Three club directors have been accused of mismanaging over Shs 300m.
The subsequent infighting has led to the closure of Twerwaneho listeners' club, a local non-governmental organisation in Fort Portal. According to a report lodged with the local police; Joseph Kahwa, Simon Amanyire and Gerald Kankya are accused of swindling Shs 300m in three years by forging other board members' signatures and hiring staff without proper authorization.
The aggrieved board members told The Observer that whereas the club was set up to help poor people deal with legal problems, Kahwa and Amanyire had diverted the monies to personal use. Before they asked the police to close Twerwaneho down, Kankya insisted that they had conducted various pilot projects in the Rwenzori sub-region, including Mugusu and Buhesi sub-counties in Kabarole and were planning other activities.
