Anti-Corruption Court Judge Margaret Tibulya is assigned to hear the bribery case against suspended State minister for Labour Herbert Kabafunzaki.
Kabafunzaki will today first plead to the corruption charges against him before the hearing opens.
The Rukiga County MP is charged with soliciting and receiving a Shs5m bribe from Aya Group chairman in order to help the latter receive media publicity clearing him of the sexual harassment allegations that had been brought against him by his former female employee at Hilton Hotel.
Kabafunzaki is jointly charged with Brian Mugabo, his political assistant and Bruce Lubowa, an interior designer from Wakiso District.
The minister faces two counts of corruption and two counts of conspiracy to commit a felony.
He was committed to the High Court’s Anti-Corruption Court by the lower magistrate’s court about a fortnight ago.
The prosecution said police had completed investigations into the case.
Prosecution states that Kabafunzaki committed the offence on April 6, at Aya Hotel in Kampala.
