The arrest was confirmed by Andrew Ronald Bakak, the Deputy Resident District Commissioner of Kabale region, following numerous complaints from leaders and members of the Parish Development Model. The suspect, identified as Monday Charles, is currently in custody.

According to Bakak, the accused individual colluded with the Parish Chief, who is also wanted for questioning, to extort bribes ranging from 5,000 to 20,000 shillings from members of the Parish Development Model. They deceived the members by falsely promising to include them in the list of beneficiaries.

Bakak stated that a thorough investigation was conducted to establish the veracity of the claims. With the truth now confirmed, further inquiries are being launched to identify anyone suspected of soliciting bribes from members of the Parish Development Model.

It operates as a revolving fund with the objective of improving household incomes and welfare. Bakak emphasized that it is unacceptable for anyone to demand bribes from beneficiaries.
