Police in Bushenyi district has arrested a 40-year-old former teacher of Kitwe Primary school on allegations of forgery.

Justus Turyamureeba, who retired in 2014 is accused of submitting forged documents to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer Bushenyi, in an effort to claim for payments from the District Service Commission, as though he was still in active service.

According to Bushenyi District Chief Administrative Officer Malik Mahaba, Turyamureeba retired following several complaints of sexual harassment against him.  However, although he received his retirement package, he took advantage of the posting of the new Chief Administrative Officer to submit documents indicating that he was still in active service and had not been paid salaries to a tune of  4.6 million shillings.

Turyamureba has since then received over 20 million Shillings from the district illegally.
