Mutabwire who is facing charges ranging from corruption to diversion and massive loss of funds at the ministry lost his car, Reg. No. UAU 418G (Black Harrier) to the attackers.

He sustained injuries on the head and he is now admitted at Kadic Hospital Bukoto.

IGG Justice Mulyagonja in October, 2015 said that findings indicate that Mutabwire participated in the “willful and unexplained diversion of funds, sanctioned fictitious payments to a large number of employees in the ministry which were channeled to their personal bank accounts purportedly to carry out official work.”

She noted that Mutabwire had embarked on a process of intimidating and harassing some of the recipients of the suspected fraudulent payments to stop them from cooperating with officers who were investigating the scam.
