The State Minister for Karamoja affairs is currently being held at Kira Division Police station.

Nandutu earlier today handed herself over to the Police at CID Headquarters, Kibuli. Police express gratitude for her cooperation.

Ms Nandutu had previously failed to show up for further questioning, raising prospects that police would hunt down and arrest her.

But on Tuesday morning, the Bududa Woman MP turned up at the CID headquarters

“The Hon. Minister of State handed herself over to the Police at CID Headquarters Kibuli, where she was assigned detectives to take her statement. She is currently being held at Kira Division Police station. The file has been submitted to the office of the DPP for further guidance and possible sanctioning.”

“We thank Hon. Agnes Nandutu for handing herself over to the Police, upon learning of the allegations under investigation.This action has saved Police time and resources and it is worth emulating when in similar circumstances,” said the deputy police spokesperson, CP Polly Namaye said as quoted by Daily Monitor

So far, two ministers; Mary Gorreti Kitutu, the minister of Karamoja and Amos Lugolobi, the state minister for finance (planning) have been charged at the Anti-Corruption Court over corruption and for causing government loss after iron sheets meant for the poor people of Karamoja.
