Kikuube LC5 Vice Chairman arrested over extortion

Kikuube, (UG):- In a shocking turn of events, Kikuube District LC5 Vice Chairman, Opio Vicent, was arrested this afternoon for allegedly extorting money from a job applicant. 

According to reports, the job applicant, Musabiire Derick, had been seeking employment with the district government when the Vice Chairman allegedly demanded a hefty sum of Shs 1,500,000 in exchange for favourable consideration.

The applicant, feeling coerced and desperate, reported the incident to the authorities, leading to the Vice Chairman’s arrest.
