seek geneva; font-size: small;”>Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Ibin Ssenkumbi on Tuesday said James Kigozi, Abraham Mutungi, Rehema Nduga and Fatima Matovu opened an account under the name Uganda Trust claiming to offer bursaries to children in Kampala.

Ssekumbi said hundreds of unsuspecting Ugandans fell victim to the trap since none got value of their money. “Every applicant was robbed over Shs500,000. Ugandans should be careful when dealing such NGOs.”

He added: “These conmen hired over 30 people to go to several parts of the country to mobilize parents telling lies that their children would benefit but these people would disappear without giving them the promised bursaries.”

Ssenkumbi suspects over 5,000 children have been victims of this scam.
