The minister who is also the Ntejeru North MP in Kayunga district is among the five suspects whose files were sanctioned by the Directorate of Public Prosecution – DPP on Thursday.
He is currently detained at Kira Division Police until Monday when he is expected to appear in court.
This website exclusively understands that another top official on the list of five suspects whose files are ready and sanctioned is Agnes Nandutu, the Junior Minister for Karamoja Affairs who reportedly went into hiding on Friday after being tipped on an impending arrest.
Nandutu is among the 15 Ministers who were interrogated by SHACU and the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) over the alleged theft and diversion of Karamoja Relief items.
Some of the Ministers have returned some of the controversial iron sheets following a presidential directive while Karamoja Affairs Minister Goretti Kitutu was charged and remanded alongside her brother Micheal Naboya. She was released on Friday after spending a week on remand at Luzira Prison.
Court last week issued a criminal summons for Kitutu’s personal assistant Joshua Abaho who is reportedly on the run.
