The Former principal accountant in the Office of the Prime minister, Geoffrey Kazinda, wrote a Sarcastic letter to the managing director of Standard Chartered bank, Herman Kasekende to go and visit him to jail. Kazinda faulted Kasekende for forgetting him when he went sent to Luzira four years ago.
In what looks like a coded message, Kazinda authoritatively addresses Mr Kasekende as a “friend”, as he castigates him for his failure to check him out in the prison.
So the question is what does a convict have on the Manager of Uganda’s second biggest bank?
Kazinda clearly directs the boss of one of Uganda’s most prestigious banks, to find him as soon as possible, in what sounded like a veiled threat.
Kazinda was convicted of corruption and abuse of office after it was discovered that money meant for the reconstruction of northern Uganda, was channelled to private accounts.
So Ugandans are left to speculate, Did Kasekende Help Kazinda? what is their Business arrangement, what does the letter imply? Given that Standard chartered by reputation is a bank for the money bags in Uganda,
It should also not be forgotten that Kasekende is on his second lease of life as Standard chartered MD having been suspended during the year. He also survived being fired.
A connection with Kazinda may not leave him standing, though.
