The Nansana Municipal Officials Appearing in Court on Tuesday
The Anti-Corruption Court has remanded, Jimmy Ambrose Atwoko, the former Town Clerk of Nansana Municipality and three other officials to Kitalya government prison in Wakiso district for abuse of office.

The others are Hadijah Ssengendo Mukasa, the Principal Assistant Town Clerk Nasana municipality, Agnes Nakabugo, Senior Accountant and Senior Accounts Assistant, Florence Nayiga.    

The four appeared before the Anti-Corruption Court Grade One Magistrate, Moses Nabende on Tuesday afternoon in their official wear and were charged with four counts of abuse of office.

Prosecution led by James Khauka told court that in September 2019 while at Nansana Municipality in Wakiso district, the accused persons irregularly authorized the payment of Shillings 15 million to Vince Tours Uganda Limited for providing transport services in disregard of the proper procedures.    

Khauka informed court that investigations into the matter were complete and asked court to fix a hearing date. The accused persons pleaded not guilty to the charges and were remanded to prison until September 18, 2020, for their bail application hearing.

The magistrate couldn’t hear their application since he had other business to attend to.      

The suspects were picked up by the State House Anti -Corruption Unit following a petition by Councilors implicating them for attempting to bribe them to protect their alleged misappropriation of more than Shillings 2 billion.

Atwoki has since been interdicted by the Local Governments Ministry.
