Captain Dan Byakutaga is a former UPDF army officer who at the time of his disappearance in July 2000 was a Paymaster of the army.
Byakutaga disappeared with US$1,055,555 (about sh1.9 billion Uganda shillings) salary for soldiers who were then in operation the Democratic Republic of Congo.
From the time of his disappearance, no one has caught wind of Byakuya’s whereabouts with his family maintaining that Dan Byakutaga must be dead.
Sources from the Uganda People’s Defence forces have on several occasions hinted that Byakutaga is alive and hiding in the USA but no solid evidence has ever been tabled.
In 2000 two senior UPDF officers went missing under very suspicious circumstances including both Dan Byakutaga and former director of finance, Capt. Charles Nkurunungi.
Nkurunungi is currently living in the USA.
