The wild allegations started on Wednesday when Sabiti together with the new security minister, Gen Elly Tumwine, and IGP Okoth Ochola appeared before the parliament’s appointments committee.
Apparently, Sabiti arrived at parliament for vetting in a Toyota Land Cruiser bearing a number plate UAT 511C “which was issued for a Toyota Spacio according to the URA digital system”.
Social media enthusiasts claim Sabiti who has been in security circles connived with Uganda Revenue Authority [URA] officials to evade taxes.
URA’s registration procedure is very rigorous and clearing agents take an individual or company through an extensive process before issuing a registration book and a number are issued.
It is not clear how Sabiti registered a Land Cruiser as a Spacio. URA has not spoken on the matter.
MPs from opposition earlier in the week vowed to block him from being vetted.
They accuse him for being behind the 27th September parliament invasion by Special Forces Command [SFC] which he served as deputy commander.
Sabiti joined the army in 1997 having been in the so called “study groups” formed by the First Son, Maj Gen Kainerugaba Muhoozi.
Sabiiti’s father Zekeriah Magyenyi was married to one of Museveni’s maternal aunties. A bush war veteran, Magyenyi died in June 2007.
After he graduated from the cadet course, Sabiti was recruited into the Special Forces Command [SFC].
In 2012, he was made deputy commander of SFC until 2017.
In 2017, he was appointed commandant of the Military Police replacing Col Emmanuel Kanyesigye who was promoted and appointed the Fourth Division Commander in Gulu.
