KABALE, UGANDA: The Minister of State for Economic Monitoring Beatrice Akello Akori had directed for the immediate arrest of Mr Francis Tibemanya, the Principal of Kabale Technical Institute over maladministration and mismanagement of funds at the government institution.

Minister Akello made the directive on Thursday, May 11, while visiting the institution as part of monitoring activities in Kigezi Sub-region.

Mr Tibemanya is accused of allegedly embezzling funds meant for tools used in practical lessons, using uncouth behaviour towards students and mistreatment of instructors at the institute.

There have been numerous demonstrations by both instructors and students demanding accountability for the money they have paid over the years for the purchase of a school truck, iron sheets, hoes and textbooks but all in vain.

Minister Akello said that she had received several complaints against the principal that have slowed down the performance of the students and total reduction of the number of students at the institute.

The minister said that she was reliably informed that the principal was allegedly receiving money from students through his mobile phone number purported to be for buying the institute’s bus which forced Ms Akello to direct the Kabale Resident District Commissioner Godfrey Nyakahuma to immediately arrest Tibemanya and investigate him for the messes that have marred the institute.

The Kabale municipal mayor Emmanuel Sentaro Byamugisha and Nyakahuma said that they had several meetings to engage the principal and harmonize the situation but all in vain. They commended the directive of the minister saying that it will help to calm down the situation at the institute.

Efforts to get a comment from Mr Tibemanya were futile because he did not attend the engagement meeting with the minister and his known phone numbers could not go through.
