Two top officials of Bulambuli district are in trouble for alleged mismanagement of Shillings 50 million. 

They are Judith Nagudi, the Bulambuli Chief Accountant and District Education Officer, Abraham Wagwasala.  

The two were locked up when they went to record statements on the said money. 

They are accused of conniving with the former Chief Administrative Officer, Lawrence Wadada to withdraw Shillings 50 Million from the district account in July last year for personal gain.  

The money was meant for coding a primary school in a resettlement camp in Bunambutye district and paying the allowances of teachers. 

The suspects are also believed to have bought an exam printing machine worth Shillings 4 million instead of the Shillings 16 million they requested for.   

Peter Pex Paak, the Bulambuli Resident District Commissioner, says he ordered for an audit following reports about the money, which implicated the three officials. 

He says police summoned the officials to record a statement, where they claimed that the former CAO borrowed the money with promises of paying it back in vain.
