By Nelson Twinamatsiko
Fr.Charles Ndagijimana; a priest at Kyamuhunga parish In Bushenyi district is in trouble for allegedly diverting shs73m/= compensated to Ryantede sub-parish church.
It is alleged that Ryantende sub-parish church was compensated sh 73million after allowing Mota Engil Construction Company to use the church land for three years.
The Portuguese Mota Engil construct company which was contracted to work on Ishaka-Kasese Road entered into an agreement with Roman Catholics of Ryantende Church to use the church land for three years and later build a new church structure on the same land in addition to a compensation of sh.73million.
According to the petition by the church members which the www.mknewslink reporter has seen, Fr.Charles Ndagijimana allegedly pocketed the money and later deposited it on his personal bank account.
In the meeting in which the chrisitians were demanding for accountability which sat on 17.6.2017 and was lead by Chairman of the parish Varelian Bamuhiga and Stella Kyohairwe told the Christians that the money was to be divided between Kyamuhunga parish and Ryantende Center but each of them disagreed with the idea.
According to former parish chairman Emmanuel Muhebwa,who signed memorandum of understanding with Mota engil company the money was budgeted to reconstruct the church the structure and a pit latrine since the company demolished the church structure.
He further revealed that sh.70m, was budgeted to build the church while sh.3m was meant to be subscribed to the diocese but Fr. Ndagijiimana did none of both.
Fr.Ndagijimana could not be found for a comment when he failed to receive our www.mknewslink reporter’s repeatedly phone calls.
