State Minister for Labor, Employment and Industrial relations Herbert Kabafunzaki has landed in fresh bitter soup with another bribery allegation of a South Korean investor.
Earlier on, the South Korean embassy wrote to the permanent secretary ministry of foreign affairs seeking for investigations into the conduct of Kabafunzaki.
According to a letter dated April 24, the Kabafunzaki reportedly arrested a South Korean investor Woo Junghoon who had declined to give him a bribe of USD 5000. Junghoon was later detained at the Central Police Station in Kampala for 5 hours.
It is said that Kabafunzaki ordered police officers not to release Junghoon until the said bribe had been paid.
The South Korean embassy and a group of lawyers later intervened and Junghoon was released.
These allegation follows the arrest of Minister Kabafunzaki for allegedly receiving a bribe of Shs 5 million from businessman Muhammed Hamid of Aya group.
However the Minister has denied these allegations saying that they are malicious and intended to tarnish his name.
