Ntege a.k.a Kyuma kya Yesu, was on Monday attending the Kabaka's anniversary celebrations at Kaweeri in Mubende town when he attacked Nsubuga.

The Buweekula county chief who was addressing the Kabaka had called the members of parliament attending the function to be introduced and prostrate before the Kabaka.

The chief Magistrate Hellen Ajiro read a charge of common assault and remanded him to Kaweeeri prison until August 9.

Attending the court were politicians, mostly from political parties like Democratic Party(DP) and Forum for Democratic change (FDC). Among them was Haji Sinan Kaggwa, the chairman of FDC in Mubende district.
