Kitagwenda district Principal Human Resource Officer Chris Ssozi Ganaafa has been interdicted over alleged embezzlement of over 67 Million shillings.
In a letter dated 23rd September 2021,the CAO puts it to Ssozi that he requested for the said funds in the second quarter of the FY 2020/2021 for activities which were not in the budget provisions.
The letter notes that Ssozi failed to account for the funds within the time he requested for in his letter dated 14th September 2021, while responding to CAO’s letter dated 8th September.
“As you are aware, this office wrote to you on 8thSeptember 2021, directing you to refund shs 67,271,500[Sixty Seven million Two hundred seventy one thousand five hundred shillings] which you requested for in the second quarter of FY 2020/2021 well knowing there was no budget provision for those activities as in my earlier communications,’’ The letter reads.
The letter further reads, “You remember very well that you had failed to account for various advances. However, you later submitted them and requested for leniency to have them verified. The verification established that the activities had not been budgeted for in the estimates of FY 2020/2021.”
It’s against this background that the Chief Administrative Officer ordered for the interdiction of Ssozi with immediate effect to pave way for further investigations into the matter.
While on interdiction, Ganaafa, will be entitled to half of his salary and he is not allowed to leave the country without the express permission from the relevant office.
