NEBBI – Police in Nebbi district have brought charges against Magistrate Grade 2 Kerican Peter Prosper.
An investigation revealed that he allegedly misappropriated Ugx 402 Million intended for compensating his Uncles and Aunties for their land.
During January 2022, at Angal Lower Parish, Nyaravur Sub-County, Nebbi district, the beneficiaries entrusted him with their compensation, deposited into his Housing Finance bank account, believing in his trustworthiness.
The funds, provided by the Ministry of Defence as compensation for land acquired by UPDF in 2001, were diverted for personal use.
“We are investigating how he utilized the money. It’s disheartening when individuals in positions of trust succumb to self-interest, wrongly seizing control of property they aren’t entitled to,” expressed SCP Fred Enanga, the Uganda Police spokesperson, condemning such breaches of trust against innocent civilians.
