CRIME & INVESTIGATIONSLab technician who forged Covid-19 results for Matthew Kirabo arrested

Police in Jinja has arrested Razak Wasswa, the laboratory technician for forging Covid-19 test results of Mathew Kirabo, the prime suspect in the 2015 murder of Makerere University medical student Desire Mirembe.
Having missed two court sessions, Kirabo’s said he had contacted Covid-19 and therefore it was unwise for him to appear in public.
According to the lawyers, Kirabo had tested positive at Jinja Hospital and that he was therefore bedridden at the same hospital.

However, Charles Twiine- CID PRO, said police investigated the claim and discovered the test was fake.
“The test was fake, because even in the samples that were tested at Jinja hospital, there were no samples for Mathew Kirabo,” Twiine said.
Twiine explained that Razak Wasswa used his office to forge the positive test result for Mathew Kirabo.
“Even the person who they indicated that had tested Kirabo was not at the hospital physically on that day, Kirabo was also not there because his samples were never taken,” Twiine added.
Twiine has since revealed that Wasswa will be charged with forgery and abuse of office.
Police are now investigating whether Kirabo’s lawyers were involved in the forgery.
In one of the hearings Kirabo’s defense lawyers presented to court the covid 19 positive results, however Judge Henry Kaweesa objected to the results and issued a warrant of arrest to Kirabo.
On Wednesday, High Court in Mukono said that if Kirabo does not turn up for the next case hearing on November 17, 2021, his sureties will face arrest, including his mother Imedla Wabulengo.
