Police Chief Fired Over Investigating Ex BoU Deputy Governor Louis Kasekende

A senior police officer attached to Criminal Investigations Directorate in Kibuli has been suspended after investigating former deputy governor Bank of Uganda Louis Austin Kasekende.

Sources at the Kibuli-based CID say that SP Andrew Mugarula was shown exit after his seniors had a meeting with Kasekende.

Mugarura suspects that Kasekende could have bribed his seniors, who in turn swung the axe over his head.

CID is currently investigating former top officials of the central bank over allegations that they illegally took ownership of land titles belonging to banks that were wrongly closed by BoU.

Kasekende, together with Justine Bagyenda, the former Director for Commercial Banks Supervision and Benedict Sekabira,the Director for Financial Markets Development Coordination(FMDC) are the trio being investigated.

The sacking of the officer comes just a day after police asked for a court order seeking to use the order to have Kasekende, Bagyenda and Sekabira arrested.

Sekabira was recently allegedly quoted as having said that he can’t be summoned to CIID like a chicken thief
