EBBO Sacco Mbarara branch has been accused of stealing government land.
The land in question is in Bwizibwera Upper cell Kashari North constituency, Mbarara district and it is approximately 10 acres.
According to Didas Tabaro the chairman LC V Mbarara district, in 2004 EBBO Sacco management used false offers from the then district leadership in order to develop the said land.
Tabaro told www.mknewslink.com reporter that he has already ordered the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Mbarara district Mr. Edward Kasagara to investigate why EBBO Sacco management is insisting on developing the land.
“I have therefore tasked the Chief Administrative Officer to establish the reasons as to why EBBO Sacco management is trying to develop government land illegally and we shall have a meeting with stake holders on the matter” Tabaro noted.
Godfrey Mbetegyerize the Resident District Commissioner Mbarara district refused to comment on the matter noting that it is not a security threatening matter thus doesn’t call for his full attention.
When www.mknewslink.com approached one Nuwabiine the EBBO Sacco Western regional manager, he distanced himself from the matter on grounds that he can’t comment on the matter since the financial institution has a Chief Executive Officer.
