Eva Kwesiga, the Resident District Commissioner in charge of both Iganga and Bugweri, says the suspects were meant to distribute the funds on Sunday. “These two were supposed to distribute the funds on Sunday morning but they were no show yet the beneficiaries had gathered at the district headquarters,” she said.
The Iganga District National Resistance Movement-NRM party Administrative Secretary, Tony Nabala is in police custody for alleged theft of Shillings 18 million.  

The money is said to have been handed to the suspect on Saturday morning to facilitate five members of the grassroots party committees in 360 villages of Iganga and Bugweri districts to mobilize voters for the ongoing voter’s register updating exercise.

Nabala is however, reported to have connived with his Bugweri counterpart, Yazid Kirunda to fleece the beneficiaries of their facilitation. Norah Bamutaze, a state house aide who was in charge of distributing the said funds in Busoga Sub region claims that the two switched off their phones after receiving the money.

"These funds were donated to the party’s grass root mobilizers by the president himself but to my surprise the party leaders in Busoga sub region have resorted to grabbing it. 

The Kamuli district NRM chairperson, Samuel Bamwole was the first to flee with about Shillings 11 million on Sunday but returned today evening. However, Nabala and Kirunda switched off their phones and disappeared, forcing us to involve police,” she said.  

Eva Kwesiga, the Resident District Commissioner in charge of both Iganga and Bugweri, says the suspects were meant to distribute the funds on Sunday. “These two were supposed to distribute the funds on Sunday morning but they were no show yet the beneficiaries had gathered at the district headquarters,” she said.

James Mubi, the Busoga East police spokesperson says Nabala is locked up at Iganga central police station, adding that special teams have been dispatched to hunt for Kirunda who is still at large.
