KABALE RDC ORDERS TOWN CLERK TO COUGH MISSING UGX 105M
By Ambrose Kweronda
Kabale Resident District Commissioner Godfrey Nyakahuma has ordered Ryakarimira town clerk Alex Ampeire to refund 105 million missing funds.
The money was meant for the construction of the town council administration block and rehabilitation of two roads.
Nyakahuma told www.mknewslink.com reporter yesterday that during his visit at Ryakarimira town council with the district internal security officer Lauben Mutabazi and deputy Resident district Commissioner Ronald Bakaki on Thursday this week, they found out that Ampeire withdrew the money from the town council bank account but never paid the contractor who is currently threatening to sue Kabale district local government over the unpaid money.
Nyakahuma added that Katwaaro – Kacerere and Ryakarimira – Kigarama – Mukyiyovu and Nyinashunju roads were never worked on in the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 financial years despite funds for the works being dispersed by the district two years ago.
Nyakahuma further noted that Ampeire could not explain the where about of the money prompting him to give the town clerk two weeks to refund the money.
However, Ampeire said that he used the money to work on other urgent projects of the town council although he could not name the projects in progress and on ground.
