Spero Byokunda, the head of Petroleum in the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development, has been summoned to appear in the City Hall Magistrates Court to address accusations of defrauding a Serbian investor. Byokunda, alongside businessman Emmanuel Byamukama, faces charges of forgery and conspiracy related to their interactions with LJuba Samardzic, who sought to initiate an energy-related project.

The court has summoned Byokunda and Byamukama, along with five others, to appear on November 10th to answer charges, including forgery and conspiracy. The group faces allegations of fabricating documents to mislead the investor about the supply of LED-based solar streetlights from the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development.

They were remanded until the scheduled court appearance on November 10th due to their inability to provide substantial sureties.
