EOC boss Ntambi out on bail


Court has released the chairperson of the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) Sylvia Muwebwa Ntambi on a cash bail of Shs3.5 million.

Court on Wednesday directed her to deposit her passport in court to regulate her movements abroad.

Ntambi appeared in Anti-corruption Court presided over by Grade One Magistrate, Moses Mushabe Nabende for bail hearing after spending about a week in prison over charges of corruption and fraud.

Through her lawyer Macdosman Kabega, she presented three sureties.

They are Civil Society workers; Patricia Nambi of Forum for Women in Development; Executive Director of CSBAG Julius Mukunda and Dr Sylvia Namubiru, the executive director of Legal Aid Service Network.


“This court finds the sureties presented substantial and the state has no objection. Each of the three sureties shall execute a bond of Shs40m not cash,” ordered Nabende.

The magistrate extended the case to November 24 for mention.

He also ordered Ntambi to deposit her land title in court.

Ntambi was remanded last week after her sureties failed to present documents in proof of their employment status.
