Ugandan Man Sentenced For Misusing COVID-19 Relief

Hassan Kanyike, 29, is in trouble in California after defrauding the Covid fund there of $1.3m, $762,000
of which he had already wired to Uganda when he was arrested as he seemed about to flee the country.

According to court documents, Hassan Kanyike, 29, of Santa Clarita, admitted that he submitted six fraudulent PPP loan applications and two fraudulent EIDL applications. The applications sought funds to purportedly pay the salaries of employees whom he claimed worked for two of his businesses. Kanyike successfully obtained approximately $1 million through four PPP loans, and another $300,000 through two EIDL loans.
