NSSF chairman charged and remanded to Luzira over theft

 

 

It seems it is only the GOD of heaven who can curb corruption in Uganda. The people in government offices, mandated to fight corruption are the most corrupt in Uganda.

If we don’t read news that the Prime minister has stolen billion of shillings, the next day we hear someone in NSSF has stolen billions. Now the court in Kampala on Friday charged the former NSSF board chairman, Onegi Obel with abuse of office over theft of 8 billion shillings and remanded him to prison.

 

Onegi- Obel was charged before Anti-Corruption Court   Chief Magistrate Sarah Langa Siu. But he denied the charges. Sydney  Asubo, the  director of  legal affairs   from  Inspectorate   of  Government committed   Onegi-  Obel  to  face  trial  in  High Court  Anti-Corruption  division.

Langa also denied Onegi bail. Onegi-Obel’s lawyer is Francis Gimara. The charges against Onegi-Obel were instituted in 2010.
