Uganda’s judiciary however confirmed on Monday that it has the possibility to hold a trial against Sam Kahamba Kutesa and cautioned against any impact advocating from whoever may be affected by the situation.

Foreign affairs minister is accused of receiving $500,000 ( approximately Shs1.8 billion ) as a bribe from a potential investor and he was guilty of corruption in a United States court in December 2018.

Towards the end of last month, one of the concerned citizens presented a petition to court to have Kutesa tried over these corruption allegations.

Before the trial, Anti-Corruption Civil Society Groups ( ACCSG ) requested that Kutesa should resign as a minister.

A few weeks back, the Attorney General cleared Kutesa of any misconduct after he was incriminated by a United States court of bribery.
