FORMER managing director of National Social Security Funds (NSSF) has been released on bail pending his appeal.
The Anti-Corruption Court early this year convicted Jamwa of causing financial loss of sh3bn to Uganda workers who save money with NSS.
Justice John Bosco Katutsi, formerly of the Anti- Corruption Court sentenced Jamwa to serve 12 years imprisonment and barred him from holding any public office for 10 years after that.
In a ruling delivered by Assistant Registrar Alex Ajiji , Justice Augustine Nshimye of Court of Appeal said he was satisfied that if granted bail Jamwa wil not abscond his trial.
â€œI have no doubt that the applicant, if released will not be tempted to abscond, but remain around to persue his appeal to the end,â€ Nshimye said.
Justice Nshimye said cash bail of sh10m deposited at the Anti- Corruption Court where Jamwa was tried will be treated as a deposit in Court of Appeal.
