Dixon Kagurusi is not a director of Petrom Limited- Lawyer Speaks Out


David Kamukama, a lawyer to city Journalist and entrepreneur, Dixon Kagurusi Ampumuza has come out to dispel rumours that his client is a director of Petrom Limited, one of the companies that was involved in a syndicated move to siphon over USD1.8m from a Stanbic Bank account of Nile Energy Ltd.

Speaking to our correspondent, Kamukama of Byamugisha Advocates said that Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga erred when he read out his client’s name during the Monday press briefing indicating that he (Kagurusi) is a director in one of the companies (Petrom Limited) involved in the fraud case.

“My client is a law abiding and hardworking citizen. We are therefore shocked that police is citing him as a director of Petrom Limited.

Kagurusi has been pursing a Master’s Degree in International Relations at Makerere University where his research is; “Understanding Key Drivers in Illicit Financial Flows” and therefore he can be an asset to this nation,” Kamukama said.

A simple company search done by our family lawyer proves otherwise,” the family member said before showing us proof.

Company documents at URSB filed in 2019 show that Oscar Rapheal Lutaaya is the sole director of the company.

This therefore dispels any rumours that Dixon Kagurusi Ampumuza is a director in Petrom Limited.

We shall keep you posted.
