The State Minister of Karamoja Affairs, Hon. Agnes Nandutu, has been remanded to Luzira Prison until May 3, 2023, on charges of Dealing with Suspect Property following the diversion of iron sheets meant for the Karachunas in Karamoja Subregion.

She was charged Wednesday with dealing with suspect property contrary to Section 21A(1) of the Anti-Corruption Act, 2009 (as amended), before she was committed to the High Court for trial. The offense attracts a maximum sentence of seven years imprisonment after conviction.

The Anti-Corruption Court grade one magistrate, Esther Asiimwe, said she cannot hear the Bududa Woman MP’s bail application following her committal.
This was after the State attorney, Mr. David Bisamuyu, told court that inquiries into the case were complete.

Nandutu is the 3rd Minister to be charged for their involvement in the iron sheet scandal. The other two are her senior colleague, Mary Goretti Kitutu, and the finance state minister for planning.
