Meet Bagyenda’s children with multi-billion property

Must read

As investigators from Auditor General’s office mount an appraisal into the works of Bank of Uganda concerning the closure of commercial banks, more information is leaking indicating how several top officials have amassed wealth.

Leaked details unearthed from the ongoing investigations link a number of BoU’s top officials to a number of wealth around the city and other upcountry towns.

Ms Justine Bagyenda, former Executive Director in charge of supervision, is reportedly to have wired up to Shs499, 428,906 million to a mobile money account belonging to his son, further details have emerged showing that her two children employed at Umeme and Stanbic respectively earn less than Shs5 million each.

According to documents seen by this website, the two children each own prime properties in Kampala and Western Uganda, raising questions as to how they could have afforded those properties, without the help of their mother.

Already Mrs. Bagyenda’s immense wealth is under investigation, pointing to the fact that she could have used her children to partly hide her wealth.

The children in question are a one, Robert Muhumuza Bagyenda, a Manager in charge of Agent Acquisition & Supervision at Stanbic Bank and Agaba Caroline, a Network Performance Engineer at Umeme, according to their LinkedIn online profiles.

According to credible sources at Stanbic where Mr Muhumuza works, he earns a salary of Shs4,452,000 raising questions as to how he is able to service a DFCU mortgage for Block 200, Plot 1548- Munyonyo Makindye Division- measuring approx. 0.0700 Hectares said to be worth more than Shs600 million.

The mortgage was registered at the registrar of titles, onFebruary 2, 2016.

This new revelation about Mr. Muhumuza’s salary could offer an explanation as to why her mother sent her up to Shs499, 428,906 on mobile money- to pay for the properties, acquired in his names on behalf of the mother.

Investigators from the IGG and Financial Intelligence Authority, who placed Bagyenda under investigation, may want to inquire into why Muhumuza, opted to take up a mortgage facility at a competitor bank, at an average 20 per cent from DFCU, yet Stanbic bank, his employer, offers all its staff mortgages at 7 per cent.

Caroline Agaba, also a daughter to Bagyenda on the other hand, who also earns below Shs4 million per month at Umeme, on the same date (February 2, 2016) had a prime property in Nakawa Division, Block 205, Plot 1352 measuring 0.0649 hectares registered in her names.

Undeveloped plots of that size in Nakawa are valued at over Shs500 million.

Little is known about Murembe also believed to be a Bagyenda kid who also registered another piece of property on the same day- Block 252 Plot 105A in Nakawa Division measuring 0.0800 Hectares; also said to be worth more than Shs500 million.

The three children together with Justine Bagyenda, already co-own two prime properties: Plots 10 and 21, measuring 0.0840 and 0.0820 Hectares respectively along Museveni Road in Ntungamo Municipality. They also own another property at Plot No.10, Kaguta Road in Mbarara Municipality.

Bagyenda’s children in trouble?
These new clues emerging about Bagyenda’s desperate efforts to hide her wealth could provide clues to investigators from the Inspectorate of Government and the Financial Intelligence Authority.

Should the charges against Bagyenda be found to be true, then her children too could be charged under the Anti-Money Laundering Act, 2013 (AMLA).
Under the act, persons who knowingly aids money laundering faces imprisonment of up to five years or a fine not exceeding thirty three thousand currency points (Shs660,000,000).
