Former Ugandan Member of Parliament (MP), Tony Nsubuga Kipoi, who is accused of swindling four people P290 000 landed at Kampala’s Entebbe Airport today (Saturday) under heavy security escort where he is due to be tried for treason at the country’s General Court Martial.
Kipoi who has been linked to several drug trafficking and theft cases in South Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo is said to have since jumped bail and fled Uganda while awaiting prosecution for several cases, including treason and theft.
The former legislator for Bubulo West in Uganda who had a short stint in a Ugandan prison back in 2012, was arrested in Gaborone recently after he allegedly swindled his victims out of more than P290, 000 by posing as a traditional doctor.
Court heard that between September last year and the 20th of January 2018 at Molepolole village, Kipoi, fraudulently obtained P109, 000 from one Silvia Nonofo Mmutlwane, who works as a nurse at Bokaa clinic.
He is said to have masqueraded as a ‘witch doctor’ promising Mmutlwane he would cast a spell to ensure she gets married soon.
Kipoi is also accused of selling one Thabea Kebalese Modisapoo a ‘magic wallet’ for P3, 000, which he claimed was enchanted and would increase Modisapoo’s money.
Back in May 2017, Kipoi is further accused of deceitfully obtaining P175, 000 from one Boitshoko Moloi a teacher at Hatsalatladi, by claiming he could cast a spell to multiply Moloi‘s money.
Finally, on the 1st of February this year in Mogoditshane, Kipoi, with the intent to defraud, obtained P7, 000 from one Tshepo Mogomotsi by promising to cast a spell to guarantee the victim ‘gets employed quickly’.
