The Anti-Corruption Court in Kampala on December 12 ruled that Bukenya had no case to answer for lost monies during preparations for CHOGM in 2007.

Justice Paul Mugamba said prosecution miserably fell short of proving beyond reasonable doubt that Bukenya abused office and caused financial loss to government when he awarded Motorcare a contract to supply BMW cars and motor bikes during the Kampala Meeting.

All witnesses presented by the IGG cleared Bukenya’s name, saying he had no role in influencing the awarding of the contract.

Two top directors of Motorcare, Per Lundgren and Klaus Karstensen, both Danish nationals, were acquitted by the same Court.

The Inspectorate of Government (IGG) in June this year last year jonintly dragged Motorcare Limited as a company and Bukenya to court over the botched CHOGM deal.

IGG Chief Prosecutor Sydney Asubo never had a single evidence to prosecute Bukenya.

The development shows how government continues losing money in “politically-influenced” cases.

While briefing the media last year, President Yoweri Museveni said the institution of the IGG was being used by politicians to nail their rivals.

In his affidavit, Bukenya also wants Shs4m for expenses on fuel which he used to drive from his hometown of Kakiri to attend court sessions.

He also contends that government must pay for all legal costs he incurred during the trial.
