Following Bank of Uganda money saga, Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party seeks resignation of Mr Emmanuel Tumusiime Mutebile, Bank of Uganda Governor.
In a media briefing at the party’s headquarters in Najjanankumbi in Kampala, Hon Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, FDC spokesperson said that Mutebile should step aside because he has failed to manage Bank of Uganda.
“Mutebile should resign because he has failed to contain different scandals that keep happening one after another in the bank. I am sure he also does not know how they happen since he just wakes up and some things have happened,” Ssemujju said.
“Mutebile should have gone a long time ago, but the current government does not want him to leave. Since President Museveni appointed Mutebile, he should lay him off himself since he can no longer manage his house,” he added.
Police and State House Anti-Corruption Unit is conducting investigations on the said extra five pallets of money that were loaded onto Bank of Uganda cargo.
Some Bank of Uganda officials were arrested and remanded to Luzira Prison after they were charged in the Anti- Corruption Court in Kololo over corruption cases and abuse of office.
These include Fred Vito Wanyama aged 42 the branch manager and Francis Kakeeto, 36 assistant branch manager between France, Belgium and Entebbe International Airport in Uganda on April 26 2019.
