CRIME: Man Impersonates Mbabazi, Opens Account In Crane Bank
Kampala police have put into custody a 26-year-old man for reportedly impersonating Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi before opening a Bank account in the government official’s name.
Geoffrey Kimera, a resident of Nansana, Wakiso district was on Friday picked by detectives who stormed Crane Bank’s main branch along Kampala Road, where he had successfully opened a savings account in Mbabazi’s name.
According to Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Idi Ibin Ssenkumbi, police was tipped off by the bank’s management after getting suspicious of the customer’s intentions.
“We are investigating the motive of opening this account but we suspect that Kimera had intentions of using the account in a fraud mission that involved large sums of money,” says Ssenkumbi.
Ssenkumbi notes Kimera faces charges of impersonation.
