After a whistleblower petitioning the Inspectorate of Government asking the ombudsman to carry out investigations into the source of money on three bank accounts that allegedly belong to the former Bank of Uganda Director in charge of Supervision Justine Bagyenda, the IGG now is expected to start probing into Bagyenda’s bank accounts and posh properties.
Last week, Bagyenda’s bank accounts possessing shs20 billion were brought into limelight and the general public was left wondering how she managed to accumulate such huge amount of money within a period of six years.
After a thorough examination into the whistleblower’s account, the inspectorate has promised to open an investigation into Bagyenda’s source of staggering wealth.
According to the petition dated February 20, the whistleblower alleges that Bagyenda operates shillings and dollar accounts in Diamond Trust Bank, Centenary, Barclays banks on which she has stashed away billions.
The petitioner attaches copies of the bank statements that they claim belong to Bagyenda.
On one of the accounts purported to be in Diamond Trust Bank, she had saved up to Shs 11.4 billion as of December 1 2017.
The whistleblower also claims that on another account in Barclays Bank, she had a balance of Shs 98 million, while on the third account, she had up to Shs 3.7 billion.
In the same petition, it is claimed that Bagyenda also owns several posh properties spread across the country.
