KAMPALA–Convicted former National social security fund (NSSF) managing director David Chandi Jamwa has Wednesday lodged an appeal against the 12-year jail sentence given to him by the Anti-corruption court.

In a notice of appeal has run to the supreme court to challenge the court of Appeal’s ruling.

Through his lawyer David Mpanga, Jamwa who lost his appeal in the Court of Appeal has Wednesday lodged a notice of appeal with the Supreme court’s criminal registry.

He is challenging the decision of justices; Rubby Opio Aweri and Kenneth Kakuru of upholding and confirming the Anti-corruption court conviction and sentence.

He is as well dissatisfied with the decision of 2 judges in re-evaluating evidence from the Anti-corruption court consequently convicting him of abuse of office thus sentencing him to a 4 years imprisonment term.

The appeal comes just two days after the Court of Appeal upheld his sentence of 12 years over causing a financial loss of sh3billion shillings to the fund.

In their judgement, Justices Kenneth Kakuru, Rubby Opio Aweri and Kenneth Kakuru advised Jamwa that the court of appeal was not the last appellant court for him and that he could go to the Supreme court if he felt dissatisfied with the ruling.
