The former Minister for special duties in the Office of Omusinga and envoy to state house, Erisania Cameroon Isingoma has been arrested over fraud.
The Deputy Officer in Charge of Criminal Investigations at the Kasese Central Police Station Edward Tibemanya confirmed the arrest adding that Isingoma was picked at around 3pm from Kasese town.
Tibemanya said that Isingoma was not allowed to make a statement from Kasese and by press time he was being transferred to the Criminal Investigations headquarters in Kibuli, Kampala.
Isingoma was sacked by Omusinga Charles Wesley Mumbere Iremangoma in December last year following information that he embezzled over thirty million shillings from State House.
Isingoma is said to have received over fifty million shillings in cash from state house but delivered only twenty for the Omusinga’s treatment abroad.
The Omusinga then gave him a week’s ultimatum to have refunded the thirty million shillings he had embezzled but up to now no refund has been received.
The Kasese Resident District Commissioner Milton Odongo said he was happy Isingoma has been arrested because his acts were threatening the good relationship between the Obusinga and State House.
Odongo warned that people should not hide in the NRM like Isingoma with an aim of stealing funds given to them for different purposes.
