“The homes have diverted from the original reasons of their establishment and have now turned out to be money trapping centers,” Bwanika explained.

He then added: “They lobby for money from the west, claiming to be raising orphans yet they channel the funds for self interests.”

Bwanika also clarified that apart from that, children in the homes are poorly fed, counsellors to guide the children are not in place, most of the time they are not attended to and the homes have little space, conditions that may lead to outbreak of contagious diseases.

Police promised to re-open the homes if the required standards are met.

Meanwhile, the proprietors have been called for questioning at Wakiso police station, and the children have been transferred to other organised orphanage homes.
