Leaked bank statement shows that, the huge amount of money was transacted by the wife of deputy governor bank of Uganda Edith Kasekende.
Billions of shillings have been transacted on the accounts of the wife of Louis Kasekende held at Standard Chartered Bank Speke Road in Kampala.
According to bank statement, Mrs. Edith Kasekende runs an Easy Go account at Stanchart Bank number 0100111660500, which she uses to transact hundreds of millions of shillings
The huge amounts of money raised eyebrows due to the fact that the Mrs Kasekende does not run any known business nor does she hold any serious job that may make her a billionaire within a short period of time.
For instance, the source at Standard Chartered Bank reveals that “She receives questionable deposits of Shs1.6Bn from BoU which she pays back, implying that she and other people, including her husband, use BoU for liquidation of their business and put the money back before it is detected.”
On one of her accounts, the statement shows that she received Shs1.7Bn from China Railway Seven CRSG Company and Shs394M from Arnold Masembe, which is suspected to be payment from BoU lawyers.
Her bank statement indicates that between 01-05-2017 and 17-05-2018 she received another Shs6447m from an unknown source and Shs421m from Bank of Uganda.
Over the same period, she deposited Shs415m and Shs383M respectively, and another Shs120m and Shs394m, although the source of this money remains unknown.
The sources went on to reveal that “There are large sums of cash deposits from unknown people, yet her property, as declared by the deputy governor BoU doesn’t match up to her bank transaction.”
The revelation comes at the time IGG is investigating the Deputy Governor of Bank of Uganda a long with other senior officials of the central bank over alleged frauds, corruption and abuse of office.
Kasekende and others are believed to have illicitly acquired multibillion properties in upscale Kampala areas, Wakiso among other strategically located areas.
IGG is interested in finding out their sources of wealth which they used to acquire prime assets in question including huge chunks of land in the city and very expensive posh cars.
