Minister Mwesigye Rukutana

Junior minister for Gender, labour and social development has been in the news for the last four days for bad reasons as he’s accused of attempted murder following a scuffle that ensued on the day the NRM conducted the chaotic primary elections.

The man who has been rated among the untouchables in Museveni regime has been behind bars since Saturday last week and was charged yesterday on seven counts. The former attorney general lost his cool last Friday pulled a gun from his body guard and attempted to shoot at crowds that were yelling at him for loosing a primary election. He

Minister Rukutuna last year came to spot light when Junior minister accused him of being a minister and in his reply to her he said he knows how to put ladies to good use, he’s also remembered for telling justice Catherine Bamugemereire to report him to God or go and hung.

Now as the saying goes that what comes around, goes around, the magistrates court in Ntungamo has remanded Rukutana and his three body guards to Kitalya prison until 15th September and he was not granted chance to bail. This comes at the backdrop of president Museveni telling the nation that Minister Rukutana must face the law without fear or favor but with flavor.
