Lawyer Bob Kasango battling heart disease, admitted at Nakasero Hospital

The jailed  public  service officials including Permanent Secretary Jimmy Lwamafa, Principle Accountant Christopher  Obey and Commissioner pensions  Stephen Kiwanuka  Kunsa are to stay on remand at Luzira prison a little longer after hearing of their case is pushed  by the Anti-Corruption Court to March 20th 2018 following the  reported deteriorating  medical condition of their co-accused Bob Kasango.

Court has heard that Kasango, a city advocate is currently admitted at Nakasero Hospital battling heart  complications that are not favourable to stand  trial.

Kasango is said to have connived with the three officials to steal Shs15.4 billion that was meant to compensate pensioners.

However even though Court of Appeal granted bail to the three officials pending their appeal filed to challenge the 7, 10 and 5 prison terms , they were however  not released from prison due to this pending charge before the Anti-corruption court .

Now presiding judge Margret Tibulya has adjourned the hearing of this case to   20th March 2018 with hope that Kasango will be fit to stand trial by then.

It should however be noted that Lwamafa, Obey and Kunsa are already convicts serving prison terms  for falsely accounting  for Shs 88 billion as NSSF contributions of public servants.
