The vice chairperson of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party in Jinja District, Majidu Dhikusooka has been sacked on allegations of abuse of office.
Dhikusooka was dismissed by the party’s executive committee following investigations into complaints that he was using his office to fleece unsuspecting people.

The probe team which started its work in May, 2016, has since found him guilty of corruption, abuse of office, fraud, misconduct, misappropriation and mismanagement of funds.
Dhikusooka was found guilty of swindling over Shs400 million from different people and from the NRM secretariat.
Part of it is Shs5m sent by the NRM secretariat to facilitate district planning meetings during presidential campaigns early this year and another Sh 70 million, part of a Sh118 million disbursement, meant for branch conferences at village level.
Dhikusooka was also found guilty of swindling 155 million Shillings from Kakira Sugar Works chief Accountant Bernard Byakagaba.
