Police in Kwania district have arrested two women on allegation of defrauding people claiming to have the capacity to print money.  

The suspects have been identified as Semmy Ejang aka Semmy Opio Modek, the NRM Woman League Chairperson for Kwania District and one Gloria Kali Akello

They are all residents of Aduku Township cell in Teduka ward, Aduku Town Council.

Edith Basalirwa, the Kwania District Police Commander said the suspects defrauded Lydia Abuk, who represents Persons with Disability- PDWs at Aduku Town Council Shs.3.5 million, and two unidentified politicians from Inomo Sub County Shs. 4.5 million.

The suspects reportedly promised to print for them real money in order to use it during their campaigns to canvas for votes. The victims were duped to first make payment.

Basalirwa said the duo is detained at Kwania Central Police Station and a case of obtaining money by false pretense is registered against them under SD ref. 13/4/8/2020 pending investigation.

“These women were conniving with some unknown thugs who we are looking for. They deceived victims that their money would be multiplied. They defrauded the politicians, and I think this group has defrauded very many people claiming that they print real money,” said Basalirwa.

Lydia Abuk, one of the victims also vying for Kwania District LCV Disable representative said her money was dubbed in the guise of producing real money. Adding that she only realized that she has been duped when the women disappeared with the money.
