Samuel Odonga Otto the former Aruu County Member of Parliament wants a refund of 4 million Shillings that was meant for the construction of a 2.5km tourism road to Amuru Hot Springs.
Otto, in a letter dated 27th September this year claims that in July 2021, he paid the said money to the Town Council to construct the road to his Buffalo Camp but also improve access to social services, and open opportunity for other tourism investor's among others.
However, despite having hired a construction company, Ruyatin Limited which incurred costs for pegging and hiring a chirography machine among others, the road was never opened due to bad local politics, irredentism and negative attitude among others.
In his letter, Otto wants the Town Council to refund his money through the bank account of Ruyatin Limited.
The Amuru District LCV chairperson of Michael Lakony confirms receipt of the letter and says plans are underway to meet the town council on the matter.
Lakony says there's also an ongoing investigation of the leaders of the town council on allegations of collecting bribes from Otto.
