They included former minister Jim Muhwezi, Igara East MP Michael Mawanda and businessman Bob Kabonero.  

He was ordered to deposit his passport and is not allowed to travel without court permission.

President Museveni ordered Minister Rukutana prosecuted and was even against the idea of giving him bail.

“They will be fully accountable with robust charges: assault, attempted murder, murder, etc,” he said in reference to those who stirred chaos during the NRM primaries.
