The Chief Magistrate at the anti-corruption court in Kololo has denied Karamoja Affairs Minister Dr. Mary Goretti Kitutu and her brother Michael Naboya Kitutu bail.
The duo had presented sureties who are highly reputable members of society in the political class and civil service but the judge Marion Aciro deemed them insubstantial to produce the suspect in court.
Kitutu has again to brave more weeks at Luzira prison as the state prosecution continues to investigate her for charges of corruption linked to the diversion of Karamoja iron sheets.
The Karamoja minister has so far spent over 5 nights in prison.
More details to follow.
