Breaking: Land Commission Chairperson Byenkya, three others charged before Anti-corruption court

By Mukembo Wilfred

The Anti-corruption court on Tuesday has charged the Uganda Land Commission chairperson Beatrice Nyakaisiki Byenkya with abuse of office.

Byenkya was charged together with three of her bodyguards including Richard Godfrey Anywar, Titus Wamono, and Edward Turyatunga. The four are also accused of obstructing a search in her office by officials from the Office of the Inspectorate of Government (IGG) on January 4th, 2022.

All the four accused persons however denied the charges but the prosecutors led by Dr.Earnest Katwesigye and Thomas Okoth told court that investigations into the matter are still ongoing.

The accused have however asked court for bail and trial magistrate Joan Aciro is yet to pronounce herself on the matter.
