BUKEDEA: The offended three officers who were accused and locked out of the office last Friday by the angry councilors in Kongunga town council in Bukedea district over the allegations of misappropriation of funds worth 40 million shillings have apologized and asked for forgiveness from the council.
The kicked out officers are town clerk Emmanuel Elimu, the community development officer David Ojono, and the district engineer Stephen Ogwangu.
The apologies were submitted during the district engagement meeting held at the council chambers and it was headed and chaired by the district chairperson.
The funds were channeled from distributed equilateral funds (DEG) meant for community road opening.
Emmanuel Elimu, the town clerk upon submitting apologies, asked the councilors together with community members for cooperation.
He says mistakes of corruption would be brought to book and he clarified that all the town council accountabilities should be available to all members in the council respectively.
“I want apologies for the mistakes we have committed for it but please forgive us, and let us work together”, said Mr. Elimu.
Gabriel Ejukat the LCIII chairperson cautioned the accused officers to filter out the corruption behaviors.
He says since the bible details that whenever a person commits his mistakes can be forgiven.
“We are ready to forgive you as per now but never repeat such acts”, said Mr. Ejukat.
However, Moses Olemukan the district chairperson who finally reopened the locked offices appealed for unity amongst technical staff and the politicians.
