LIRA:

Tension escalated between local leaders and the parish chief over unauthorized withdrawal of 12 million from the bank at the beginning of this week.

Boke ward parish chief Mr Okoda Thomas, withdrew 12m shillings from Post bank and gathers A Sacco group of Boke to distribute the money locally to them without following guidelines of the Parish Development Model.

However, this suffered a setback from Hon Ojok Walter Apere, councillor representing the people of Boke ward in Lira City East Division council.



‘Okoda Thomas gathered people to give the money after withdrawing but out of our intervention, we ordered him to refund the money to the bank ‘said Ojok.

In fact, Okoda manoeuvred and withdrew the 12 m from the bank on Tuesday the 20th of September 2022.

Caroline Cana the female councillor representing the people of Boke in the division council said they were too disappointed in the way the money was being withdrawn minus following the guidelines.

Lillian Grace Ocari the PDM focal point person for Lira city, confirmed to The Ankole Times that after learning what was going on, they discontinued the process of uncontrolled withdrawal and distribution of the 12m PDM cash by Okoda.

One of the beneficiaries from Boke ward, who requested for his name to be withheld by this publication, said they are now confused on what do about PDM money since their eyes are on but their hands are off.
