Makindye East legislator Ibrahim Kasozi who also doubles as the deputy chairperson of Parliament’s Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises (COSASE) is in trouble over white dollar.

The Directorate of the police Criminal investigation is investigating five men who are residents of Makindye East for circulating white dollars.

Credible sources at Kibuli based CID offices told this website that on Friday last week, five men were arrested from areas of Kabalagala and Kasanga at one of the Forex bureaus exchanging white dollars which made tellers at the forex bureau curious and they called police.

Detectives at CID Kibuli disclosed that their officers swung into action and arrested the suspects.

During investigations, the suspects revealed that the money was given to them by their Member of Parliament Kasozi.

They were taken to different police stations and after they were released on police bond.

Detectives told this website that white dollars are dollar notes that were kept for a long time and are normally used mostly by fraudsters.

Efforts to speak to MP Kasozi were futile since he did not pick our relentless phone calls.

Kabaka Mutebi’s Mother Drags City Lawyer To Nakalema’s State House Anti-corruption Unit For Grabbing Her Inheritance…

Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi’s mother has dragged city lawyer Philip Mukhembo to President Museveni and Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema’s State House Anti-Corruption Unity.

Mary Ssimbwa (80) widow to Prince David Alexander Ssimbwa, a young brother to late Sir Edward Mutesa, father to Kabaka Mutebi claims that city Mukhembo grabbed 350 acres of the family estate land at Nantabulirwa in Mukono district.

According to the petition filed at the State house Anti-Corruption Unit, the widow claims that Mukhembo fraudulently grabbed their land in 2014 when she hired him through his law firm of Wameli and Company Advocates to secure for them letters of administration and later land titles in the names of the estate administrators.

She says that according to the agreement they signed, Mukhembo was supposed to get 10% of the land as his legal fees but he decided to take the entire piece of land and even sold off part of it.

In 2018, High Court family division judge Percy Night Tuhaise issued an order directing Commissioner Land Registration, Principal land Registrar Mukono district to process land titles in the names of the administrators of the estate of the deceased.

Ssimbwa’s widow claims that before the issuing of the land titles in the names of the administrators, Mukhembo through his lawyers of Wameli and Company Advocates filed a suit against the administrators of the estate and the land registrar of titles for issuing a land title without considering his legal fees he put in the case.

Efforts to speak to lawyer Mukhembo were futile but one of his learned colleagues at Wameli and Company Advocates told this website that the allegations from Ssimbwa’s family are baseless since they offered legal services to them and they didn’t pay.

When we contacted, Anthony Wameli, Mukhembo’s lawyer told us that he was in the meeting and promised to comment on the matter later.

The Uganda Prisons Commissioner General, Dr. Johnson Byabashaija has announced a hefty Shs. 500,000 bounty for every Moroto prison escapee and a heavy Shs1.5million reward for every gun recovered.

Byabashaija availed a sum of over Shs100 million to facilitate the tracking of over 200 prisoners in a substantial bid to manhunt and re-arrest escapees of Moroto Central Prison who made away with 14 guns.

All the 14 stolen SMG guns are still missing. By numbers, 198 inmates are still on the run, up to 12 of them have so far been reportedly taken back to the prison while 7 of the initial 207 escapees have been put out of action.

“I want to inform the escapees that it is a matter of time, we’re going to get them. Those who escaped in Arua, we got them, those who escaped in Bukwo we got them back. These ones we shall get them. In Uganda you cannot get lost. Even if you go in the neighbouring country by our corroboration we shall bring back, everyday we’re picking one by one,” Byabashaija warned, giving assurance that the culprits will be handled and held accountable for their multiple crimes.
