Police at Central Police Station is holding a top city businessman on allegations that he defrauded Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Sacco Shs 169M claiming he was to buy for them land which he failed.
The fraud star behind police bars has been identified as William Chemoges a resident of Kyambogo in Nakawa Divison who deals in real estate.
According to information obtained at CPS Kampala, William in March last year entered into an agreement with KCCA Sacco to procure for them land. Investigators say he went ahead and forged land title comprising of block 169 plot 710 at Mukono East Buganda Kyagwe.
Sources at KCCA told us that they got to know that the land title which William got for them was fake early this year. “When we knew that we were conned of Shs 169M we tried to look for him but all in vain,” says a source from KCCA. The source adds that they opened up a case of obtaining money by false pretence under file CRB 363/2020.
Police says they have been trailing him and was arrested from Kapchorwa where he was hiding.
