Minister Rukutana’s case adjourned to next year

NTUNGAMO- The Ntungamo chief magistrate court presided over by Sarah Mponye Kolya has on Tuesday November 3rd 2020 adjourned Minister Mwesigwa Rukutana’s case to January 20th, 2021 when he will appear in court for the next hearing.

The case was rescheduled to next year after the accused (Rukutana) failed to appear in court today however the criminal summons will stay.

According to his lawyers led by Murangira Owen of LSA Advocates due to sickness he could not attend court in person but assured the court that next time he will be able to appear.

Counsel Murangira rubbished the charges against his client by Naome Kabasharira and her group noting that it was politically motivated since the complainants refused to surface in court.

State prosecution led by Eunice Mbaine did not object to the extension of court bail but said that the investigations are still ongoing and need ample time to be completed.

Hon Rukutana is charged with seven counts of attempted murder, malicious damage, assault and four counts of threatening violence to several complainants following the violence that marred the Rushenyi county NRM primaries on September 5th, 2020.
