24 Nov 2023

KAMPALA: The former Managing Director of Uganda Railways Corporation, Stanley Sendegeya, has been remanded on charges of forgery and uttering false documents.

According to court documents, Sendegeya forged and presented fake documents before getting the railways’ topmost job.

Sendegeya was arraigned before the Buganda Road Chief Magistrates Court and the charges read to him.

Natasha Mariam, the State House Anti-Corruption Unit spokesperson, said Sendegeya was netted in an operation by the unit and the Criminal Investigations Directorate of the Uganda Police (CID) on November 22.

“Sendegeya is accused of forging and presenting documents proving that he had the requisite academic qualifications for the position of managing director, which he did not,” Mariam said.

Prosecution led by Judith Nyamwiiza said in July 2023, Sendegeya, a resident of Namugongo, Wakiso district, forged a curriculum vitae with intent to deceive, perpetuating that he held a master’s degree in business administration, which was not the case.

“During the same month, he offered false information to a recruitment firm at Lumumba Avenue named Delloit Uganda Ltd,” Nyamwiiza said.

He was remanded until November 27.
