Military trainer Arrested with Counterfeit Black USD 40,000 in Kampala

KAMPALA – Kampala police apprehended 36-year-old Kenneth Nkurunungi at Namayiba Bus Terminal on October 12, 2023, around 8 PM, seizing a small box containing counterfeit black dollars valued at USD 40,000.

Nkurunungi, a former UPDF staff member, retired officially in 2008 and presently serves as a military trainer in Juba, South Sudan.

Having returned to Uganda for a vacation on August 19, 2023, his extended stay led to his involvement in an alleged operation to transport the counterfeit currency to Juba via Classic Bus.

Instructed by Mr. Musa Adam of Juba, Nkurunungi claimed to meet an unknown individual near Total Katwe, where he received and handed over the sealed box to Classic Bus staff at Namayiba Bus Terminal.

However, complications arose, leading to police intervention, arrest, and the discovery of counterfeit black dollars.
