Court remands three MPs over corruption 

Must read

Court has remanded the three legislators to Luzira Prisons until Friday June 14 when they return to court for mention of the cases.

The three are Lwengo District Woman MP, Cissy Namujju; Busiki County MP Paul Akamba and Bunyole East County MP Yusuf Mutembuli.

Appearing before the Anti-Corruption Court Chief Magistrate Joan Aciro, the three were charged with corruption. 

The three were nabbed on Monday after they had been summoned to record statements about corruption related allegations. The group was quizzed and later detained at Kira Police Divisional Headquarters, where they spent two nights. 

They were picked up yesterday from Kira Police Division Headquarters and driven to their respective homes for search. The search is aimed at gathering more evidence against bribery and corruption charges that are leveled against them. 

The development comes at a time when Parliament is at the center of controversy over corruption and bribery. 

During the State of the Nation last week, President Museveni said: “I have been getting good information about corrupt actors among public servants but also among political actors. With some evidence, we shall crush these traitors.”

“I have been hearing, but now I have proof. I have been hearing from the Ministry of Finance; they arrange for accounting officers of ministries to come to parliament. Working with some people there to provide certain funds, provided you take a share, I didn’t believe it, but now I have proof,” Museveni said.
