Capt Donozio Kahonda

Ruhinda county MP, Donozio Kahonda, has been sentenced to nine months in Kirinya prison in Jinja district for forgery and uttering false documents.

The retired Captain who made news after beating Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister Maj Gen Kahinda Otafiire in 2016 elections, was Thursday jailed on 14 counts including forgery, uttering false documents and impersonation, among others.

Kahonda was first arrested in 2015 during parliamentary elections campaigns, charged at Jinja Chief Magistrate and locked away.

State alleges that Kahonda uttered the said documents at a military academy in Jinja with intent to defraud a one Dickson Mutabazi.

He was later given bail to complete his campaigns and indeed defeated Otafiire to become Ruhinda MP in Mitooma district.

Kahonda was again arrested yesterday and paraded before the same court which cancelled his bail and sentenced him.
