Sudanese arrested for forging passports

30 April 2015, 15:02 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Uganda immigration department under internal affairs ministry is holding a Sudanese and a Ugandan whom they accuse of forging passports.

Salim Muhamad, a Sudanese and William Kawugu, a Ugandan, were arrested from their Zahaha tours and Travel office on Zainab Aziza building but their accomplice, Abdul Wahab Muyombo is reportedly on the run.

According to the Deputy publicist for immigration department, Benjamin Katana, the duo have been forging Local council (LC) stamps, resident district commissioner (RDC) stamps and other authorities stamps and signatures required in the process of obtaining a passport.

''They were collaborating with some people in the passport office. They would submit application forms endorsed by fake stamps to the internal affairs ministry for issuance of the passports,'' he said, noting that they have overwhelming evidence to pin the two men.

He said that police impounded on evidence from their office which include forged internal affairs stamps, LC stamps, 49 passports, 8 Yellow fever certificates among others.

He encouraged the public to desist from dealing with the so called passport brokers because they are not authorized, and explained that at least those with the national Identity card shall now be exempted from some steps in the lengthy process of obtaining a passport.

Uganda is among the countries with many cases of passport forgery. Apart from local passports, diplomatic passports are also forged.

Recently, some Nigerians were nabbed in Asia with forged Ugandan passports.
