Koboko District authorities are struggling to recover Emyooga funds after some of the youth misused the money they borrowed from their Saccos.

According to the Deputy Resident District Commissioner, Vincent Mugenyi some of the youth allegedly used the Emyooga funds for marrying more wives.

“There are people who borrowed money from Emyooga Saccos to marry their second and third wives and have failed to pay back thinking that it was given to them just to be eaten but we’ll arrest and prosecute them,” he said.

Koboko District Local Government received Shs1.68 billion to be shared among 54 Saccos in the constituencies of Koboko North, Koboko Constituency and Koboko Municipality. Mugenyi also says that less than 20 percent of the money has so far been recovered by the district
