All is not well at Diamond Trust Bank, both at the headquarters and at Malaba Branch where their Manager, Mrs. Regina Kiguli Ahumuza has made off with over UG345M, the Investigator exclusively report.
From Police fresh investigations, we have gathered that Regina went ‘missing’ on Friday (11th November 2016) after she locked all colleagues and her juniors in the banking hall before she made off with the loot.
Police have since arrested, detained and questioning Peter Ddungu, 28, the Customer Service Supervisor and Christine Nabulime, 29, a teller, to help with the tender investigations.
Ddungu told police that it all started when he received a customer who wanted to withdraw UG13M. On consulting Regina he was informed that the Bank Coffers were empty. After about an hour, another client came to withdraw UG5M but again Ddungu received the same answer from his manager.
Concerned and confused in same measures, he reportedly sent an email to the headquarters and following the same, an investigation and audit team were immediately sent in from Kampala. The teams have so far established the loss to the tune of UGX345M.
The officer in Charge at Malaba police station, Barnabas Tusingwire confirmed the fraud and called on the public to report Regina on sight. He revealed that more staff members are to be questioned.
An insider at the Bank told the Investigator that Regina fled on a speeding Bodaboda with some cash in a black polythen bag. She reportedly left her bag in office, probably to disguise her intentions. Tusingwire said Nabulime and Ddungu have been transferred to Tororo Central Police Station for further questioning and investigations.
