Two Chinese nationals attached to China Henan International Cooperation Group Ltd (CHICO), which is constructing Rukungiri-Kanungu road have been arrested over alleged fuel theft. 

The suspects, who have only been identified as site the manager and supervisor are currently being held at Kihihi town police in Kanungu district. They were arrested after they were found seated near their trucks while a boda boda cyclist siphoned fuel. 

Gad Ahimbisibwe Rugaju, the Kanungu deputy resident district commissioner, says that he found the boda boda rider siphoning fuel in a jerrycan from one of the trucks as the Chinese contractors simply looked on.

"This clearly shows that they were in the deal with the boda boda guy,” he said. According to Rugaju, when the suspected thief saw him, he took off and left his motorcycle and pipe he was using to syphon oil.

The management of CHICO has not yet commented about the arrest of their employees. - URN/The Observer
