Kasese leaders face arrest over funds

Staff that diverted allowances meant for Kasese district councillors will be brought to book, the district chairman, Lt. Col. Dula Mawa, has vowed. He said this while meeting aggrieved councillors and technical staff in his office on Friday. Mawa promised to help the complainants recover their money. The councillors are claiming arrears of sh39m. Officials from the finance department said the money was diverted to pay gratuity arrears for the 2008/2009 financial year.
Mawa said whoever is found guilty of causing the mess would be held responsible.
