Denis Namisi the Bulambuli District Youth Chairperson blames the YLP Focal Point Persons for not involving the district youth leadership in the sensitizing the youth in regard to the recovery of funds.
The district disbursed over 419 million Shillings to finance activities of 82 youth groups under the program in 2014. However, to date, only 77 million Uganda Shillings has been recovered from only of56 groups. Members of the other groups that benefited from the funding cannot be tracked
The suspects are John Peter Edilu, 25, a member of Olumai youth piggery project and William Egwanyu, 28, the group chairperson. Its reported that the youth received a total of five million Shillings to finance the purchase of 10 piglets but reportedly shared it amongst themselves.
Julius Mukunda, The Chief Executive Director of the Civil Society Budget Advocacy Group, says the creation of the said vote appears to be a deliberate attempt of handing over the Youth development programs from the mainstream ministries to the president who has been recently shown interest in ditching money to several youth groups majorly in Kampala Metropolitan.
