Jamwa who faced the Uganda Anti-corruption court on Wednesday, 23rd June 2010 was denied bail after being arrested on Tuesday for trying to escape out of the country at the Eastern Uganda border post with Kenya.

The Chief magistrate of the Uganda Anti-corruption court in Kampala Irene Akankwasa says she has no powers to give bail to David Jamwa.

Jamwa who is remanded in Uganda Luzira prison is needed to answer charges related to the procurement of integrated management system, misuse of credit cards, procurement of stockbrokers, purchase of the controversial Temangalo land, status of Nsimbe holdings, sale of immature bonds, mismanagement of salary allowances and advances and investments of fixed deposits among others.

The charges arise from the Auditor’s Generals report ordered by President Yoweri Museveni. Jamwa’s former Deputy Prof. Mondo Kagonyera who is also the Makerere University is wanted to answer the same charges. Kayonyera says he isn’t scared of answering the charges.
