Social worker struck off over fraudulent claims
A SOCIAL worker has been struck off the care register after claiming a car users’ allowance when she was disqualified from driving.
Patricia Kakeeto managed to continue working for Tower Hamlets Council’s Vulnerable Adults and Drugs Team for two years before her lies were found out through a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check.
In September 2007 she was fined at Barking Magistrates Court and handed a 12 month conditional discharge for fleeing the scene of an accident and failing to be breathalysed.
She did not tell her employer and instead claimed a car allowance for her work in the East End, despite not being allowed to drive.
She later admitted lying.

At a hearing at the General Social Care Council in London Bridge on Tuesday she was found guilty of misconduct and taken off the register.
In its report, the committee said it had considered the impact the ban would have on Ms Kakeeto but decided her actions were too serious to be dealt with in another way.
