Uganda,Kampala-Social media critic, Frank Gashumba is in trouble for impersonation. He was picked up by operatives from the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) on Monday night for allegedly impersonating a Defense Ministry official and conning some foreigners.
The operatives later searched Gashumba’s residence in Bunga, a Kampala city suburb and the offices of Sisimuka Uganda based in industrial area.
Brigadier Richard Kalemire, the Defense Ministry Spokesperson has confirmed Gashumba’s arrest.
“Yes we arrested him and investigations are in the process to determine our next course of action,” Kalemire said. This is not the first time Gashumba is on trouble over similar allegations. In 2013, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations investigated Gashumba on similar allegations when he was accused of impersonating the Defense Ministry Permanent Secretary and defrauding Turkish investors of Millions of Shillings.
However, the findings from the police investigations were never made public nor did the case make it to court. It is unclear whether this is the same case CMI is investigating. Gashumba, a known critic of president, Yoweri Museveni has been arrested severally for defrauding unsuspecting members of the public.
