Stanbic bank has finally released the CCTV footage of an incident in which Water state minister Ronald Kibuule reportedly beat up their security guard for trying to search him.
The bank confirms that after receiving a court order from Mukono court, it released the footage to police.
On Saturday August 13, 2016, a group of about 6 police officers on 2 patrol pick-ups from Mukono Police Station under the command of the District Police Commander ASP Fred Ahimbisibwe arrested Ms. Hellen Obuku, a private security guard working with Security Group deployed at Stanbic Bank, Mukono.
Ms. Obuku was arrested and charged with the offence of libel at Mukono Police Station. She was later released on police bond.
Medical report signed by a medical doctor at Mukono Health Centre IV obtained indicates that she suffered bruises on the infrascapular area (below the shoulder blade) and the cubital fossa (the elbow pit) each measuring 4x4cms in size as a result of having been hit by a blunt object.
On August 31, 2016, a team of more that 6 people claiming to be emissaries of Mr. Kibuule approached Obuku and her family to mediate the case.
Yesterday, Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda said cabinet would investigate Kibuule’s conduct.
Then a new report emerged immediately after claiming the guard had reconciled with the minister.
Obuku’s sister Sarah Aboko told media there was a lot of politics around the case and was fearful for the sister’s life.
She claimed Kibuule’s opponents were trying to disgrace him but that the family had settled the matter with the minister.
On the other hand, Kibuule’s uncle Denis Lukyamuzi also cited a lot of politics saying they have now got a break since the families have chosen to reconcile.
Neither Kibuule nor Obuku have personally confirmed this development.
