President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has ordered the State House Anti-Corruption Unit (SH-ACU) to investigate cases of extortion and mismanagement of funds meant for the Parish Development Model (PDM) in the Acholi sub-region.

The President made the order during the meeting with a group of local leaders from Acholi led by the Gulu Resident City Commissioner (RCC) Jane Francis Amongin Okili to follow up on complaints made in February.

During the Acholi sub-region tour last month on Investment and Wealth creation, held under the theme: “Securing your future through  Wealth creation and shared prosperity.”

He urged the unit to check with the PDM secretariat about the instructions given for forming the parish SACCOs.

“Brig Isoke, you should check with the PDM secretariat about the instructions given in forming the Parish SACCOs.  What are they telling the people so that you compare with what is on ground. Also check this report of the extension workers,” Museveni said.

The president also stated that the money will be recovered and the culprits will be arrested.

“I will go to other places also because the people are there. We are going to arrest them properly, we are going to arrest them properly, there’s some good accommodation there. Rubanga Tye (God is there),” the president warned.

He also said that the National Resistance Movement (NRM) government will not fail to bring to book all those involved in messing up the Parish Development Model in which the government has put in many resources to get people out of poverty.
