Early this week, a man identified as Robert Mpiima collapsed dead in a car at Post Bank Mbarara branch.
Before his shocking demise, Mpiima was driving a white Toyota Land Cruiser VX Registration Number UAS 205D believed to be one of his boss’ rides.
In a shocking twist of events, a photo of a seemingly different car with same number plate hit the social domain, sparking fury and concern among the citizens.
Uganda’s premiere tax body Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has addressed the concerns, shortly after launching a probe into the matter.
“Our Investigations have shown the owner of the car altered the color from white to black and then to white again without following procedure,” said Ian Rumanyika, the URA Manager of Public and Corporate Affairs.
The URA enforcement team has therefore summoned the owner to “to URA headquarters tomorrow (Thursday 8 June) without fail or face arrest.”
“The public should continue to be vigilant and together we can fight crime,” Rumanyika added.
