Lawyers Handed Over to CID Over 2BN Compesation Scam
By Melanie Aanyu,
The Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities, and State Enterprises (COSASE) has handed over two lawyers, Kyle Lubega and Richard Buzibira to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Parliament over their role in Shs2 billion compensation scam.
The money was part of the Shs10.6 billion supplementary expenditures to the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development in the Financial Year 2020/2021 meant to pay six landlords.
However, the committee in June 2021 received a request from the genuine owner of the land stopping any further payment or compensation claiming the people being paid were illegitimate owners.
