CIID BOSS AKULLO THREATENS TO RESIGN

BY KENNEDY MUHIRE

The Uganda Police has been hit with yet another shocker, with the Director of CIID Grace Akullo threatening to resign.

Grace Akullo who has been at the helm of Crime intelligence and investigation in the force has reportedly been grossly frustrated by elements in Police, forcing her to think of quitting the force.

The ugly fights and intrigue, according to a source in the Human Resource Department stems from some critical departments that initially belonged to the directorate of crime intelligence and investigation unit which is not functional any more.

Even before the president’s order of cleaning up the CIID department, Akullo who had earlier been praised by the President had been at logger heads with an army attaché commanding the crime intelligence unit based at Bugolobi.

Col Ndahura Atwoki who joined the police on orders of the President 3 years ago is said to be the source of Akullo’s trouble.

Several senior detectives in the department have repeatedly accused Col Ndahura as an agent of sabotage, which has incapacitated the directorate of CIID.

The Director CIID Grace Akullo blames all the problems in the department to Col Ndahura.

A source from the police human resource department revealed to UTN that the disgraced senior officer has allegedly handed in her resignation, awaiting for acceptance from the president.

“The President has not yet attended to her request. If he does, you will all know”. The source said

Talking to UTN about the same, Akullo declined to give further details, but said it was not criminal for anybody to tender in resignation not only in the police but in the entire public service. “Anyone can tender I their resignation. It is an acceptable mode of work anywhere including in the Police Force”. She said in a telephone interview.

She later referred us to Police spokesperson for she says she is not the right person to comment on the matter.

We have reliably been informed that the embattled senior investigator is plotting for a job in Bank of Uganda, reportedly as senior fraud investigating officer. This will be great riddance and a career saving achievement for Akullo known for her smart investigative work.

Akullo has served in the force for more than two decades, with several key assignments and thorough investigative jobs that enabled her climb through the ranks.

One of the most famous cases she ever handled was the Office of the Prime Minister Scandal involving over Shs. 500 billion. Senior Accountant Geoffrey Kazinda and others were prosecuted.

The trial Magistrate subsequently sentenced Nantaaya to two weeks in Prison for contempt of court while her two sons Robert Ndidde and Musiitwa James were fined 60m and 30m respectively for their continued disobeying of Court order; contempt of Court., “A warrant of arrest is issued to detain the 1st Respondent (Josephine Nantaya Kabuusu) in civil prison for two weeks” reads part of the order issued by Registrar.

the 2nd and 3rd Respondents are directed to pay a fine of Shs. 60.000.000/= ( Sixty Million ) and Shs. 30.000.000/= ( Thirty Million ) in court respectively order further reads.

The widow ( Josephine Nantaya Kabuusu) has also been directed to deposit in court the original grant to the estate of the late Wilfred Kabusu till the matter is disposed.

Lands Registrar Otto Michael Gulumale on 16th April 2015 issued interim order refraining Nantaya together with her sons from selling, dealing in Land in question belonging to Kabusu and Yoana Mulo until disposal of the said land.

However Nantaya and her sons disobeyed the said orders and continued selling the said land in question.

The land in question is comprised on Blocks 333-335 Kyengera Nabingo, block 328/338 Buganga Mawokota, Block 88 Bukerere, block 8 Rubaga Kyadondo, Block 21 Busega and Block 82-83-85 Kasai Kyagwe among others all these estates of Late Stanslaus Mugwanya, Yoana Mulo Mugwanya and Wilfred Mugwanya Kabusu.

Nantaaya Kabuusu was dragged to court by Mulo Mugalasi Michael a brother to the late Kabuusu accusing Kabusu’s widow Nantaya of unlawfully undertaking letters of administration to take charge of both estates that belonged to late Kabusu and also taking over family properties which Kabusu was administering on behalf of the family.

Mulo Mugalasi Michael a brother to the late Kabusu through his lawyers of Ssenkumba and Co Advocates insist that a widow can’t take charge of all properties both belonging to late Kabusu and also that which belonged to their grandfather Stanislaus Mugwanya one of the legends of Sir Apollo Kagwa.

Mulo Mugalasi Michael now wants Kampala High Court Lands Division to make audit of the land in Question and also stream line estate of their Father Yoana Mulo Mugwanya and that of his late brother Wilfred Kabusu Mugwanya.
