State House Anti Corruption Unit working with Police have arraigned Rusoke Elijah Martin before the KCCA Chief Magistrates Court on charges of obtaining money by false pretence and conspiracy to commit a felony. He has been remanded until 12/09/2023.

According to State House Anti Corruption Unit, Rusoke is part of a group that allegedly defrauded Kenyan Nationals USD 361,151 approximately over UGX1.37B. The Kenyan investors own a company dealing in the supply of electrical appliances for big projects.

”In 2022, Rusoke and others still at large allegedly presented themselves as members of the NRM Special contracts committee on presidential tasks, a nonexistent committee claiming that the Kenyans had won a contract to supply generators in various hospitals that were allegedly under construction in the country,” says the Unit.

The State House Anti Corruption Unit (SH-ACU) in one year, 2022, managed to recover Ugx35.484bn from corruption masters of this country, the annual report revealed.

The Unit also managed to arrest and arraign in court over 448 suspects. Among these, courts convicted 70 culprits including government accounting Officers, Executive Officers, managing directors, Secretaries of Commission, CAOs, and Town Clerks.

SH-ACU was established under Article 99(4) of the constitution of Uganda, which gives the President executive powers to either directly or indirectly perform his duties or through officers subordinate to him.

Launched on 10th December 2018, SH-ACU coordinates with all constitutionally mandated agencies to ensure a corruption-free country.

The Unit also acts as a link between H.E. the President, citizens, and Anti- Corruption agencies in relation to Anti-Corruption issues. an accessible web community
