BY: Eyalama In News, Politics On

The State Minister for Labour, Mwesigwa Rukutana who was remanded to Kakiika Prison in Mbarara District on Monday is expected to return to court today.

Rukutana, who is also the Rushenyi County MP was on Monday afternoon arraigned before the Ntungamo grade one magistrate and several charges including attempted murder were read to him.

However, because the grade one magistrate had no jurisdiction over the attempted murder charge, he never pleaded to it and is expected to appear before the Chief Magistrate later today(Tuesday) to plead to the charge.

It is also expected that Rukutana will also apply for bail before the Chief Magistrates Court in Ntungamo.
