By Damali Mukhaye

The opposition Forum for Democratic Change has refuted claims by the state minister for labour Herbert Kabafunzaki that he was set up by FDC after he was caught allegedly taking a Sh 5m bribe from and investor in Kampala.

While appearing before the Anti-Corruption Court yesterday, Kabafunzaki denied the allegations, blaming his on the FDC.

However, the FDC spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda says Kabafunzaki was so naive that he fell in a trap set by the regime.

He says the FDC is not in any way involved in this matter because it holds nothing against the minister.

Kabafunzaki who was yesterday remanded to Luzira prison returned to the Anti Corruption Court this afternoon and was released on bail.
