Eyebrows have been raised after a top operative attached to the Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Department (CIID) of Police, who had been investigating Dr Louis Kasekende, the former Bank of Uganda (BoU) Deputy Governor has been mysteriously fired from the case.
Reports indicate that the officer, a one andrew Mugarula,was fired after his seniors had a meeting with Kasekende.
Mugarula suspects that Kasekende could have bribed his seniors, to axe him, thus foiling the investigation.
CIID 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 court order seeking to use the order to have Kasekende, Bagyenda and Sekabira arrested. Sekabira has snubbed police summons on two occasions.
