BUKOTO East MP John Alintuma Nsambu has camped at Entebbe international Airport, protesting the withholding of 144 computers by the Uganda Revenue Authority that is demanding US$720 in taxes, reports Milton Olupot.

Nsambu (right) spent Tuesday night at the tarmack next to the Entebbe Handling Services, where a sympathiser gave him a mattress to rest on. “I am not going to leave this place until the computers are released,” he said.

Nsambu said the computers arrived from Seattle in Washington six days ago and were on Tuesday cleared by URA. He said a team led by Dan Kalimuzo, a URA official, intercepted the computers, demanding over sh1m in taxes for the pieces of cloth used for wrapping the second-hand computers. The computers are a donation to schools in Masaka and Rakai districts.

“I asked them to let us deliver the computers then they can take the cloths but they refused,” he said.
