President Yoweri Museveni has said that State Minister for Labour Mwesigwa Rukutana will face robust charges following a shooting incident the former deputy Attorney General was involved in.
Mr. Dan Rwiburingi, the shooting victim is now nursing bullet wounds injuries. He was evacuated for medication in Mbarara and was to be transported to Kampala for better management.
While posting on his official twitter handle, Museveni says that all those who beat people are in jail or on the run.
“The cheating in the NRM Primaries is over. Those who beat People, like in Bukono, are all in jail or on the run. Minister Rukutana is in jail and will be prosecuted. They will be fully accountable with robust charges: assault, attempted murder, murder etc,” Mr Museveni said.
President Museveni has further condemned those who altered the results and revealed that they will be charged with forgery.
Museveni says that there is no need to repeat elections.
”Those who altered results will go to jail on forgery, fraud, subversion, etc. and their forgeries will not stand. We do not even have to repeat the elections, except where they were not held. We simply need to audit what happened in each village,” he said.
Museveni is confident that votes rigging within NRM will come to an end by using the digitalized biometric voter registration and by transparency through lining behind candidates or their photographs.
