Vice President, Jessica Alupo has admitted that she received the Karamoja iron sheets.

Alupo however, stated that she instructed that they should be directly channeled for community projects

“Yes. I received the iron sheets but not physically because of my schedule. [But] I did give instructions that they should be directly channeled directly for community projects. I refused the iron sheets to be delivered to my home,” VP Alupo said as quoted by Daily Monitor

On Thursday, the Anti-Corruption Court remanded the Minister for Karamoja Affairs Mary Gorreti Kitutu Kimono to Luzira Prison for causing loss of public property, corruption, and conspiracy to defraud the government.

The office of the Inspector General of Government (IGG) released a list of at least 22 ministers, 31 MPs and 13 Chief Administrative Officers (CAOs) whom it is investigating in connection with the Karamoja iron sheets scandal.
