Chen Chao, the director and chairman of Entec Electric Company, based in Tororo, dragged Hu Zheheng, his former country manager, and Zhang Jun, a former salesman, to court for fraudulently obtaining registration for the same company as directors.

Furthermore, Hu Zheheng and Zhang Jun, both Chinese businessmen, are charged with obtaining registration for Entec Electrical Equipment Company by falsely pretending that they were the sole proprietors of the said company.

Below is the court document

It is alleged that the two used a strict COVID-19 period and the absence of the Director General, Chen Chao, to fraudulently register themselves with the Uganda Registration Service Bureau (URSB) as the directors of Entec Electrical Equipment Company Limited.

The prosecution contends that the accused persons committed the offense on June 27, 2017 at the Uganda Registration Services Bureau offices in Kampala when they willfully procured registration as the only subscribers of Entec Electrical Equipment Company Ltd.

In conclusion, this is after the resident state attorney at Buganda Road Court, Joan Keko, informed the court that investigations into this case are still ongoing.
