Anti-Corruption Court Issues Order to Re-arrest Former Minister Kabafunzaki

COURT, KAMPALA: The Anti-corruption Court Judge Magret Tibulya has ordered for the arrest of former Minister for Labour, Hebert Kabafunzaki pending his corruption trial.

The order comes after the former minister skipped court for the second time.

Minister Kabafunzaki was arrested on April 1, 2017 with his assistants Bruce Lubowa and Brian Mugabo, for allegedly soliciting a five million shilling bribe from AYA Group Chairman Muhammad Hamid.

During an earlier hearing, Kabafunzaki denied the charges but Mugabo said he hid the money on the orders of the minister.
