Six Amuru District Staffs Under Probe for Theft of Health Centre Solar Batteries.

Six staffs of Amuru district are being investigated for theft of five solar batteries from Pabbo Health Centre III in Pabbo Sub County Amuru district.
They include Remo Nyeko a records officer at Pabbo Health Centre III, Patrick Odong a laboratory technician also at Pabbo Health Centre III and Charles Okiya a district driver attached to the office of the district chairperson and Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).
The others are Simon Peter Onen a security guard at Pabbo Health Centre III, Samuel Adoi and Geoffrey Oloya all porters at the same health centre.
The six are accused of conniving to steal five solar batteries from the power control room of Pabbo Health Centre III on the night of 3rd August this year. The batteries were used to light the health facility at night and operation of the data room.
John Bosco Langoya, the Pabbo Health Centre III Health Management Committee Chairperson said on Monday that the staffs were pinned after their tracked phone calls last week and movement coordinated them to the incidence.
Okiya says suspects linked to the phone calls on that night include Remo Nyeko, Patrick Odong and Charles Okiya. Meanwhile the two porters were that night seen roaming the power room area by the security guard on duty.
Langoya added that Okiya was also seen driving in and out of the health centre with a government vehicle at around 2:00 a.m a factor that links him to the disappearance of the batteries.
The suspects on Tuesday last week recorded statements at Pabbo Police Post under CRB 18/03/8/2019 and released on bond.
In his statement to police, Onen who was the guard on duty that night told police that on the night of 3rd August 2019 he discovered that the power room padlock was changed.
Michael Lakony, the Amuru district chairperson described the suspects as haters of development in Amuru during an interview on Monday.
Each battery was last year installed at the facility at a cost of one million and five hundred shillings. He explained that deliveries at Pabbo Health Centre III has been halted at night hours whenever there is no electricity due to darkness.
He warned that the district will hesitate to pin those that will be implicated in the incidence.
Emmanuel Bwambale, the Amuru District Police Commander said on Monday that the six are still being investigated and their files will soon be taken for legal advice to the Resident State Attorney.
