The former executive director for Bank of Uganda Supervision, Justine Bagyenda’s security guard and driver were dragged to court over stolen bank documents
The parliamentary committee investigating the closure of commercial banks last Thursday ordered police to arrest Juliet Adikot (bodyguard) and Job Turyahabwe (driver) after the duo gave contradicting testimonies to the committee in relation to Bagyenda’s itinerary on the day three bags were returned to the central bank on February 10, 2018.
Charles Mollo and Beatrice Kyambadde, the BoU security personnel, who were manning the access points that Bagyenda used, were also arrested for negligence because they allowed her in and out without conducting the requisite checks as spelled out in the BoU security manual.
The duo had initially told a sub-committee chaired by the Army MP, Brig Francis Takirwa, that they drove Bagyenda from Entebbe airport directly to BoU.
While appearing before the Committee on Monday Bagyenda apologized for missing committee meetings and begged the committee to release her bodyguard and driver.
The committee chairperson Abdu Katuntu rejected her request and reminded her that it’s a criminal offence to lie while on oath.
“It’s a matter of police and DPP,” Katuntu said.
