Museveni put Intelligence on high alert over Rukutana’s next move

Minister Mwesigwa Rukutana

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who also doubles as the Commander In Chief of Armed Forces has instructed the Director Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) Gen Abel Kanduho to monitor the phone communication of jailed State Minister for Gender labor and Social Development Hon Mwesigwa Rukutana who also doubles as the Member of Parliament for Rushenyi County in Ntungamo District.

Hon Rukutana is currently jailed at Kitalya prison in Wakiso District on several charges that range from attempted murder, threatening violence, malicious damages of properties, assault among others and will appear before court on 15 for his bail application.


Troubled Rukutana committed offences in Ntungamo last week after he was seriously beaten pants down in NRM Primaries by his main rival Naome Kabasharira the former Woman Member of Parliament for Ntungamo District.

Intelligence sources revealed to info256 last night that tough President Museveni instructed intelligence chief Kanduho to monitor closely all Rukutana’s communications and his managers’ movements after he received reports that jailed Rukutana wanted to use his managers, wives, friends and relatives to cause mayhem in Ntungamo District.

Security sources say Rukutana has more than 400 dependents who survive from his pockets and if they are well mobilized, they can cause havoc in Ntungamo.

“Some of his dependents and managers who hail from Kampala have already moved to Ntungamo and will soon team up with those who already on ground to start confusion in Rubare and Ntungamo town,” says a security source.

Reliable sources say CMI has already deployed intelligence officers in Ntungamo town, Rubare and other parts of Rushenyi and are trailing some of the suspected ring leaders to make sure they do not cause any mayhem around.

Other security sources have said Rukutana supporters will be putting on Yellow t-Shirts with a portrait of President Museveni demanding for his release but they will also be arrested.

“We have now known their game plan and we shall not allow any kind of protest let be in yellow with President Museveni portrait or what ever color,” says another security officer who is in Ntungamo
