WAKISO-UGANDA/NEWSDAY: A man allegedly impersonating as an employee of the Col Edith Nakalema led State House Anticorruption Unit (SH-ACU) has been arrested.
During his arrest, Wednesday, he refused to mention his family name instead offering one-Isma. He is alleged to have been acting as a conduit in land fraud matters in Wakiso between criminal grabbers and the Ministerial Zonal Office staffers.
“I have verified with the SH-ACU and this man is not their staff. He will tell us where he comes from and those he has been collaborating with,” the Resident District Commissioner of Wakiso Justine Mbabazi.
Isma was handcuffed and taken into custody at the Wakiso Police Station. When asked who he was working with he only responded “I worked for people who have refused to pay me and I am being framed.”
RDC Mbabazi ordered and Isma was paraded before camers. Some residents who were attending State Minister for Lands meeting, Sam Mayanja, accused him of extortion and threatening them.
“He has master minded many evictions, masquerading as an employee of Col. Nakalema,” one resident aid.
Isma had attempted to take off but officers surrounded him and he was subdued.
Wakiso is infested with brokers who are said to extort money from unsuspecting people on behalf of the staff of MZOs.
Just after assuming her roles, Col. Nakalema raided Wakiso land offices in 2018 arresting several staff, some of whom are still in court.
