The judgement will be delivered by mail according to the notice sent by court to Minister Muhwezi’s lawyers of Rukutana Mwesigwa and Company Advocates.
This is one of the first cases the former Deputy Attorney General and Minister for Gender Hon Rukutana Mwesigwa is handling in private practice ever since he returned to private legal practice.

During his defense, the Minister through his lawyers described the allegations by the Petitioner as baseless propaganda having won the election legitimately.
