The Bushenyi Chief Administrative Officer this week extended the special investigations against the Bushenyi Ishaka interdicted treasurer on grounds that the special auditor Samuel Kamwesiga found a lot of work and diet which could not be completed in one week.
According to credible sources, Samuel Kamwesiga the acting principal internal auditor who is doing the investigations found a lot of diet that needed to be exposed, he therefore asked for more two days ; Monday 1st June and Tuesday 2nd June then take the report to the CAO on Tuesday evening.
The terms of reference for the special audit against Jackson Muhwezi Beyendeza were two; to investigate 194 million swindled in the first quarter of the financial 2019/20.
The 194 million shillings is local revenue advance from Ministry of finance to Bushenyi Ishaka municipality so that municipality would collect and pay it back.
Muhwezi single handedly distributed the 194 million to departments but gave 85 million to his finance department and some departments never received any share.
Muhwezi wrongly distributed the money which minister Magyezi described as a man distributing pieces of meat in his family though it was government money.
The three Divisions never got their shares and they are wondering why, as they are the ones to collect the trading licence,local service tax and property tax which is supposed to pay back the debt.
The second term of reference to the special auditor is the 91 million which was allegedly swindled by Beyendeza in 2014/15 financial year after he forged signatures of his fellow heads of departments and town clerks ,withdrew the money then used it for his personal issues.
The forging of signatures has been ongoing up to the time he was interdicted in March.
Beyendeza was arrested on 12th May and released on police bond on 19th May 2020 after the police requested the CAO to carry out a special audit on 194m and 91 m which was allegedly swindled by the treasurer.
