Uganda: Mukula Bail Application for Friday

Jailed Soroti Municipality MP Mike Mukula bail application will be heard on Friday.

The former health state minister had wanted the High Court in Kampala to consider his application today but Court pushed the hearing to Friday.

He was sentenced to four years in prison last week after the Anti-corruption Court found him guilty of embezzling sh210m from the Global Alliance Vaccination for Immunization (GAVI) funds. Sh1.6b was lost in the GAVI scam.
