Mr. Mukesh Babubhai Shukla, a Kampala businessman and chief executive director of Shumuk Aluminum Industries, has been charged with 13 counts of forgery and related offences.
Shukla was arraigned before Buganda Road Chief Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday on six counts of forgery, six counts of uttering false documents and one count of conspiracy to commit a felony.

Police detectives from CID headquarters on Monday swung in action and arrested Mr.Mukesh for among other charges, forging Chief Justice Bart Katureebe’s signature that he used to allegedly steal the late Boney Katatumba’s Hotel Diplomat and other properties.

Prosecution told court that Mr Mukesh and others still at large on or about April 17, 2015 in Kampala, with intent to defraud or deceive, forged a letter for official handover of Hotel Diplomate in Muyenga, a Kampala suburb, purporting to have been signed by the deceased Honorary Consular of Pakistan to Uganda Bonny Katatumba. The charges were read out by Grade One Magistrate Stella Amabilis.

The state persecutor Ms Miriam Njuki said Mr Mukesh also allegedly forged signatures of Anne Grace Katatumba, Angella Katatumba, Rugirwa Katatumba, Ian Katatumba and ASP George William Karyegira.

The prosecution further alleged that in November 6, 2017 at Makindye Chief Magistrate’s Court in Kampala, Mr Mukesh fraudulently uttered a false document as a purported official handover letter of Hotel Diplomate.

Prosecution contends that Mr Mukesh presented the false document in the names of Anne Grace Katatumba, Angella Katatumba, Rugirwa Katatumba, Ian Katatumba and ASP George William Karyegira.
