Rushenyi County MP and State Minister for Labour, Industrial Relations and Employment Mwesigwa Rukutana will be charged with attempted murder.
A Charge Sheet on CRB 1050/2020 recorded at Ntungamo Police Station indicates that Mwesigwa Rukutana and others still at large on the 5th day of September 2020 at Kagugu village in Ntungamo District unlawfully attempted to cause the death of Rwebirungi Daniel alias Dan contrary to section 236 of the Penal Code Act.
Mwesigwa Rukutana M/A aged 61 years, Muyankole, is a resident of Kagugu Parish, Rubaare Sub County, according to the Charge Sheet.
Rukutana’s charges stem from an incident on Friday in which he was captured on video grabbing a gun from his escorts and attempting to shoot into a fire that was carrying supporters of his rival Naome Kabasharira.
President Museveni today reiterated that Rukutana will be prosecuted over the violence that marred the NRM primary elections in Rushenyi County.
