According to the statement, he was advertising “fake foreign jobs on social media platforms like Facebook, promising to help them acquire handsomely paying jobs abroad.”

Police in the statement said that they had received over 37 reports of obtaining money by false pretense and they are currently filed at Katwe Police Station.

Lubowa joins another list of journalists accused scamming people with the most recent one being one Joel Isabirya who has for a while been accused of conning media students from different Universities in disguise of finding them jobs.

Its said that Isabirye uses hoax media houses that include Classic FM, Kawa FM and JTV that have helped maintain his slowly growing potbelly.
