Buvuma accountant disappears with Shs 14m LC funds

The accountant disappeared with over

Buvuma district senior accountant Joseph Kisitu is reportedly on the run after swindling more than Shs 14 million meant for paying the allowances of LC I and II chairpersons. 

Buvuma chief administrative officer, Joseph Kisubi wrote to the district police commander on January 14, seeking his intervention to track down the missing officer. In his letter referenced "Disappearance of a civil servant with public funds", Kisubi explains that Kisitu received Shs 14,028,000 in May 2018, to pay honoraria allowances to LC1 and II in the 2017/2018 financial year. 

But to date, the officer has never provided accountability.

"Several verbal and written communications to Mr Kisitu Joseph (while he was still around and attending to duty) instructing him to account for or refund the money have been made, but without any success so far," reads the letter.
 
He explains that Kisitu promised before the district executive committee to refund the money within two week's time but that hasn't happened.

"The officer has disappeared from work and his known telephone numbers are all not available," the letter adds.

According to the letter, the principal assistant secretary, Ismael Kabonge, who deputises the chief administrative officer, went to Kisitu's home in Nabuti cell in Mukono cell but he wasn't there. He asked police to help track down the officer and recover the missing funds. The letter is copied to Buvuma LC V chairperson, Alex Mabirizi, resident district commissioner Agnes Nabirye and her deputy.

The chief thief, chief looter, chief swindler... is Museveni, yet he is free, why?

Museveni is allowed to pay off ribal leaders-youths-distribute money to any one... & just goes on ruling without opposition from Ugandans!

Ah! Of course, Museveni is not on the run as he owns Uganda & cannot be blamed for swindling what belongs to him, neither can he be defied nor opposed by Ugandans who are the migrants doing the necessary so that Museveni doesn't get mad at them & thorws them out of the country!

When Museveni will be no more, how many Ugandans will say hellow/smile to each other...when our people are bent on suppressing, harassisng, arresting, blocking...one another?

Why is Museveni allowed to steal, loot, swindle...freely, yet Ugandans ensure any of them who does so is arrested, punished?

Calm down Wainainci. Your boss planted the seeds and culture of corruption/grabbing.

Like an armed robber didn't Mr. M7 grab power from Obote/Lutwa? Thugs: once a thug by birth always a thug in life and death.

In other words, liars are liars, the corrupt are corrupt, thieves are thieves, thug are thugs, robbers are robbers, etc. because they are fundamentally incompetent in life's skills.

That is Mr. M7 and the NRM establishment: An organized crime syndicate.
