They accuse Uwonda of excessive alcohol consumption, using abusive language and taking bribes from suspects among other misconducts.

Paskalina Paculal one of the residents says they are fed up with Uwonda’s conducts and he requested Denis Oyewa, the sub county chairperson to intervene in the matter.

Diadone Uguta, the chairperson LC1 Udukuru A village confirmed the accusations against Uwonda saying he had tried to talk to him but he refused to reform.

However Uwonda the defense dismisses the allegations against him as false and aimed at failing him saying if he has committed any crime he should be taken to courts of law instead of the sub county chairperson.
