Police has started investigating the death threats claim made by Joel Ssenyonyi that his life is being threatened by a certain powerful Minister.
The chairperson of Parliament’s Committee on State Authorities and State Enterprises (COSASE) says this must be connected to the Uganda Airlines investigation.
Kampala Metropolitan police deputy spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire says Police is already looking into it.
Joel Ssenyonyi later in a tweet revealed that he had received a phone call from Minister of Tourism, Tom Butime, threatening him over his investigation into Uganda Airlines.
“Yesterday, I got a call from Tourism Minister Tom Butime, threatening and intimidating me over the Uganda Airlines probe. This is because apparently, Jennifer Bamuturaki is his relative. I’ve reported this at CPS, Ref GEF 60/2022 for it to be on record.”
Regardless, Ssenyonyi has vowed to keep his eye open on this case until the end of it. In fact, Ssenyonyi’s committee is expected to meet with Uganda Airlines officials again on Tuesday this week, following three meetings last week.
This story has been making rounds on social media following all the mishaps in it. This is especially regarding the salary payments of the Uganda Airlines staff.
The Uganda Airlines investigation was prompted by the Auditor General’s report for the Fiscal Year 2020/2021. This revealed that the Uganda Airlines administration had a number of flaws.
