A top operative attached to the Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Department (CIID) who had been investigating Dr Louis Kasekende,the troubled Bank of Uganda (BoU) Deputy Governor has been mysteriously fired from the case.
Highly placed sources at the Kibuli-based CIID say that the officer,a one Andrew Mugarula,was fired after his seniors had a meeting with Kasekende.
Mugarura suspects that Kasekende could have bribed his seniors,who in turn swung the axe over his head.
CIID is currently investigating former top officials of the central bank over allegations that they illegally took ownership of land titles belonging to banks that were wrongly closed by BoU.
Kasekende, together with Justine Bagyenda,the former Director for Commercial Banks Supervision and Benedict Sekabira,the Director for Financial Markets Development Coordination(FMDC) are the trio being investigated.
The sacking of the officer comes just a day after police asked for court order seeking to use the order to have Kasekende, Bagyenda and Sekabira arrested. Sekabira was recently allegedly quoted as having said that he can’t be summoned to CIID like a chicken thief.
