SENIOR presidential adviser on defence Gen. Caleb Akandwanaho, also known as Salim Saleh, has dismissed media reports that he is among the wealthiest men in the country.

A local tabloid yesterday reported that Saleh earns a monthly salary of sh150m and that he is the proprietor of a private security firm, Saracen, Spencon Construction, Techno Relief Services and Effort Corporation.

Saleh described himself as a social entrepreneur, saying he had given his land in Bulemezi to the local communities for agricultural projects.

“I do not belong to the class of Sudhir and the media should stop speculating.

You are placing me with the bourgeoisie. If The Red Pepper keeps putting me with people I am not part of, then something will be done,” he told journalists in Kampala yesterday.
Saleh said he rents a house in Kampala from Capt. John Kassami, a director of Royal Daisy, a local airline company.

He said his properties include 6sqm of land in Mbarara, 3sqm in Bulemezi, 10 acres in Njeru and 32 acres in Wakiso.
“I also have an external account in HSBC Bank in the UK, which has been holding £2,000 since 2001. I do not own any credit card.”

Saleh also dismissed reports that he holds shares in The Red Pepper.
