The state minister for Karamoja affairs, Ms Agnes Nandutu has been detained at Kira Division Police station after she handed herself in to the Criminal Investigations Department at Kibuli, Kampala for questioning.
Ms. Nandutu had previously failed to show up for further questioning, raising prospects that police would hunt down and arrest her.
Police said the Bududa Woman MP turned up at the CID headquarters on Tuesday morning in relation to the ongoing investigations about abuse of office and theft of iron sheets meant for the people of the resistive Karamoja Sub Region.
“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.
