On January 20, 2014, the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) signed and issued a Nolle Prosequi giving lack of evidence to prosecute, following a thorough investigation into the matter and the subsequent conclusion that it was a frivolous case.

The DPP also noted that the charges brought against Prof Vasudev Chaturvedi were utterly false and baseless, and were motivated by a malicious intent of extortion and blackmail.

Prof. Chaturvedi was detained by SIU Kireka in June 2013.

Ssekyewa alleged that he was taken to India, given Tea, which made him lose his senses only to realize that he lost his kidney at the hands of the professor yet it’s know that he went there willingly and actually donated his kidney.


Nothing can be farther from the truth, as was proved beyond doubt based on the extensive documentation and records pertaining to the case with the Ugandan and Indian authorities, the Indian Embassy, and at the hospitals in Uganda and India.

For their part, the SIU, without conducting any due diligence whatsoever by way of a primary investigation, moved forward with the arrest of Prof Chaturvedi.

However, the Chief magistrate assigned to the case granted Prof. Chaturvedi bail.

Before the Nolle Prosequi was issued, the case was adjourned four times since the SIU could not produce any evidence supporting the charges filed.

The case was then shifted to High Court – International crimes during December 2013.

In order to prove his innocence, Prof Chaturvedi submitted all evidence in his favour to the Government of Uganda.

It is outrageous that such a baseless case against Prof. Chaturvedi was even entertained when the facts clearly indicate that the kidney transplant case was carried out with the express consent of the donor and the recipient, the offices of the Ugandan Prime Minister, Defence Minister, Health Minister, and the UPDF among others.

Further, it was the Ugandan medical board that issued an approval for the kidney transplant to be carried out with Mr. Mathias as the donor.

All necessary permissions and approvals were obtained from senior authorities in Uganda and India prior to the transplant procedure.
