Mobile money transactions for Bank of Uganda (BoU) deputy governor Louis Kasekende have leaked, in what seems like a scandal that is not about to end.
Kasekende has been in the news after the Inspectorate of Government ordered scores of BoU officials to declare their wealth.
A leaked declaration of wealth report showed how rich the Kasekendes are – owning upto Shs 10bn in properties and cash.
Then came another leaked document, which Standard Chartered Bank has since denied, several transactions by Edith Kasekende, wife to the deputy central bank governor.
The multi-billion transactions included money that was sent from BoU to Edith’s Standard Chartered Bank account.
And before that dust could settle, another leaked document showing the mobile money transactions of the second most important person at the central bank has stoked the fire of this financial scandal.
The summary of transactions was drafted by Paul Tusubira associates.
The leaked statement shows Kasekende’s mobile money summary report between 2017 and 2018.
On a daily average, Kasekende transacts Shs 3.3m on mobile money.
In a period of nine months, between June 2017 and March 2018, Kasekende transacted Shs 897m.
From his family members and farm manager Bagonza Kasekende, the deputy governor received Shs 444m.
The rest of the money was used to pay utilities – Umeme and NWSC bills – wedding contributions, funeral condolences, church fundraisers, among others.
