Forgery to get funds from Donors

This is a strange case where an official from one of the Coalitions together with a fake company took about 24 million Shs in a ficticious water governance deal;

The names are real and they have not been altered and the case seems to be hitting a dead end where life for the fraudsters seem to go on. They copied two reports one of which was from the organisation that I headed and the truth I wasn't surprised, the surprise is lack of action on part of our very own organisations and the fact that the perpetuators are still proud consultants even in organisations that I know stand for transparency: Please read through the mails below and make your vadict. I can assure you at an appropriate time I will expose the lot

Following a Board meeting ofRAC and the resolution that I explain the circumstances and extent of my dealings with the above firm. I hereunder state as follows:

1. That I have never dealt or even known a firm so called PERD AFRICA until today in the board meeting. It was purported by one Grace Maiso, for whom I did some work in data collection to assist him prepare a paper he told me would be presented at a water sector stakeholder's symposium in Kampala.

2. That the said paper, as requested was never to be used for purposes of soliciting for funding of whatever form for it was only intended to contribute to the body of knowledge for which I was pleased and curious to contribute .

3. That Mr. Grace Maiso engaged me ,in my private individual capacity save for the involvement of personalities from both ACCD and RAC to gather information for the purpose of providing a paper based on facts and examples drawn from the grassroots in the R wenzori region as had been requested.

4. That in case Mr. Maiso used the information for purposes other than what was' disclosed to me is a matter of breach of trust.
Finally, I regret whatever inconveniences my action may have caused both RAC and/or ACCD. I have never been part or an accomplish ofPERD to use the information for financial gain but rather hoped it was for purposes of sharing to inform policy and cause change for the common good.
