Maverick lawyer Male Kiwanuka Mabirizi’s case against businessman Sudhir Ruparelia’s son is all but dead. Sudhir, and the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP)`s office have conspired to kill the case, the Investigator can authoritatively report.
We are privileged to reveal all that is there to reveal about this saga where the `mighty` tycoon has jumped into bed with the DPP to gag Mabirizi. In this matter, Sudhir`s son Rajiv Ruparelia stands accused of shamelessly extending the family’s synonymous land-grabbing escapades into Lake Victoria.
Mabirizi says Sudhir’s family, through Rajiv, did what he is accusing them of doing, by dumping trucks upon trucks of soil into the Lake Victoria at Kitubulu shores. He states the reason why the Sudhirs were turning the lake into a dumping ground. He avers they were looking to dubiously acquire extra land upon which to build an hotel.
Sudhir doesnt want the world to know this and other dirt. Yet Mabirizi is itching to take the witness box and reveal all the litter against the son and the family. So, the wealthy man has since contacted the DPP Jane Frances Abodo`s office to do the needful. And indeed, the DPP has subsequently asked Entebbe trial Magistrate, to hand the case to her.
The DPP told the Magistrate that her office wants to prosecute the case on behalf of Mabirizi. Of course, Mabirizi has never asked the DPP to prosecute his case. In any case, one would ask why is the DPP picking interest in this matter now, yet her office was doing virtually nothing before the patriotic Mabirizi brought the issue to the attention of court!
So, let the naïve believe the lie, but to those in the know, the DPP wants to save Rajiv from prosecution.Nothing less and or more to that! Indeed, the DPP has previously done as such many times, especially in cases involving the wealthy and highly connected criminal suspects.
In Investigator’s case, for example, the DPP infamously rescued Sudhir from prosecution over hacking into the social media accounts belonging to our CEO, Stanley Ndawula and other staff members. The DPP did so by secretly closing a case file loaded to the brim with water-tight evidence, revealing how the tycoon paid the hackers in this saga. “Close and put away,” she directed the Investigating Officer.
Certainly, Ndawula is of the unshakable view that he had made the work of the DPP easy by providing necessary evidence, leaving the Temple of Justice with no choice but to reprimand the businessman. He didso by arresting the hackers. The hackers went on to write statements with the CID at Kibuli via which they totally implicated Sudhir.
The hackers named Sudhir’s digital Personal Assistant, Ussa Segawa as the one who arranged the deal on behalf of Sudhir. And further, Ussa named Sudhir as the mastermind figure that assigned him the ugly project. The young man had colloborated all the evidence that the hackers had presented against him.
Do you know what? The DPP closed the case file secretly. She didn’t offer any kind of justication to Ndawula or his lawyers, for closing the file in the manner she did. This is not to mention that the lawyers of Muwema and Co. Advocates had kept in touch with her office all the time, seeking to know the process of the investigations!
