SQUEAKY BUM TIME: PM Nabbanja Expected To Appear Before The Anti-Corruption Court Over Karamoja iron sheets saga.

 Reports coming through indicate that the Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Robinah Nabbanja is the next candidate of the anti-corruption court dock over the iron sheets saga.

The development comes few days after the presidential affairs committee tabled its report on the diverted Karamoja iron sheets scandal where they found Nabbanja culpable for failing to rein in as her junior ministers were awarding themselves public property meant for the vulnerable Karamoja karachunas.

In the Jessica Ababiku read report tabled during  plenary on the 22nd May 2023, it was recommended that Prime minister, Rt. Hon. Robinah  Nabbanja, Karamoja Affairs Ministers for cabinet and state Dr. Mary Goretti Kitutu and Agnes Nanduttu respectively be held liable for the thieving scandal that cost taxpayers billions of money.

The same committee also recommended that the Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Anita Among, Vice President Jessica Alupo and Deputy Prime Ministers Rukia Nakadaama and Rebecca Kadaga apologize for ‘unconsciously’ taking government property.

The Deputy Speaker Thomas Tayebwa who presided the plenary tasked lawmakers to refrain from debating on the Karamoja iron sheets saga citing subjudice as he argued that the matter was already in courts of law. He guided that the legislators talk about the diverted goats and maize instead.

Aside from parliament, well placed sources in the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions have disclosed that any time from now within this week, the Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Robinah Nabbanja will be in the dock facing the judges on charges of corruption and conspiracy to commit a felony.

She was reportedly grilled earlier by the CID for close to an hour before she angrily stormed out of the session. Reports say her case has been forwarded to the DPP for prosecution. Irene Nakimbugwe who is the Deputy Spokesperson of the office of the DPP confirmed that some more case files were received for sanctioning.

Fearing what would befall her in case she is arrested, Nabbanja fled to her home district in Kakumiro over the weekend where she spent an undisclosed sum of money rallying her electorate to protest in case she is remanded to Luzira prison like the previous ministers Kituttu, Nanduttu and Amos Lugoloobi.
