Police in Jinja has arrested Razak Wasswa, a senior laboratory technologist for forging Covid-19 test results of Mathew Kirabo.
Kirabo is accused of masterminding the murder of his then girlfriend, Desire Mirembe.
After two court sessions where the accused did not turn up, his lawyers told journalists outside court yesterday that their client was ill with Covid-19 and therefore it was unwise for him to appear in public.
The lawyers claimed that Kirabo had tested positive at Jinja Hospital and that he was therefore bedridden at the same hospital.
According to Charles Twiine, who is the CID PRO, police moved swiftly to investigate the claim, and they found out that it was untrue.
Twiine said that the suspect, Razak Wasswa had absolute powers at the hospital and he used his office to forge the positive test result for Mathew Kirabo.
The CID PRO noted that Wasswa will now be charged with forgery and abuse of office.
Meanwhile the High Court in Mukono said that if Kirabo does not turn up for the next case hearing on November 17, 2021, his sureties will face arrest, including Kirabo,s mother and uncle. END.
