EX NSSF MD Chandi Jamwa Hospitalised

A Rwandan suspected of being a conman and a dealer in fake gold who fled to Uganda has been deported to Rwanda where he will be charged for his crimes.

Murasira Hassan, page 31, rx was escorted by Uganda Police to the Gatuna border on February 6, where he was handed over to Rwanda National Police and cuffed instantly before being transported to Kigali.

The RNP Police Spokesperson, CSP Celestin Twahirwa revealed that Murasira’s luck run out last month, when he conned a victim in Kigali and ripped him of US$27,000 (Approx. Shs70m) after selling him fake gold.

“When the victim found out that he had been sold fake gold, he reported to Police; but before we could arrest the suspect, he fled. We immediately issued an arrest warrant for him and alerted Ugandan Police that a fugitive could have escaped to their country,” CSP Twahirwa said.

“Uganda Police Force sprung into action and arrested the fugitive. This stems from the good cooperation between the two police forces, which has enabled efficient operations in ensuring peace and security in both countries.”

His arrest is also a sign to other criminals out there that they have no place to hide in East Africa, according to Chris Musana, the Director of Financial Crimes at the National Central Bureau of Uganda Police Force.

“The good relationship exhibited between the states of East Africa, particularly between Uganda and Rwanda, has led to a number of fruitful operations that have fostered peace and security to the citizens,” Musana said.

“We have the technology and skills to ensure that such criminals have no rest whatsoever; and through Interpol, we share knowledge and information on all cross border crimes and fugitives from everywhere. We commend RNP for being an example in efficient partnership.”


Article 318 of the penal code states that anyone who obtains the property of another person by fraud or by intentionally using false names or qualities, shall be liable to a term of imprisonment of three to five years and a fine between Rwf3 million and Rwf5 million.

Born to Amos and Tezira Jamwa of Tororo, in eastern Uganda, Jamwa graduated with a second-class bachelor of commerce degree from Makerere University in 1994 before seeking more qualifications in accounting.

In October 2006, Jamwa was appointed the D. Craven Consulting managing director, offering technical advice to several financial institutions before joining NSSF.

Jamwa’s tenure at NSSF came to a grinding halt following the explosion of the widely-publicised Temangalo scandal during which he accepted to commit NSSF funds to buy an overpriced land in Wakiso.

Jamwa also led an investigation into the student unit cost at Makerere University, findings which were submitted to Museveni.

During his term of office, NSSF raised the interest rate to 14 percent.
