By Our Reporter.

KAMPALA- The Minister of State for Planning, Amos Lugoloobi, has been denied bail by the Anti-Corruption Court Kololo in Kampala.

The Minister was arrested on Friday last week over issues of diversion of iron sheets meant for Karamoja.

He has been remanded to Luzira Prison until April 20 when he is expected to be produced in court again following his arrest over Karamoja iron sheets scandal.

He was reportedly heading to Entebbe International Airport when security operatives intercepted him before he was taken to Kira Division Police station where he was detained until today when he was arraigned in court.

Lugoloobi, who is also the Ntenjeru North County MP, reportedly received 600 iron sheets meant for the vulnerable people in Karamoja Sub-region.

He was one of the ministers who last Friday sent back iron sheets to the Office of the Prime Minister in Namanve, following President Museveni’s orders to his ministers to return the iron sheets or pay in cash the equivalent.

In February, the minister admitted to have used some of the iron sheets to roof a shed for his goats on his farm in Misanga Village, Bbaale Sub- County in Kayunga District.

He, however, removed them after there was public outcry over the ministers who allegedly diverted the iron sheets.
