Bunyangabu District Finance Boss Accused of Embezzlement

Remegious Turyahabwe, the Rwiimi Sub-county LC V councilor, says Kaija collected money from November 16, 2016 to August 2017 and deposited it on her personal account instead of banking it on the account of Kasunganyanja health center.

Amina Kaija, the Bunyangabu District Finance, Planning and Administration Secretary is in trouble for alleged misappropriation of more than Shillings 30 million.

 

District councilors claim that during her tenure as Kasunganyanja Health Centre Management Committee Chairperson, Kaija, rented 15 acres of land belonging to the facility to private individuals and also planted four acres of bananas, which she sold and pocketed the proceeds.

Remegious Turyahabwe, the Rwiimi Sub-county LC V councilor, says Kaija collected money from November 16, 2016 to August 2017 and deposited it on her personal account instead of banking it on the account of Kasunganyanja health center.

He explains that at the end of her tenure as Kasunganyanja Health Centre Management Committee chairperson, Kaija only presented Shillings 4 million instead of Shillings 30 million.

 

Kaija rubbishes the claims, saying she only rented the land twice during her one-year term at Shillings 120,000 per acre and also sold some bunches of matooke to raise the money she declared to council early this month.

She also defended her decision to open an account in her name, saying the health facility had no account for the project.

Cue Out: In charge Kayondo,"//

She explained that in February this year she transferred the money from the joint account to the Primary Healthcare belonging to the hospital. 

Sulait Tusiime, the LC V councilor Kibiito Town Council, says it was wrong for Kaija to bank money from a public project onto her private account.

 

He asked Kaija to refund all the money because it is not possible that she only collected Shillings 4 million. Kaija laughed off the allegations and asked her colleagues to desist from immature politics.

Cue Out:….I can't tell,"//

Turyahabwe insists that Kaija should cough the money or face severe consequences.

//Cue in: Government money...  

Cue Out: she has no financial discipline,"//
