KAMPALA- Tension erupted at court premises on Monday after a matter of bail application for Nasser Nduhukire alias Don Nasser came before Entebbe chief magistrate and pushed to evening.
This saw several security operatives including Police Mineral Protection Unit (PMPU), and detectives take positions over as news came that the “Don” was to be arrested.
This website learnt from security circles of how the 32-year old Nduhukire was to be re-arrested upon being granted bail.
The source imitated to us without giving details of which new charges were to be leveled against Nduhukire, that would prompt his re-arrest.
Before granting a Sh50m cash bail to ‘Don,’ the Entebbe chief magistrate Mary Babirye, also demanded the accused to deposit all his passports.
Nduhukire was also ordered to least deposit one of his land titles.
“State (prosecution) must take trouble to verify the land title whether it is registered in the accused names and in case he has more than one passports, all should be deposited to court,” charged the chief magistrate.
Each of the five sureties was requested for a Sh100m non cash plus introductory letters from the their area chairpersons and human resource managers.
However, most of the sureties, including the accused himself, could not tell court the names of their area chairpersons though they had presented introductory letters signed by the same chairpersons.
This prompted the chief magistrate to retain their national identification cards, instructing Joan Keko who had represented the state prosecutor, to verify and confirm the residence of each surety.
Among the sureties was, Liberty Tumusiime Kamukama working with the ministry of Agriculture, Ramathan Ntungirehi working with National drug authority, Musin Matsiko a headmaster of Basajjabalaba secondary school in Ishaka district, Nadhir Kyeruzi and Shamirah Kekimuli a lawyer.
Pending verification of the bail conditions set by the chief magistrate, Nduhukire was remanded back to Kigo prison, surviving a re-arrest from the waiting police officers.
He faces charges of obtaining money by false pretence, when he allegedly conned an American and Russian nationals of US$4,700,000 in total, having promised to deliver 950kg of gold, which he never fulfilled.
