The suspects was summoned by Frank Ntaho, the Kabale Chief Administrative Officer to explain the where about of shillings 9.8 million that was banked on the sub county account in June.
Ntaho explains that they started investigating the whereabouts of money after receiving complaints from the chairperson but found out that the money had been withdrawn by the chief on July 11th.
