state House has issued a warning to the public about scammers posing as its workers in order to defraud gullible Ugandans.

“Our attention has been directed to a letter supposedly addressed by the Deputy Principal Private Secretary to the President Janet Mbabazi to the Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “This is to warn the public against scammers like these who are out to defraud naïve Ugandans,” State House stated in a statement.

According to State House, an individual posing as the president’s deputy Principal Private Secretary may have scammed a large number of people.

“To handle this matter, we are employing all diplomatic channels through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.” Security services are also looking into the incident with the goal of apprehending and prosecuting the perpetrators.”

In the past, a number of con artists and fraudsters have exploited the State House moniker to defraud members of the public of their property, including money and land.

Many of these con artists have stolen land, while others have committed crimes with impunity while working for State House.

In July, State House announced that scammers had targeted government personnel, requesting personal information in exchange for Covid relief aid.

The scammers wrote emails to various government officials, stating that State House had put in place a relief strategy aimed at equipping government employees to absorb pandemic shocks, as directed by the president.

Nabusayi Lindah Wamboka, President Museveni’s Senior Press Secretary, stated the emails were false and intended to defraud naïve government personnel.

She warned government officials from sending their personal information to the aforementioned email because the State House does not have such a program for any government ministries, departments, or agencies.

“Do not register when prompted. The email should be handled with suspicion and, if possible, deleted because it could be used in a phishing scheme. “Don’t give out any personal information,” Nabusayi said.
