EOC boss Ntambi sent to Kigo prison


The chairperson of Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) Sylvia Ntambi Muwemba has been remanded to Kigo prison.

Ntambi was charged with corruption and fraud related offences in regard to mismanagement of millions of taxpayers’ money.

On Thursday, she took to the dock after snubbing three court summons.

She denied allegations of conspiracy to defraud government and corruption before the Anticorruption Court at Kololo, Kampala.


Chief Magistrate Pamella Lamunu Ocaya had threatened to issue a warrant of arrest against her.

She applied for bail and presented three civil society workers as her sureties.

They are; Julius Mukunda of CSBAG, Patricia Bambi of FOWEDE and EOC member Zamina Malore.

The magistrate, however, remanded Ntambi until November 4 for fresh bail application on grounds that two of her sureties did not prove their places of work.

According to the amended charge sheet, the 10 commission officials are facing 25 corruption-related charges.

They range from causing financial loss, conspiracy to defraud, embezzlement, corruption,  and abuse of office.
