Daily Post days ago reported on a leaked document showing Kasekende’s wife Edith as transacting millions of shillings in a city bank, which would later come out in a press statement to say that the leaked document was fake.

Edith runs an Easy Go account at StanChart Bank number 01001116xxxx, which is used to transact hundreds of millions of shillings.

However, investigator are working to trace the source of this money which is transacted through her account, because she is not known to own any business venture that can accrue several millions of shillings within a short period of time.

A source at the Bank says Edith receives questionable deposits of Shs1.6 billion from BoU which she pays back after making a profit. A source says Edith and other people, including her husband Kasekende could be using BoU’s liquid cash to boost their daily businesses and then send back the money back before it is detected.
