BY WILBER MUHWEZI AND CYNTIA ARINDA
Bushenyi chief magistrate has denied allegations that he is corrupt and should be transferred from his station as being demanded by district top leaders.
His worship Moses Katorogo said this on January 4th, 2017 at his office in an EXCLUSIVE interview with www.mknewslink.com editor.

In an interview with www.mknewslink.com reporter RDC Mugisha admitted having written the letter to Hon. Kahinda demanding the immediate transfer of the magistrate because of corruption and bribery.
Farmers also petitioned the RDC in a letter demanding the transfer of his worship Katorogo from Bushenyi because of releasing cattle thieves on bail after allegedly bribing him.
On the other hand, Katorogo told www.mknewslink.com editor today morning that bail is a constitutional right therefore there is no way he can deny to give it to suspects. He added that he is not bothered by these threats and meetings being organized by RDC Peter Mugisha and DISO Captain Paddy Baguma because he is doing his professional work.
Bushenyi magisterial area is composed of five districts that is Bushenyi, Sheema,Buhweju, Rubirizi and Mitooma. His worship Katoorogo is in charge of all judicial officials in the Bushenyi Greater sub-region.
His worship Katoorogo said “You found me having just told my secretary to call my staff for a meeting because they are being trailed by the RDC, DISO and other security officials who suspect them to be taking bribes which is not the case.”
He further said “I wanted to warn them of the impending plan to arrest them if found taking bribes as claimed by RDC and DISO”
