PostBank Uganda Ltd (PBU) has rubbished claims that its employee benefited from COVID-19 relief funds meant for vulnerable Ugandans.
On 3rd September 2021, some media outlets published a story regarding an investigation into the management of COVID-19 beneficiaries lists by Gulu City Officials.
In the said media stories, it was reported that a certain Kiddy Obya, a Regional Credit Manager at PostBank Gulu was among the beneficiaries being queried about their eligibility to receive the COVID-19 funds.
However, PostBank says there is no employee under the names of Kiddy Obya that serves as a Regional Credit Manager or any other capacity.
“Additionally, the above role does not exist on the PBU structure. As per the bank’s Human Resource code of conduct, PostBank staff are required to conduct themselves with a high level of ethics and integrity. The bank does not endorse staff behaviour that do not represent the bank’s values,” a statement from the bank reads.
