FROM GRACE TO GRASS: Ntungamo’s Chief Magistrate remands Minister Mwesigwa Rukutana to prison till mid September

NTUNGAMO– The Chief Magistrate of Ntungamo, Sarah Kolya has remanded State Minister for Labour, Mwesigwa Rukutana to prison till September 15th 2020.

In a court appearance where a few family members of Rukutana were allowed in, Kolya extended the bail application without giving any reasons as she only adjourned the ruling.

However, Rukutana’s lawyers claim their client needs medical attention.

Yesterday the Ntungamo Grade One magistrate Nasifah Namayanja sent Rukutana to Kakika Prison in Mbarara on charges of attempted murder, malicious damage and theft of a gun.

Rukutana was arrested on Saturday together with four of his bodyguards following a violent exchange between the minister and supporters of his political rival Naome Kabasharira who had defeated him in the NRM primaries.
