David Jamwa in court on Monday

Embattled Former National social security fund (NSSF) managing director David Chandi Jamwa has this morning taken another step in fight for Justice.

Jamwa who on Monday lost his appeal against the 12-year jail sentence given to him by the Anti-corruption court has run to the Supreme Court to challenge the court of Appeal’s ruling.

Through his lawyer David Mpanga, Jamwa notifies court that he is dissatisfied with the decision of justices; Rubby Opio Aweri and Kenneth Kakuru of upholding and confirming the Anti-corruption court conviction and sentence.

In the notice of appeal, Jamwa says he is also aggrieved with the 2 justices decision of re-evaluating evidence from the Anti-corruption court, convicting him of abuse of office and consequently sentencing him to serve a 4 years imprisonment term.

In their majority judgement court of appeal read by Justice Kenneth Kakuru on Monday, Justices, Rubby Opio Aweri and Kenneth Kakuru also convicted Jamwa of abuse of office, a charge he had been acquitted of by the Anti-corruption court.

The Anti-Corruption Court meted out the 12-year imprisonment sentence to former NSSF managing director after he was convicted of causing a financial loss of sh3billion shillings to the fund, and dropped the abuse of office charge.
