Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) executive director Dr Andrew Seguya is in hot soup for allegedly asking bribes from three banks.
President Yoweri Museveni has directed Inspector General of Government (IGG) Irene Mulyagonja to investigate UWA and Dr Seguya.
In a May 02 letter to Mulyagonja, President Yoweri Museveni wants Seguya investigated for, among others, “trying to get bribes from Centenary Bank and Crane Bank so as to maintain the Shs 28 billion deposits in those banks”.
In the process, Museveni’s directive adds, that Seguya had caused a financial loss of Shs 1.5bn by withdrawing money after the banks refused to offer him bribes.
“Even without causing financial loss, it is criminal enough for a public officer to ask for a bribe,” Museveni writes.
“I, therefore, request that you investigate these allegations and give me a report,” Museveni concludes.
“If there is a prima facie case, the executive director should be suspended.”
