Kabafunzaki in trouble again

Edited by Judith

Following his arrest for allegedly receiving a bribe of Shs 5 million from businessman Muhammed Hamid of Aya group, state minister for labour Hon Herbert Kabafunzaki is in trouble again.

The South Korean embassy has written to the permanent secretary ministry of foreign affairs seeking for investigations into the conduct of Kabafunzaki.

According to a letter dated April 24, the Kabafunzaki reportedly arrested a South Korean investor Woo Junghoon who had declined to give him a bribe of USD 5000. Junghoon was later detained at the Central Police Station in Kampala for 5 hours.

It is said that Kabafunzaki ordered police officers not to release Junghoon until the said bribe had been paid.

The South Korean embassy and a group of lawyers later intervened and Junghoon was released.

The embassy in a letter copied to the Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura say the behaviour of the junior  minister was wanting and should be investigated.
