Namisindwa RDC Orders for Arrest of Youths Who Misused YLP Funds

By Weswa Ronnie




The Resident District Commissioner (RDC) for Namisindwa District has asked police to arrest all youths who have failed to reimburse money they got under Youth Livelihood Program in the F/Y 2017/2018.


Fredrick Bango revealed this while speaking to our reporter at his office on Monday, 12th December 2022 saying that out of over Shs711M given to the youths in the 2017/2018 financial year, the district has only recovered Shs77million which translates into 10% recovery rate.


“Since that money was a revolving fund, their failure to payback has paralyzed the program because other youth groups that were to be given the same money for financial years of 2018/19, 2019/20, 2020/21 and of 2021/2022 cannot get,” he said.


Bango also says that most of these youth group leaders have fled to neighboring Kenya after knowing that they will be arrested.


Andrew Wabweni, the Namisindwa District Community Development Officer says that money was given to 81 youth groups in 2017/2019 financial year.


He urged youths who have not recovered the money so far to do so in time such that they cannot be arrested.
