Uganda Labour Minister Arrested for Shooting into Crowd

A minister in Uganda was at the weekend arrested for shooting into a post-election crowd and injuring three persons.

Already, wesigwa Rukutana  was picked with three of his bodyguards, according to the deputy police spokesperson, Polly Namaye.

He was being detained at Ntungamo police station and with the guards where they are reportedly facing attempted murder charges.

One of the victims sustained severe injuries to his head while the others received minor wounds in the shooting in the western Uganda district of Ntungamo after ruling party flag bearers lost elections, said Namaye.

A source said when results were announced and Rukutana realised he lost to Naome Kabasharira, he grabbed a gun from one of his escorts and shot into the jubilant crowd.

Namaye said the most severely injured victim has been identified as Dan Rwiburungi.

He was rushed to Ntungamo Hospital in critical condition.
