Sub-County Chief Interdicted Over Misappropriation of Funds
Byakabanda Sub County Chief in Rakai district has been interdicted over misappropriation of road funds.
Elias Ssenyange was interdicted by Rakai Chief Administrative Officer Abdu Batambuze for alleged misappropriation of road funds amounting to 10 million shillings.
The money was meant for rehabilitation of three murram roads in Byakabanda Sub County.
The roads include Kagona- Budda, Kageye Kasika, and Kibinda –Kamukalwe.
Ssenyange’s interdiction followed an audit report that indicated that no road in his area of jurisdiction had been graded or rehabilitated yet road funds and some money of the LDGGrant had been used, which forced Batambuze to intervene interdicting Ssenyange.
Byakabanda Sub County District Representative Isaac Sserugo has welcomed the CAO’s decision to interdict Ssenyange saying that his actions have retarded development in the area.
Sserugo says he had been unfairly blamed for failing to solve the problem of poor roads yet Sseyange had misused the road funds.
He says that Ssenyange claimed that the roads had been graded and tabled a bill of 10 million shillings yet no work had been done on the roads.
