The bribe was part of Shs 50 million meant to help Jomo to evade payment of Shs 3 billion that he owes to the tax body. Jomo told journalists that he tipped off the State House Anti-corruption unit because he was fed of pressure from the URA officers.
"I decided to engage this Anti-corruption unit because am fed up of pressure from these URA who keep on approaching me for bribes yet I was given a period of three years to clear my tax arrears," he said.
President Yoweri Museveni unveiled the State House Anti-corruption unit during the commemoration of the World Anti-Corruption Day at Kololo Ceremonial grounds on December 10, 2018.
He said the unit, which is under Lt Col Edith Nakalema will work in collaboration with other government anti-corruption agencies to stamp out corruption. He asked government officers with corruption tendencies to quit or reform, saying they will not be spared.
