Two former officials of the Uganda National Chamber of Commerce and Industries [UNCCI] have recorded statements at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, for misappropriating 99 million shillings meant for fighting HIV/Aids.
Stephen Kabagambe and Abdu Kasule were former UNCCI Treasurer and Deputy Secretary General respectively. The two appeared last week at the CID directorate but were asked to return today with accountability for 99 million shillings.
The Uganda National Chamber of Commerce and Industries received 385.6million shillings from the Global fund for the fight of HIV/Aids, Malaria and Tuberculosis.
But the Justice James Ogoola Commission that investigated the use of Global Funds, instructed UNCCI to refund 99million shillings. Fred Enanga, the CID spokesman said that UNCCI officials could have misappropriated 99 million shillings.
He said that Kabagambe and Kasule today submitted documents to the CID that they are comparing with those they submitted to the Global fund inquiry.

Investigations into the Global Funds are being conducted by a joint team of Police officers, Director of Public Prosecution and the Judiciary.
The anti-corruption court recently sentenced the Director of Economic Monitoring in Internal Security Organization, Teddy Ssezi Cheeye and Freddie Kavuma a former UBC producer to ten and five years in jail respectively for misappropriating Global fund money.
Their conviction is the latest attempt by government, to show commitment to bring to book people implicated in the misappropriation of Global Funds.
