By Our Reporter
KAMPALA – As we report, a senior officer at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development, who doubles as the Head of Petroleum Quality assurance, Mr. Spero Byokunda, is reportedly on the run. In this exclusive, the world seams to have become too small for him to live in and apparently wanted by Uganda courts of law sitting at city hall in Kampala.
According to earlier Intelligence information from sources indicates that Spero Byokunda is a key suspect who masterminded the deal of fleecing a Serbian investor the one Mr. Ljuba Samardzic of $50m. However from the charge sheet seen by this publicational and from the Statehouses Anti-corruption unit, Byokunda together with businessman Emanuel Byankama were the ones missing from the list of seven (7) suspects who were remanded. The 5 suspects who include; Byomugabe George, Mugisha John Bosco, Mugisha Doreen, Kigundu Frank, and Barbra Kyobutungi were remanded until 10th November.
Apparently, our sources have since learnt that, court summons were issued yesterday following a request by State Attorney Ms. Mercy Khaidarah Yamangusho who said Byokunda and Byamukama are still at large. This has placed Byokunda onto on Ugandans most wanted man together with businessman Emmanuel Byamukama before 10th of November.
While trying to dig deeper into this matter this publication has discovered from reliable sources which told us that Byokunda is a well known poligamous man and owns several home both in Kampala, Mukono, Mbarara and Kanungu Districts and might have already left the country through the boarders of either DRC or Rwanda.
Another source which preferred aninomity said Byokunda was last seen at the home of his 4th wife Ms. Ajara Namagembe in Rwizi cell, Ruharo Ward Kamukuzi Division in Mbarara town. They added that in fact, he (Byokunda) is luxurious man who is ever loaded and can never jump beautiful ladies, a thing they allege could have been his prone to dubious fatty government deals.
A few days before his alleged run, Byokunda released a dossier alleging to have been betrayed by a close family friend. According to this leaked missive dossier shared on various WhatsApp groups, he wrote that, had it not been betrayal by close friend named Tumwebaze may be the matter could have been investigated and handled quietly.
In this dossier Mr. Byokunda commenced it in Godly greetings but rather in pain; “…. I greet you all in the name of God the Almighty, the Merciful. I am writing this message with pain and disappointment because of the disturbing information I recently received pitting me against on of my best friends…..”, the statement goes on. (Our website will give a full dossier at a later stage). However, at the middle of this dossier Byokunda pinned his frien that; “……By all minimum standards, Tumwebaze is known in many circles as my brother or my kin. Am sure many people will be surprised to hear all this and many others may not believe because of the close relationship I have with Tumwebaze”, he wrote.
This publication will keep you posted as Uganda security forces begins the hunt as they have already been notified to hunt for Mr. Spero Byokunda before 10th of November.
