An audit report has emerged showing how four ICT managers colluded with banks to embezzle over 160 million only six month after the presidential digital talent program was launched.
According to Mr Charles Masika most of the money was embezzled through allocation of internships to engineering and ICT graduates.
Reports showed that the embezzlement was masked under employee deductions, employee savings,Sacco deductions and per Diem.
He said that hundreds of withdrawals made from the authorities were made through forged documents and transferred to private accounts.
Some officials whose names were withheld received 20 million each in the name of out of office allowances which would amount to a total of 541 nights of office which is not possible in six months.
Mr. Masika said that the ICT managers needed to collude with the bank in order to make these kinds of transfers.
The auditor said that the fraud might have stretched longer than the six months under the audit period.
