Former Kabale Municipal Human Resource Officer arrested

RDC Nyakahuma said that after investigations, Mugyendesa will be charged with cases of causing financial loss to the government.

KABALE, UGANDA: The former Kabale municipality human resource officer Beddah Mugyendesa has been arrested for allegedly causing financial loss to the government by inflating the number of civil servants.

Speaking to DailyExpress yesterday evening, the Kabale Resident District Commissioner Mr Godfrey Nyakahuma said that Mugyendesa (who recently transferred his services to Rukungiri District Local Government) was arrested and is currently in detention at Kabale Central Police Station.

Nyakahuma added that after investigations, Mugyendesa will be charged with cases of causing financial loss to the government.

Last Month, the State minister for Economic monitoring in the office of President Beatrice Akello Akori ordered the arrest of Ms Mugyendesa and the accountant in charge of salaries Gideon Ahebwomugisha over the alleged inclusion of ghost teachers on the government payroll of Kabale municipality.

The matter came to the limelight when Nyakahuma reported to the minister that security led by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) was investigating the alleged inflation of civil servants to access the government payroll by Mugyendesagye and Ahebwomugisha.

The Kabale municipal town clerk Justine Barekye told this website that about 28 ghost civil servants were discovered last month as they continue to thoroughly ascertain the number of ghost workers enrolled on the payroll by the accused officers.
