The Anti-Corruption Court has charged two men with five counts of electronic fraud in connection with impersonating Mr John Rujoki Musinguzi, the Commissioner General of Uganda Revenue Authority (URA).
The two accused Mr Francis Mutambuzi, 38, and Mr Ronald Muhumuziibwe, 26, a phone dealer appeared before the Grade One Magistrate Sarah Namusobya Mutebi where they partially admitted to the charges.
Prosecution contends Mr Mutambuzi and others at large on April 27, 2020 used a false Facebook account created in the name of Mr Musinguzi to deceive one Joab Nuwasasira among others that they were tax officers working with the URA for a consideration of Shs10m for a job offer with the authority.
It is further alleged that Mr Mutambuzi and Mr Muhumuziibwe in March at Wandegeya registered two SIM cards in the name of Johnson Bwambale which were used by Mr Mutambuzi upon creation of a false Facebook account and using another person’s national identification card which they pleaded guilty to.
The two have been remanded until July 9 for the mention of their case.
