DFCU Bank Dragged To Police For Paying Sh77m To Wrong Recipient

Police’s Criminal Investigations Department has summoned the managing director of DFCU bank, Mr Mathias Katamba and the branch manager of Kabale, Mr Morgan Mutesasira after a woman reported the theft of over Sh70m from an account belonging to her late father for which she was a signatory.

According to Watchdog, Ms Grace Nyakaishikyi Kamuhanda accuses DFCU officials of conniving with a one Florence Kamuhanga to steal her father’s savings amounting to Sh77,122,000, a case brought to the attention of DFCU management but have done nothing about the matter three years down the road.

Ms Kamuhanda is the daughter of the late Mzee Kamuhanda John Wycliffe with account number 01983001000395 in DFCU bank had sh77,122,000 at the time of his death on December 3 2017. However, the bank paid a non-signatory to the account all the money on February 2, 2018, something Grace says could not have happened without an insider assisting in the process.

Ms Kamuhanda wrote to CID boss on February 10, 2020, asking that her file be handled by her office to bring DFCU and its managers to book after it emerged that she has not received justice since 2018 when she first reported the complaint.

Through her lawyers, Twikirize and Co. Advocates Grace, says her late father died but his money amounting to Sh77,122,000 was transferred from his account on February 2, 2018, without her authorization to Ms Florence Tumwijukye who was not a signatory to the account.

The complainant wants DFCU to force Florence to pay back the money including Sh15 million as lawyers’ fees.
