An accountant at a credit and saving cooperative (SACCO) branch in Muhororo Sector of Ngororero District has been arrested for allegedly embezzling more than Rwf2.7 million.
Jacqueline Mbonyizanye, who is currently detained at Ngororero Police Station, was arrested on Thursday following an audit carried out at the SACCO branch, Police said.
“The audit found out that Mbonyizanye had received Rwf2,787,000, but could not explain circumstances under which the money went missing,” Theobald Kanamugire, Police spokesperson for the Western Province, said.
The internal audit precedes another one that will be conducted by Rwanda Cooperative Agency.
“We call upon anyone with information that would supplement these investigations, or any other act related to corruption or embezzlement, to come forward and support efforts against such malpractices,” Kanamugire said.
