- The Zambian National is charged with Disobedience of IGG orders.
- He was suspended for mismanagement of the Airline.
- He denies the said charges.
The Former Uganda Airline Boss and Zambian National , Cornwell Muleya has been ordered to defend himself on charges of disobeying Lawful orders of the Inspectorate of Government.
Buganda Road Court grade one magistrate Asuman Muhumuza ruled that Muleya had a case to answer on the said charges due to evidence adduced by the IGG to sustain the charge.
According to the IGG, the said orders were requiring Muleya to appear in May 2022 to be investigated on allegations of mismanagement of public funds, procurement and recruitment of Staff at Uganda Airlines; but he refused to comply and did not give justifiable reasons.
Presiding Grade One Magistrate ruled that Senior Inspectorate Officer Rogers Kinobe proved that Muleya was actually in the Country at the time he was duly served with the IGG summons dated 23rd/May/2022, but chose to ignore it.
The Court declined to release his Passport as requested to travel to Equatorial Guinea next month for Business prospects.
The Magistrate instead informed him that the case against him is in advanced stages,and since he has a case to answer handing him his passport would delay the matter.
Court has set the 7th of October 2022 when he will start his defence.
He was the CEO until April 2021 when the minister of Works and Transport,Gen.Edward Katumba Wamala fired him with President Museveni ordering Investigations into corruption allegations.
