The   Anti- Corruption Court has summoned Geoffrey Onegi- Obel, the former NSSF board chairman over the botched Nsimbe Housing Estate deal.


Chief Magistrate Sarah Langa Siu on Friday summoned Onegi - Obel to appear before the court on February14.

"You  are  hereby  commanded  by the  government  of  Uganda  to  appear in  court  on the  14th   February , 2014 at 9:00am  or as soon thereafter  as  the case will  be  heard,"  reads the summon in part.

The  summon  followed  the  Constitutional  Court ruling  that recently  threw  out  Onegi- Obel's  petition challenging his prosecution and directed  the Anti-  Corruption  Court  to resume  the trial.

Onegi-Obel is accused of causing a loss of sh8b in the botched Nsimbe Housing Estate deal and abuse of office. He petitioned the Constitutional Court in 2011 challenging his prosecution by the Inspectorate of Government.

Langa issued  the  summons after Sydney  Asubo the director of legal affairs  from Inspectorate of  Government  told court on Friday that  the IGG  was ready  with evidence  to prosecute Onegi- Obel.

The IGG said he committed the offences between 2004 and 2005.
