Former Works Minister Abraham Byandala Returns to Court Today
Former Works Minister Abraham Byandala appears at the Anti-corruption Court today for the hearing of his bail application.
Byandala was last week arrested alongside UNRA top officials, a banker and businessman, on 24 charges including abuse of office, disobedience of lawful orders, influence peddling, causing financial loss, and corruption among others.
According to prosecution, Eng. Byandala as Minister of Works and Transport arbitrarily directed the “immediate signing” of a contract between government and Eutaw for the upgrading of the Kyetume– Katosi road, facilitating payment of Shs24bn to a company that lacked the capacity to perform the contract, which act was prejudicial to the interests of government.”
