FULL LIST: Uganda’s Top Tax Payers 2017, Sudhir’s Crane Bank Beats DFCU Bank

Published

on

 

A new list from Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), of Uganda’s top 273 top tax payers in 2017, shows that Crane Bank paid more taxes than DFCU Bank in 2017 despite the fact that DFCU took over Crane Bank in January of that year as over 270 top companies paid over Shs4.2 trillion.

In a list led by telecom giants MTN who paid over Shs430 in taxes, Crane Bank paid taxes worth over Shs33.5 billion while DFCU Bank paid taxes of over Shs26.2 billion, putting Crane Bank in position 24th while the latter in 27th.

It should be remembered that in January 2017, Bank of Uganda (BOU) announced that it had sold Crane Bank to DFCU Bank in a controversial deal worth Shs200 billion after taking over management of Crane Bank in October 2016.

Kampala businessman and majority shareholder in Crane Bank Sudhir Ruparelia later sued BOU and DFCU Bank for illegally taking over his bank. Specifically, Sudhir said BoU took over his Bank, branches and properties, which it handed over to DFCU bank without proper transfers. But BOU through DFCU, has also sued Sudhir and his Meera Investments, accusing him of fraud that reportedly causing Crane Bank a loss of Shs400bn. The case is pending in court.

BOU and DFCU also claimed that a lot of the assets of Crane Bank were bad loans, worth Shs550 billion. They claimed that DFCU inherited Shs800 billion worth of good loans from Crane Bank. But DFCU had invested nothing to get the loans worth 800 billion.

Meanwhile, the central bank claimed then that Crane Bank had non-performing loans (bad loans) worth Shs550 billion and as such claimed they were written off to zero and Sudhir has been asked to pay for all of them. But most of all the so called “bad loans” had collateral, in most cases the best pieces of real estate in Uganda.

However, DFCU Bank would in mid-August 2017 raise eyebrows in the public as it announced half year net profit of Shs114 billion, up from Shs23.3bn in June 2016. Interesting, more than a year after taking over Crane Bank management, DFCU reported a huge profit of Shs127.6 billion in the year that ended on December 31, 2017 compared to Shs46 billion earned in the same period in 2016.

MTN Chairman Charles Mbire Quizzed Over Telecom Giant’s Saga

Published

on

MTN Chairman Charles Mbire has been quizzed over the MTN saga according to information obtained by the Grapevine.

Security sources have told this website that the tycoon was quizzed over activities of top expatriates (some of whom have been deported), who used the mobile system to try to distabilise national security by supporting subversive activities.

“These MTN bosses, some of who have been deported, were using the mobile money system to support some individuals who wanted to distabilise the country. Money from individuals from hostile countries was being passed through their MoMo system,” the security source told the Grapevine.

When quizzed further on what really took place during Mbire’s quizzing, the source told this website that this information is still confidential.  MTN CEO Wim Vanhelleputte was deported yesterday back to Belgium, three weeks after three of the company’s expatriate staff were expelled.

Security sources have also told the Grapevine that former Head of Legal and Lawyer Katamba Anthony recorded statements. The source added that MTN is also involved in under declaration of Mobile money transactions.

Three weeks ago, MTN Uganda’s general manager for mobile money Elsa Mussolini, an Italian citizen, marketing chief Olivier Prentout, a French national, and Annie Bilenge-Tabura, a Rwandan who was head of sales and distribution were deported. Ugandan authorities accused them of using their positions to “compromise national security.

TENSION: MTN CEO Kicked Out Of Uganda Three Weeks After His Three Staff Were Deported For Being A Threat To National Security

Published

on

MTN CEO Wim Vanhelleputte has been deported tonight back to Belgium, according to sources, weeks after three of the company’s expatriate staff were expelled.
Three weeks ago, MTN Uganda’s general manager for mobile money Elsa Mussolini, an Italian citizen, marketing chief Olivier Prentout, a French national, and Annie Bilenge-Tabura, a Rwandan who was head of sales and distribution were deported. Ugandan authorities accused them of using their positions to “compromise national security.
A deportation letter dated 14th February 2018, signed by Minister of Internal Affairs Jeje Odongo says that Vanhelleputte has been ‘deemed to be an undesirable immigrant’.
“And I further declare that this order shall be carried into effect by the removal of the said Wim Vanhelleputte by deportation and while waiting to be conveyed to the place of departure shall be kept in custody,” part of the deportation order reads.


Last July, MTN said armed men claiming to be from Uganda’s Internal Security Organisation “kidnapped” two of its contractors and forced them to open up the company’s main data centre, where they made an unsuccessful attempt to access it’s servers.
The telecom firm, one of Africa’s largest, has run into legal trouble elsewhere.
