monitor.co.ug on December 6, 2011 reported that the corruption case against former Global Fund project coordinator Tiberius Muhebwa has been referred to the Constitutional Court for interpretation of contentious issues he raised. Dr Muhebwa, who oversaw the Project Management Unit (PMU), faces charges of causing a financial loss of over Shs108m to the Ministry of Health when he “deliberately sold off Global Fund dollars to DFCU bank in unfavorable rate than what Stanbic Bank had offered.” Dr Muhebwa is indicted along with three others; Kampala City advocate Grace Kituuma Magala and two former DFCU bank staff Godfrey Lule, the then head of treasury, and Robert Katuntu, the then managing director. The suspects yesterday appeared before the Anti-Corruption Court to take their plea. However, their lawyers MacDosman Kabega, Blaze Babigumira, Fred Muwema, Nsubuga Mubiru and Oscar Kahika raised objections and questioned the powers of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DDP) to prosecute them.
