At least 250 people fell prey to the dubious scheme in which Muramuzi reportedly reaped a staggering shs7bn.

Some of the websites that the suspect has been operating are World movers, Massive, Pasco, Telex free which was formerly on Prime plaza, Adfast and many more.

On January 11, a one John Bosco Muhaire, 35, a director of Mix Link Company and a resident of Seguku a long Entebbe, linked up with Muramuzi, because he had heard that the latter is based in Hong Kong and that he provides links for employment opportunities.


Mix link company deals in finding employment opportunities abroad for Ugandans.

According to Onyango, 300 youths were trained at a fee of Shs1.5m each at Namirembe guest house in Kampala, promising them jobs of teaching English and taking care of the elderly.

Muramuzi received shs500m in this deal but fell short of honouring his promise.

It is suspected Muramuzi has been changing names, at times calls himself Morgan Mugisha and Ronald Kato to avoid being caught by authorities.

Muramuzi was also pinned by one Jane Natukunda, who owns Prospector services limited, a company that deals in foreign employment.

It is said in July 2013, Natukunda lost a huge sum of money after being defrauded by Muramuzi.

“Such fraudulent tricks on internet are so prevalent. So the public is forewarned, because if the deal seems to be so good, there is likely to be a sinister motive behind it,” warned Onyango.

He further revealed several cyber crime categories such as “Silver package, where you subscribe and earn more weekly in US dollars, Gold, Platinum and Diamond packages”.
