Obey, Lwamafa, Kunsa appeal against sentence in Shs88 billion pension scam

Three former ministry of Public service senior officials who were recently convicted for causing government loss of Sha88 billion have appealed against court’s judgment.

On November 11 this year, Jimmy Lwamafa, the ex-permanent secretary guilty; Stephen Kiwanuka Kunsa, the ex-director research and development and Christopher Obey, the ex-principal accountant were found guilty of causing government loss of Shs88.2 billion.

The money of which was for pensioners.

The presiding judge, Lawrence Gidudu of the Anti-Corruption Court in Kampala in his ruling said the plan by the three suspects and others to steal the money was hatched in the public service, smoothened in finance ministry and executed in Cairo bank where the money was finally paid out to ghost pensioners.
Consequently, the three were handed varying sentenced.
However, they have filed a notice of intention to appeal before the Court I appeal.
They have not yet given the reasons for their appeal against the conviction and sentence as the certified copy of the judgment is yet to be given to them.
Weeks before their conviction and sentence, court assessors had advised that the three were innocent and should be let free.
Vincent Ferrer and Stanley Kurung had advised court that, in their opinion as assessors, the prosecution did not prove that the suspects caused government a financial loss.
Mr Ferrer read out the joint opinion in which they argued that evidence presented showed that the money in question was paid to commercial banks, in particular Cairo Bank. He wondered why the banks were never investigated.
He said that if the money was lost, then the fraud originated from the banks and that the three were never linked to it.
The courts assessors observed that the head of the CID, Grace Akullo, who unearthed the alleged fraud of Shs165 billion in the public service ministry, was never called to testify.
“In the ministry’s work plans, the item NSSF was not there and this confusion must have been introduced by Mr Josses Tegyeza onto the payment system as he had the mandate to ensure that there were no entry errors into the payment system…” Mr Ferrer said.

LDC bans mini – skirts from lectures, student protests

The Law Development Centre (LDC) banned a young lady from attending her lecturers due to being dressed in a mini – skirt as depicted by the picture above.

Joanine Nanyange then took it to Social Media to protest what she believes as unjust treatment. Below is her post on Facebook and it has been shared by many on other social media platforms.

———!

Today, dressed like this, I went to the Law Development Centre to attend classes. Unlike all other days, I saw two women seated right outside the Centre’s gate, one dressed in a Khaki Police uniform.

It was an unusual sight and I thought there was something or someone epic on campus. I got off the boda boda and walked towards the gate. The uniformed woman flagged me down and being the law abiding citizen that I am, I stopped.

She asked me to pull my skirt down to see how far down it could go. I burst into laughter. Her request didn’t make sense. She insisted, quite seriously. I told her that was the farthest my skirt could go and there was no need to pull it.

The other woman, ever with a very satisfied grin, told me I could not access the campus because my skirt was not long enough for LDC standards. I was shocked. Yes. Shocked.

Seeing the bewilderment on my face, the two women laboured to explain. Apparently, skirts like mine attract the boys and men that we study with and bar them from concentrating. So they could not be allowed!!!!!!

During induction week, the Deputy Director of the Centre, a woman, told us we shouldn’t wear clothes that distract ‘our brothers’ most of whom are married. I posted about it here.

When I got the so-called rules of LDC, I read the section about dress-code and it’s ridiculous. They even prescribe the coulour of socks that men should wear!

Having dealt with Ugandan systems, including courts which should know better, I know that until something directly affects you, you are not allowed to complain about it.

This far, these rules have not been implemented. Now that they have, I am allowed to complain.

A few years ago, 2014 to be specific, Parliament was debating a law that was dubbed the ‘mini-skirt Bill’ for its apparent prohibition of mini-skirts.

As would be expected, the Bill caused an uproar among opponents and proponents alike.

On one side, there was anger about the ridiculousness of the law along with its discriminatory and sexist undertones; while on the other side there was excitement over the law’s presentation of fertile ground to ridicule and dehumanise women just for the fun of it.

Activists stood up against the law and some of these provisions were removed.

But the damage was done. Women had been attacked. Women had been beaten. Women had been undressed. We were livid.

But how can we be angry with boda boda men attacking and undressing women for wearing short things when we have institutions that we hold to higher levels of understanding and responsibility fostering cultures that say women are only as appropriate as men say they are?

How can we, in good conscience, blame Minister Kibuule for saying women that dress indecently should be raped when we have an institution like LDC barring female students from class so the male ones can concentrate?

Our bodies have been so sexualised to points of madness and like all cases of marginalisation, the victim pays the price.

Why should I miss my classes because men cannot control their sexual urges (that is if they are as bad as they are portrayed)?

How is that my problem? Patriarchy has been so grossly institutionalised we all feel the need to legislate and pass rules controlling women’s bodies, by among other things creating de facto dress codes for them.

I Work hard, and I manage to pay the millions of shillings required for LDC’s tuition. But I can’t access the campus to attend my classes because when ‘my brothers’ look at my knees and legs, they will get erections.

Please let us live. Allow us to prosper. This nonsense needs to end.
