Embassy Money Theft Scandal: Uganda Recalls Diplomats in Denmark

Published

on


 

Foreign Affairs Ministry has recalled staff at Uganda’s Embassy in Denmark after their plans to steal public funds were exposed in a leaked recording.

“In the meantime, the officers implicated have been recalled to the Ministry headquarters to pave way for investigations,” said the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary Patrick Mugoya in a statement on Monday afternoon.

He said the Auditor General would “carry out a thorough investigation into this matter.”

On action that awaits the officials, Mugoya said: “Depending on the outcome of the investigation additional measures may be taken as appropriate.”

In the recording obtained by ChimpReports, Amb Nimisha Madhvani, her deputy, Elly Kamahungye Kafeero and other staff members can be heard sharing ideas on sharing money which was earmarked for COVID-19 preparations.

A staff at the embassy asks how much should be distributed among the diplomats.

Kamahungye then proposes “eight days.”

Nimisha then asks, “8 days – that’s for each, uh?”

Kamahungye responds: “Give yourselves 4,000 (dollars) each.”

It remains unclear who recorded the conversation. However, it could have been one of the staff members. One of the female diplomats is heard complaining that in the fishy deal, “some are earning more than us.”

Kamahungye responds: “You are the ones who put it.”

Shockingly, Nimisha is heard telling Kamahungye that “if there are any residual balances” the money, he should “find a way to utilise it.”

She also proposes that in sharing the money, some junior staff and security agents attached to the embassy should be kept out of the loop.

Mugoya said the Ministry “does not condone corruption and that, the use of public funds will adhere to the principles of transparency and efficiency and any deviation by any officer will be met with appropriate sanctions as provided for in the Public Finance and Management Act, and Regulations.”

Muntu Blocked in Kamwenge

Published

Alliance for National Transformation presidential candidate Gen. Mugisha Muntu has been blocked from campaigning in Kamwenge according to a statement he released earlier today.Below is the full statement:

STATEMENT
Today in Kamwenge, as we have done since the start of the campaign season, we headed out to speak with the people. We had earlier in the week agreed on the venue with security agencies. No one had anticipated that it would rain as much as it did, making it impossible for us or the people to access.

After identifying an alternative place only 100m away from the original venue, negotiating with the owner and communicating the same to the public, we headed to the second venue only to be stopped by police.

Our policy has always been to do all we can to be reasonable, even in the face of unreasonable action on the part of the state. We engaged the police leadership in a civilized, respectable manner well knowing that they intended to not only frustrate us, but cause us to act in ways that would give them an excuse to cause chaos. This was on top of their intimidating the radio we had booked and duly paid to appear on.

While we are confident that we are on the right side of both the law and reason, we have chosen not to endanger the lives of our supporters or the general public by escalating the situation. We will do everything humanly possible to avoid a single life being lost or blood being shed on account of our campaign.

And yet this truth remains: the regime’s days are numbered.

However, sources further reveal that Byabashaija could have courted the second lady for protection given that he has amassed a lot of wealth and could be a subject of investigations.

Our sources reveal that Byabashaija who carries himself as Mr.I know it all hasn’t met Madam Enid alone but a host of others with connections to the centre of power in the country.
