During the preparations of the Scouts Jamboree in 2004, President Museveni advanced $200,000 to kick start the preparatory activities against the proposed budget.

Information reaching ChimpReports reveals that the funds were however spent without regard to the budget by some individuals who included Dr Mpuga, Major Richard Kamya and Okello Richard, from the Uganda Scouts Association.

The trio were encouraged by an ISO operative, Major Aliganyira, who was later withdrawn after ISO Managers found that he was misrepresenting them.

Following the misappropriation of funds, an interagency organizing committee (NOC) was set up headed by the Minister of Gender, Labor and social development, Hon Mary Karooro Okurut and Pius Bigirimana the permanent secretary, who was the chairman of the technical team.

The swindlers had apparently strategically positioned themselves as vision bearers and promoters of the scouts Jamboree cause, with the aim of redirecting the funds into their own pockets.

This Website understands that Dr Mpuga was found to be a fraudster who isn’t an actual medical doctor, and his colleague, Richard Kamya who claimed to be a major in the UPDF had never served in the army.

Bank statements that were seen by ChimpReports show huge amounts of withdrawals made by Okello from the account that was meant for the scouts’ jamboree preparations. The withdrawals are unaccounted for.

The swindlers were repellant to the NOC operations which were impediment to their illegal activities that included conning funds from unsuspecting members of the public, who were promised hefty contracts to do works such as construction, media contracts, and supply of food and equipment.

They were upstaged when major works were granted to the engineering brigade with guidance from President Museveni.

Information reaching ChimpReports shows that since they were unable to refund the huge perks received, the trio used underhand methods to malign government and frustrate efforts towards the management of the jamboree.

They wrote anonymous letters to the press discrediting the Minister and Permanent secretary, saying they are engaged in witchcraft practices and intimidate their staff.

The Ministry has ruled this as an insult by the speculators, who had clearly positioned themselves as swindlers to resort to mud sliding the Permanent Secretary and the Minister.
The Kabale Resident District Commissioner, visit Darius Nandinda has warned to take action against local tea growers who support opposition presidential candidates.

Nandida stated on Wednesday that he would not tolerate a group of tea nursery operators who get government support for their work and then openly support opposition candidates Kizza Besigye and Amama Mbabazi.

The RDC made the remarks at Cephas Inn Kabale while closing a day-long zonal review and planning meeting of the National Agricultural Advisory Services (NAADS) and the UPDF geared Operation Wealth Creation (OWC), find for the Kigezi region.

He said he would not tolerate the farmers getting support from government through the two programs when they are not willing to show appreciation in form support to the NRM government.

“My office has credible information that some farmers operating tea nurseries are openly campaigning for the opposition while speaking ill of President Yoweri Museveni,” he said.

“We know that they are campaigning for Amama Mbabazi and Kizza Besigye. That is not acceptable. That is confusing the people.”
