Former minister Bakoko returns from exile



Former Gender, Labour and Social development minister Zoe Bakoko Bakoru will return home on Friday after 9 years in exile.

Ms Bakoru fled the country after criminal charges were sanctioned against her in the $4.7m (shs13b) National Social Security Fund (NSSF) housing scandal.

In February 2007, Margaret Tibulya, the then Buganda Road Chief Magistrate, issued arrest warrants for Bakoko, businessman, Isabirye Mugoya and former NSSF Managing Director, Leonard Mpuuma for snubbing summons to respond to charges of causing a financial loss to NSSF.

However, Ms Bakoko fled to exile.

It was not until a meeting between the former Ayivu county MP and Mr Museveni in the United States last year that she decided to return.

It is reported that during the meeting, Ms Bakoko was disappointed and felt let down by the people she worked with because she never had the time to reach the President and tell him what happened.

She also apologised to the president and thus her wish to return was granted.
