FULL LIST: Museveni pardons former PS Lwamafa, 199 other prisoners

Former ministry of Public Service permanent secretary Jimmy Lwamafa, former director for research and development Stephen Kunsa and former principal accountant Christopher Obey arrive at the Anti-Corruption Court in Kampala in 2015

Kampala, (UG): President Yoweri Museveni has pardoned 200 prisoners including former Permanent Secretary at Public Service, Jimmy Lwamafa one of the accused in the Shs88.2 billion case

The Uganda Prison Services Spokesperson, Frank Baine, confirmed the development in a press statement released today, Monday, August 28, 2023.

Mr Baine says, Lwamafa, specifically, has been pardoned by the President on account of old age and good behavior.

“He is over 65 years old and he falls in the category of the elderly. In addition, he has been not well and he qualifies to be released under the terminally ill grounds,” Baine said.

He explained that all the pardoned inmates would return to their respective homes by the end of Tuesday.

In November 2016, the Anti-Corruption Court sentenced former PS Lwamafa, Stephen Kiwanuka Kunsa (former commissioner in charge of pensions), and Christopher Oby (principal accountant in the pensions section) guilty of having fraudulently budgeted Shs 88.2 billion as the National Social Security Fund in the financial years 2010/2011 and 2011/2012, very well knowing that civil servants don’t contribute to the NSSF.

President Museveni in his capacity as the head of state is entrusted with the power to pardon inmates under article 121 (1) (a) of the constitution of the Republic of Uganda, 1995, as amended on the advice of the Advisory Committee on the Prerogative of Mercy.

Over the years, Mr Museveni has been pardoning prisoners usually at the end or start of the year.

Early this year, Mr Museveni set free the 79 inmates on January 3rd although the Prisons Service has been processing their release documents.
