Anti-corruption court has ordered former works Minister Abraham Byandala to defend himself against allegations of causing government a loss in shoddy works on Mukono-Katosi road.

Justice Lawrence Gidudu has ordered Byandala and six others to defend themselves  for  disobeying lawful orders by the IGG and signed the Kyetume – Katosi road contract that caused a shs2.7 billion loss to government.

Justice Gidudu said that it is evident that the group had hidden motives to sign a contract that authorized government to pay the said money to EUTAW, a nonexistent company.

The judge said evidence on record indicates they have to defend themselves in the matter.
