Dfcu Bank Staff Charged With Electronic Fraud & Theft Over Shs10bn Customers’ Savings

Police have charged a junior staff of dfcu bank for stealing customer’s savings worth Shs10bn, reports say.

The suspect identified as Braise Ombuze has been charged with the offense of Electronic Fraud and Theft under a reference Vide CID HQTRS GEF 604/2019.

Ombuze had been detained at CID head offices in Kibuli Kampala.

The police bond dated June 29 instructs Ombuze to appear at Kibuli on July 1, at 10 am for reporting.

“And continue to attend until otherwise directed by court further to answer to the said charge,” the police bond reads in part.

The suspect was bailed out by two sureties, Ambrose Belisya and a one Esther.

Ombuze is among six suspects who breached dfcu’s system and accessed customers’ information and reportedly stole US$2.6M (Shs9.6bn) depositors’ money.

It is understood that the masterminds breached some accounts in Kampala late last month and accessed the cash.

Earlier reports suggested the crime was executed by four junior staff and two outsiders.
