CECAFA: Walusimbi Powers Kenyan Champions to Semis

Anti-Corruption Court Grade 1 Magistrate Julius Borore who has in recent years cut a niche of a no-nonsense judicial official, this has warned that Marvin Baryaruha, viagra 40mg the interdicted Uganda National roads Authority (UNRA) Legal Counsel faces criminal summons if he falls short of appearing in court on August 11, information pills Chimp Corps report.

Baryaruha is among six suspects in the Katosi road construction scam in which government lost a staggering Shs 24bn.

Prosecution told court on Tuesday that Baryaruha could not be produced to take plea but did not provide reasons.

Former Works Minister Abraham Byandala, 65, Eng Berunado Ssebuga Kimeze, 54, former UNRA Executive Director and Joe Ssemugooma, 54, former Acting UNRA Finance and Administration Director, Apolo Senkeeto, 45, businessman and Isaac Mugote, former banker Housing Finance Bank  were arrested by police before being brought to the court in Kololo, Kampala.

Prosecution alleges that Baryaruha, between July and November 2013, while in performance of his duties as legal counsel to UNRA “manipulated the process of award of the tender and signing of the contract between UNRA and EUTAW Construction Company Inc (Eutaw) under procurement Ref number UNRA/WORKS/2009-10/00001/18/06 for the upgrading of Mukono-Kyetume-Katosi/Kisoga-Nyenga Road facilitating the payment of Shs 24,790,823,522) to Eutaw, a company which lacked the capacity to perform the contract, which act was prejudicial to the interest of his employer and the government of Uganda.”

Baryaruha also faces charges of abuse of office contrary to Section 11 of the Anti-corruption Act, 2009.

The State contends that between July and November 2013, while in performance of his duties as legal counsel to UNRA and in abuse of the authority of his office, “arbitrarily misadvised” UNRA during the procurement under ref. no. UNRA/Works/2009-10/00001/18/06 which led to the signing of the contract between UNRA and Eutaw for the Katosi road without completing due diligence and so facilitated the payment of Shs 24bn to Eutaw.

The third offence which Baryaruha will battle in court is corruption.


It is alleged between July 2013 and January 2014, while in performance of his duties as Legal Counsel neglected to professionally advise UNRA management in the procurement and management of contract for the upgrading of the road.

It is widely suspected that Baryaruha was among the key architects of the Katosi scam.

The UNRA board, chaired by Angella Kiryabwire in August 2014 kicked out Kimeze, Semugooma, Planning Director, Eng. David Luyimbazi, and Baryaruha, until investigations into the award of the controversial Katosi road tender were concluded.

The body would later cancel the contract with the shadowy EUTAW firm which had already received shs24bn for the upgrading of the 74km Mukono-Kyetume-Katosi-Kisoga-Ngenya road from gravel to Bitumen standard.

Enraged by the corruption at UNRA and being led by Byandala to launch the construction of the road by a ghost company, President Museveni, who appeared on a radio talk show where he warned that, “we will arrest those fools” – in reference to UNRA directors.

Addressing RDCs at State House Entebbe Museveni further said the Uganda National Roads Authority was “becoming a problem” and that despite the progress in the road infrastructure development across the country, the Authority that receives Shs. 1,700 billion per annum mainly for the construction of tarmac roads has nothing much to account for the funds it has been receiving.

UNRA is one of the products of the Roads Sector Reforms charged with establishing a robust administration for effective and efficient management of the national roads network.

Its work has been marred by allegations of corruption and delays on major contracts.

The Commission of inquiry into allegations of mismanagement, abuse of office and corrupt practices in UNRA is already underway.
