Former Minister Herbert Kabafunzaki convicted of Corruption

The Anti Corruption Court judge Justice Margaret Tibulya has convicted the former Labour Minister Herbert Kabafunzaki for corruption charges.

Kabafunzaki was charged with 2 counts of corruption contrary to section 2(a) and 26 of the Anti-Corruption Act 2009 and one count of conspiracy contrary to section 390 of the penal code Act.

He was charged alongside two others who include Mr Brian Mugabo, his political assistant, and Mr Bruce Lubowa, an interior designer in Wakiso District.

Justice Tibulya ordered the former minister to pay Shs 10M or face three years in jail.

The former MP for Rukiga County was also barred from holding any public office for a duration of 10 years as a consequence for his misuse of office.

The former legislator was arrested on the 8th of April 2017 for allegedly accepting a bribe of Shs 10m.

In the course of the legal proceedings, Mr Kabafunzaki at one time went missing but his wife Doreen Kabafunzaki was quizzed by Judge Tibulya on his whereabouts since she hadn’t filed a case of a missing person.
