Rwakimari arrived at CID headquarters- Kibuli – in the morning hours in compliance with summons issued to her last Friday.

A source says detectives tasked Rwakimari to explain why she tendered fake documents before the 2005 Justice Ogoola commission.

Ogoola was appointed by President Yoweri Museveni to lead an inquiry into abuse of Global Funds earmarked for treatment and counselling of HIV/Aids and Malaria victims.

“During the Ogoola commission, you brought forward forged receipts showing how Shs76m was used. But after an investigation in Ntungamo, we found that this money did not reach the intended beneficiaries,” a detective told Rwakimari.

The huge sum of money was reportedly offered to the legislator by Appropriate Revival for Strategic Empowerment – ARISE, a non-governmental organisation.

However, in her defense, Rwakimari admitted receiving the cash but was not involved in its distribution and oversight at grass root level.

She says junior officials in the district have the best answers to CID’s questions!

Rwakimari added that the receipts were given to her by officials who were supposed to implement the project.

She was told to return to CID offices next Thursday.
