaves now Constellation suits Nakasero, apartments at Sheraton hotel Kampala for a period of ten months at a total of UGx 210,364,401, land in Bukoto and Mmengo worth 3,657,747,500, a fleet of cars worth UGX 769,473,835 among others.

It should be noted that the illicit enrichment case is the only criminal case that Kazinda is battling with after the Constitutional court declared that he was illegally charged and detained.

Buchaman and some of the military wear he handed over to police

Musician Mark Bugembe alias Buchaman has submitted a number of military attire that he has been possessing illegally.

The Self-proclaimed presidential advisor on ghetto affairs handed over the attire to the Kampala South Police Commander, James Ruhweza in Makindye, a Kampala suburb today in the company of his wife, kids and other ghetto members.

“I have been on a mission to collect all military attires from my ghetto people. I want to send my voice and appeal to all ghetto members throughout the country that we have only one army, called the UPDF,” Buchaman said.

Buchaman also issued a 14-day ultimatum to anyone with military and any security attires to follow the directive to hand over all the military attires or face the wrath of the law.

“Take all military attires you have any nearby police station. Even those calling themselves ghetto presidents, you need to heed to this directive,” he warned.

The Kampala Metropolitan South Police commander, James Ruhweza applauded Buchaman and his ghetto group for leading by example.

Recently, police spokesperson Fred Enanga warned that security forces will continue with operations on illegal use of armed forces uniforms.

He cautioned that the operations will be targeting illegal manufacture, supply and distribution and selling of the armed uniforms across the country including berets, pips, ranger boots and heavy jackets.

Last week, a combined team of security forces raided National Unity Platform offices in Kamwokya and other parts of the city where several people were arrested and other military attires confiscated.

Shortly after the raid on NUP offices, army spokesperson Brig. Flavia Byekwaso said that a joint operation is ongoing to recover military and police stores and other military/police patented designs from the public.
