Evalisto Musinguzi, the Ryeru Sub County Chief in Rubirizi District is in trouble for alleged failure to account for over Shillings 40 million.

Shillings 24 million was reportedly disbursed by Uganda Wildlife Authority under Revenue Sharing program for people neighboring Queen Elizabeth National Park and while the rest was local revenue.

The money was meant to finance different projects in specific Parishes like construction of water tanks and income generating projects.

Richard Kimunyu, the Ryeru Sub County LC 3 Chairperson, says he had earlier warned the chief about accountability but he didn’t heed to his warning.

However, Musinguzi denies any wrong doing, saying it was council that resolved that they halt all business for the 2019/20 financial year and use the money to buy land for the proposed Ryeru Seed School.
