The Anti-Corruption Court in Kampala has remanded Mitooma Chief Magistrate Sylvia Nvanungi and Sembabule Resident State Attorney Jacqueline Bako for alleged corruption.
The two appeared before the Anti-Corruption Court Chief Magistrate Joan Aciro who charged them with eight counts of corruption.
Bako was implicated in all charges, while Nvanungi was involved in one count.
The court heard that in April 2023, while holding public positions in Sembabule, the duo allegedly solicited gratification of 2.5 million shillings from relatives of suspects.
The prosecution alleges that Bako received 1.48 million Shillings from Franco Mulangwa as part of this arrangement.
The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges and requested for bail that was rejected, citing lack of credible sureties. END
