The mufti of Uganda, Sheikh Shaban Mubajje has axed one of his long time managers who has been running the Muslim owned 94.1 Bilal fm based at the old Kampala mosque over alleged embezzlement of the station’s money.
The probe team put up by the mufti himself to investigate the misappropriation of funds at the station, finally zeroed on Farouk Walungama who has been running the station for having among others failed to account for huge amounts of money yet to be disclosed, but our spy at the station intimated to us that the ‘gap’ is in millions.
Our source revealed that Walungama was also quizzed about the over exaggerated cost of the staff car he allegedly bought from a car bond in town but hiked its actual cost. As If that was not enough, the probe team led by Kiyembe based business man Haji Rajab Bukenya found out that Farouk didn’t even clear the total cost from the bond as indicted in his accountability books. The bond is still demanding Shs.7 million on the car. As a matter of fact, the bond management is moving to attach the car any moment from Monday next week, unless they clear debt. The car in question is a grey Noah Reg.No.UBD 944Q.
The now troubled man is also accused of beating up a staff live in studios after an argument over unknown disagreement.
Finally, the probe team also found out that the staff were at the verge of laying down their tools and go on strike due to unpaid salaries. The probe team has disclosed that station workers have gone several months without salaries yet the station has been up and running.
Our repeated calls to Farouk for a comment bore no fruits as he couldn’t pick.
Bilal FM is one of the many donations late Col.Muamar Gadafi and the people of Libya donated to the Muslim community in Uganda. Other than building for them the biggest mosque, the Libyan Gov’t camped at old K’la, built, furnished and equipped the Fm station with modern technology before handing it over to the leadership of the mosque.
