Activists born from Kyamuhunga town council led by Andy Yellow have raised a red flag against the Engineer and chairman LCIII Musa Bikanya for being corrupt.
www.mknewslink.com managing editor met Andy yellow carrying a receipt of 2.8 million without an official stamp which is an evidence of stealing money at the town council.
The money in question was meant to build a kiosk at Mashonga trading Centre in Kyamuhunga town council.
According to the town clerk Kyamuhunga Gilbert Boona, the town council received 2.8 million from a person who wanted a kiosk in Mashonga but Gilbert Boona ordered the accountant to give the money back to the trader since it was not allowed as per local government laws.
He said that he was against the decision by the council to allocate the place in question at Mashonga for commercial purpose but rather preferred it as a green belt.
The town clerk added that on the issue of finances getting misused in Kyamuhunga town council especially the Mashonga Kiosks, tarmac road in Butaare among other projects, the head of internal audit Samuel Kumwesiga is already doing an special audit for Kyamuhunga town council which will lead to the next action; whether to push the civil servants or clear them.
According to the LCIII chairman Musa Bikanya, they have abandoned the council resolution to build kiosks at Mashinga trading Centre instead they have agreed to turn the place into a green belt as suggested by the town clerk.
www.mknewslink.com visited the head of internal audit Samuel Kumwesiga and he was told that he is doing a special audit on Kyamuhunga town council and he will produce a report in three weeks’ time.
Samuel Kumwesiga is known for producing professional audit reports; his recent special audit report pinned the former municipal treasurer Jackson Muhwezi Beyendenza who had forged signatures of his bosses and colleagues to steal public money.
He was retired in public interest after anti- corruption court convicted him and asked him to pay back over 200 million shillings.
