Former UBC Managing Director Paul Kihika has been again remanded at Luzira prison by the Nakawa Chief Magistrates court on charges of giving false information to police. Court was treated to drama when he stated that does not understand English language and requested for an interpreter.
Kihika who was on Monday this week released on bail by the Anti-corruption court has been brought by the prison bus this morning to appear before Grade one magistrate Christine Nantege.
He has pleaded not guilty to one count of giving false information and has been remanded to Luzira prison until the 15th/August 2017 as he had no surities in court to apply for bail.
Prosecution States that Kihika allegedly reported a case of theft of his mobile phone at Jinja road police station while falsely accusing the head of media crimes in police Emmanuel Mbonimpa to have stolen it; yet later it was revealed that the officer had just confiscated this phone for purposes of investigations.
This is the second time in a one week row for Kihika to be charged and remanded to Luzira prison, the first being when he appeared before the Anti-corruption ourt on charges of embezzlement and causing a 33.6 million shillings loss to UBC in facilitaing a non-existent official trip to China.
