High court sitting in Mbarara yesterday led by Justice Tadeo Asiimwe ruled that it was a right decision to interdict Bushenyi Ishaka municipal treasurer Jackson Muhwezi Beyendeza, Engineer Deus Nuwagaba and Procurement officer Roberto Nuwagira.
While delivering his judgment Justice Asiimwe noted Bushenyi district service commission was right to interdict on the directives of the minister of local government the three senior because they had caused gross multi practice that included corruption and embezzlement.
Treasurer Beyendeza, Engineer Deus and procurement officer Roberto ran to court last year after their interdiction.
The interdiction of the three followed abuse of office by the treasurer stealing 104m shillings through forging of signatures.
The procurement officer gave 70% of the contracts in one year to one company in which he has shares.
The engineer had embezzled money for two quarters meant for the roads which he did not work on.
According to the deputy town clerk Didas Muhanguzi, they will consult the solicitor general to advise them on whether the three should be allowed back into offices since six months have elapsed or they start their interdiction.
