Netball Federation boss Kityo gets temporal freedom after securing bail

Uganda Netball Federation (UNF) president Sarah Babirye Kityo was on Wednesday granted bail, two days after being charged with defamation and obtaining money by false pretence.

Kityo attended the bail application that was heard at the Buganda Road court in Kampala by Grade One Magistrate Siena Owomugisha.

Together with her co-accused businesswoman, Zainab Namutebi, they will re-appear in court again on June 6.

Court ordered Kityo to pay a one million shillings cash bond, while her two sureties were asked to pay a non-cash bond of four million shillings each.

Kityo was arrested after two women, Sarah Wamala and Gloria Kikomeko, reported to police that they had each paid eight million shillings to Kityo and her Namutebi for their travel to the USA along with the She Cranes.

Wamala claims she paid Kityo to take her daughter to the United States of America, while Nantambi alleges that she paid them to take her to the same country.

Initially, Kityo had been handed over to the Police’s Criminal Investigations Department (CID) by Parliament over alleged mismanagement of funds.

At the moment, the embattled administrator is out of the office of UNF presidency for three months, with Brigadier Falvia Byekwaso in charge in the interim.
