RUBANDA- As the drama surrounding the Karamoja iron sheets scandal continues to take a new twist, iron sheets that were allegedly received by the state minister for finance in charge of general duties Henry Ariganyira Musasizi are allegedly yet to be distributed to the beneficiaries or returned to the office of Prime minister as President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni directed.

Details from the Office of the Prime Minister indicate that during the financial year 2021/2022, the department of Karamoja Affairs obtained a supplementary budget to support the Peace and Disarmament exercise in the sub-region and part of the budget was spent to procure iron sheets.

In February, this year, Musasizi who is also the Rubanda East Member of Parliament confirmed that he received 200 iron sheets and handed them over to the Kakore-Rugambwa catholic parish priest Rev Fr Herbert Agaba Fr Herbert Agaba to be the custodian of the iron sheets and help in the distribution of the iron sheets to the interested beneficiaries.

Rev Fr Agaba confirmed receipt of the 200 iron sheets from Musasizi. Fr Agaba further said that the iron sheets were distributed to St John’s Ikumba primary school, Rwamugura Catholic Church and Bugiri annex church school after identifying them to be in need of the iron sheets but the administrators of these schools refuted receipt of the iron sheets.

The Rubanda District Inspector of Schools Gerald Akambasa said that he has no report on any learning institution that has received any iron sheets labeled the office of the prime minister. He added that after receiving claims that some schools received iron sheets, he took an initiative to find out which schools received in vain.

The Rubanda Resident District Commissioner Lillian Ruteraho told our reporter that her office has no information about any institution or individual that has received free iron sheets labelled the office of the prime minister.

Without disclosing a lot, the Rubanda District Internal Security Officer Michael Mwijukye confirmed that the iron sheets are still in Rubanda District but he never revealed where the iron sheets are stored.

However, Rev Fr Agaba who early accepted to have received the iron sheets changed his position and refused to make a comment on the iron sheets claiming that he didn’t want to betray minister Musasizi who delivered the iron sheets and referred our reporter to the Musasizi who declined to comment.
