Uganda Boxing Federation President Moses Muhangi has been arrested!
This, comes a day after the Netball President Sarah Babirye Kityo was remanded to Luzira.
On Tuesday, Muhangi was handed to Police CID to make a statement by Public Accounts Committee over accountability queries.
It is said that Muhangi is being held at CPS in Kampala, by press time.
While appearing on NBS on Monday night, Muhangi who has denied wrong doing, said that Minister of Sports and Education Janet Museveni should come out or else “People are going to start dropping dead on the streets.”
Issues of Accountability
On Monday, NCS Chairperson Ambrose Tashobya called out some sports federations including UBF that they have refused to account for Government funds required by the law.
Tashobya said: “It is our wish that all these federations receive and spend money in a manner which fits the law so that they can come back for more, but there is a high level of adamancy from some of the federations claiming we are overburdening them with accountability.”
In that sitting, the Public Accounts Committee handed Muhangi and the former accountant of UBF, Lydia Namuleme, to the Parliament Police Criminal Investigations Department for further management on allegations of forgery, uttering false documents and misappropriation.
Ogwel, on Monday night, advised Muhangi: “He should clear what he is being asked for by the Public Accounts Committee with proof and facts, and that’s it. He will be free.”
Luke Owesigire, the Deputy Spokesperson Kampala Metropolitan Police, has stated: “Muhangi has been arrested on alleged case of forgery and false accountability.”
