After being given a job as finance manager at a West Midlands council.
John Kaduwanema, aged 27, from Uganda, used the cash he diverted from public funds to create his own property empire.
Presumably, his property empire has been split up and sold off to recover some of the cash?
Today he is in jail, starting a seven and a half year sentence for the fraud against Birmingham City Council. The judge recommended he is deported after serving half the sentence.
Really? What are the odds that that will actually happen?
Birmingham Crown Court heard Kaduwanema should never have been given the job because he only had an expired student visa.
Not only should he not have got the job, he shouldn't have been in the country!
You couldn't make it up.
