Members of a Village Saving and Loan Association-VSLA in Nwoya district are yet to recover from losing 36 million shillings to robbers.

Reports say that the cash was stolen on the night of January 6th, 2023 by two gunmen armed from the home of the VSLA treasurer, Acaa Rose.

The robbery happened a day before the group consisting of 32 members was scheduled to share its annual savings, according to Janet Atenyo, one of the group members.

Three of the group leaders including Acaa, Ojok David, the group chairperson, and Oketta Norbert, the group secretary, have since been arrested and detained at Nwoya District Police Station to help investigations.

Efforts to get a comment from Nyangoma Grace, the Nwoya District Police Commander were futile she did not answer or return our repeated calls.

But the Resident District Commissioner, Omara Christopher, who doubles as the chairperson of the district security committee confirmed the report saying investigations are ongoing.
