Bank of Uganda guards jailed over security breach
CRIME | Two Bank of Uganda security personnel have been charged with negligence leading to the disappearance of closed banks documents.
Beatrice Kyambadde and Charles Mollo were charged at City Hall Court in Kampala on Tuesday and charged with negligence before they were remanded to Luzira Prison until December 6.
Kyambadde and Mollo, the BoU security personnel, who were manning the access points that former BoU executive director for Supervision, Justine Bagyenda used, were arrested last Thursday on orders of parliamentary committee investigating the closure of commercial banks for negligence because they allegedly allowed her in and out without conducting the requisite checks as spelt out in the BoU security manual.
The two were arrested together with the bodyguard and driver of former BoU executive director for Supervision, Bagyenda on orders of the parliamentary committee investigating the closure of commercial banks.
The MPs also ordered the arrest of Juliet Adikot (bodyguard) and Job Turyahabwe (driver) after the duo gave contradicting testimonies to the committee in relation to Bagyenda’s itinerary on the day three bags were returned to the central bank on February 10, 2018.
The duo was remanded after prosecution told court that police investigations is not yet complete
