The Dean of students Gulu University-Mutwale Mpora Christopher has been remanded to Gulu central Prisons on three charges of theft, forgery and uttering a false document.
This stems from a case in which he is accused of stealing 3, 560,000 shillings from a centenary Bank Account on 15 June 2020 at Gulu Branch, an account he jointly owns with his business partner-Alou Mildred Anena.
Mpora is accused of forging a centenary bank withdrawal form to withdraw the money from account number 3202401061 in the name of Goma Oil Energy.
He is accused of uttering a false document contrary to section 351 of the penal code Act when he knowingly and fraudulently uttered a false document to forge the withdrawal form on the 15, June 2020 at centenary bank Gulu branch.
Mpora and Anena are said to have ventured into petrol station business in March 2020 at Koch Goma Sub county where Mpora had 60 % shares while Anena had 40% shares.
The two however disagreed after Mpora withdrew the money without her notice and she was informed through a phone message alert.
This led to his arrest but he was later released on bond on June 2, 2020 and asked to return to court on July 30, 2020 but he jumped the bond.
Mpora was rearrested last Wednesday and today charged with the three crimes. He was remanded until April 15, 2021 by Grade One Magistrate, Christine Turibamwe.
