Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has uncovered about 8000 mobile phones from a man who smuggled them into a room without clearance from authorities in Iganga.
the consolidation Centre tipped URA of a suspected smuggler who had stocked the phones without passing through the legal channels of the customs office.
The unrespecting suspect was surprised when authorities met him at the gate as he was moving out and sized his merchandise.
“On opening the gate, they were welcomed by unexpected guests”, one of the enforcers explained.
