The Minister of Gender, Labour, and Social Development, Betty Amongi, has been dragged to court by former National Social Security Fund (NSSF) managing director, Mr. Richard Byarugaba.

According to a suit before the Kampala High Court, Byarugaba is accusing Amongi of failing to endorse his re-appointment for a third term of office.

Byarugaba says for the period he has been at the helm of the fund, he has demonstrated exceptional stewardship in technology, innovation, and customer appreciation on top of transforming the fund to a tune of over 2, 000, 000 members with management assets reaching 1.7 trillion shillings, and therefore he is fit for re-appointment.

Additionally, He further accuses the minister of ignoring the IGG’s report, which cleared him of these crafted allegations and vindicated the NSSF board’s report that he is fit for re-appointment due to his previous performance in office.

He wants orders to quash the minister’s letter and directive to the board dated June 30, 2023, and compel her to discharge her statutory duty and complete his appointment as the Fund’s managing director.

However, Byarugaba further accuses Minister Amongi of acting with animosity and bias, alleging that she assumed the role of an accuser, investigator, prosecutor, and judge when she leveled allegations of financial impropriety against him.

In conclusion, Uncoveredug.com understands that Byarugaba’s term of office expired in November 2022.
