Kajjansi Progressive SS Director in Shs1.7bn Scum: Lawyer Accuses Her Of Facilitating Forgery Of US Dollar Currency As She Comes To Court Dressed Like An Al-shabaab Terrorist…

Nsangi comes to court dressed like an Al-shabaab

City lawyer Derrick Bazekuketta has asked Buganda Road court to issue an arrest warrant against Rebecca Nsangi, the director of Kajjansi progressive secondary school for facilitating the forgery of US dollars.

Bazekuketta told Buganda Road Court magistrate Marion Magenyi that he has enough evidence pining Nsangi in a scum which involved manufacturing of US Dollars amounting to Shs1.7bn.

“Her worship, I have read and internalized the statement made by the complainant Miss Nsangi against the accused and discovered that she must be added to the suspects. She admitted in this statement that she was the one who facilitated the duplication of an international currency which is a very serious crime here and internationally,”  Bazekuketa submitted.

Nsangi in court

He told court that when Nsangi realized that she was facilitating a crime and that she had already lost a lot of money, she decided to turn against her fellow culprits and reported them to the authorities claiming that she was the victim in the scum. He further revealed that there is enough evidence that Nsangi has been pressurizing the state to hurriedly prosecute Rayne Mukasa, Muhammad Ali, Patrick Lwasa and Steven Bukenya on charges of obtaining money by false pretense after the whole deal went bad. 

State lawyer Mike Kintu pleaded with court to allow the prosecution to proceed with his ten witnesses because it’s an urgent matter and some of his witnesses are students who are preparing to sit for their final exams so they don’t have time to frequently come to court. The magistrate overruled Kintu and ordered that she will first make her ruling on the trespass charge sheet. However, there was comedy in court when Nsangi went into the dock dressed like an Al-Shabaab terrorist covering her face to avoid being snapped by the media.

The accused in court

WHAT HAPPENED?

Nsangi alleges that the accused extorted over 180 million shillings from her after lying to her that they had US dollars worth Shs1.8 billion but the problem is the currency notes had a US stamp on them that needed to be erased. They told her that if she could get them 180 million shillings, they will be able to use it to erase the stamp from the US currency notes and give her part of the money.

When she gave them the money, they took off into hiding. Nsangi said that with the help of operatives from CMI and ISO, they arrested the culprits and took them to court on charges of obtaining money by false pretense.

However, the accused say that Nsangi should also be put on the charge sheet because she facilitated the fraud.

Balaam Asks For Shs.1billion From Kabushenga Led Kampala Sun For Portraying Him As A Fraudster And Extortionist…

It seems the troubles of Robert Kabushenga led Vision Group are not about to end.

This is after events promoter and National Resistance Movement (NRM) party diehard Balaam Barugahara threatened to sue them if he is not compensated with Shs.1bn.

Through his lawyers of Isabirye and Company Advocates, Balaam claims that, Vision Group, through its weekly newspaper the Kampala Sun defamed him when they alleged that he was muscling Uganda Cranes players for a share of money allegedly paid to them by President Museveni.

“Needless to say, that the publication was false, baseless and not with any truth but has none the less damaged the reputation of our client in a manner that is irreparable, as when construed and contextualized in its natural, and ordinary meaning, or by innuendo, said article is understood to mean and to suggest that Mr. Balaam Barugahara, our client, is a criminal, an immoral and indefensible man,” Balaam’s lawyers stated in their letters.

They insist that the Kampala Sun article under the headline ‘Balaam harasses Uganda Cranes over Sevo Cash’ negatively impacted on the integrity of their client, demeaned his reputation in his capacity as a businessman and a family man in the eyes of reasonable Ugandans, East Africans, Africans and the world at large to the extent of him being viewed as a fraudster and extortionist.

“In addition to causing him to limit his interaction with his peers, contemporaries, business partners and colleagues in order for him to avoid the contempt and ridicule that he suffers when amongst them, this emotional suffering has caused him to suffer stress and affected his moods and behavior in a depressing manner,” the lawyers added.

They claim that because of such suffering, their client demands a public apology for the claimed false story and compensation of Shs.1bn.

They gave vision group only three days from yesterday to do so.

Last week, Uganda Communications Commissions (UCC) suspended Urban TV’s Scoop on Scoop gossip show after socialite Sheilah Gashumba petitioned the commission over defamatory statements from the show host Tina Fierce against her. Urban TV is another Vision Group product. Sheilah also asked for Shs.400 million compensation.

URA Speaks Out On The Fate Of The New 150 Recruits Who Are Struggling Financially After Resigning From Their Jobs During Covid19 Crisis….

Published

on

Uganda Revenue Authority finally speaks out on the fate of the 150 new recruits who were given appointment letters to join the national tax collecting body.

Vincent Seruma the Authority’s Director for corporate affairs and communication said that they know them but the situation right now cannot allow them to accommodate the new recruits.

He explained that due to COVID19 crisis, the Authority was forced to even send half of its staff to work from home.

He noted that they did that to respect the social distancing directive in the fight against COVID19 pandemics.

The soft spoken Seruma disclosed that they explained to the new recruits but it seems they didn’t understand that is why they are running allover claiming that they were dumped.

On the issue of paying them, Seruma said that they will start receiving their salaries and other allowances when they report to their working station.

Over the weekend, over 20 new URA recruits approached this website complaining that they were dumped by their new bosses because of COVID19 crisis.

They said that on 11th March 2020, over 150 of them received appointment letters confirming them as URA staff after going through a series of interviews.

They claimed that all the new recruits, were supposed to work in the domestic and customs department and were supposed to report to their new stations on 23rd march 2020.

They claimed that when the president declared a nationwide lockdown over COVID19 pandemic, their reporting date was extended.

They explained that they went through a lot of financial hardship since many of them had resigned from their previous jobs in the middle of the month of March.

They claimed that since March, they haven’t received any salary from URA and they are now suffering at home. President Museveni declared a cleanup exercise in URA where a number of staff were fired including their boss Doris Akol who was replaced with John Rujoki Musinguzi.
