Nairobi news.

Uganda’s deputy Attorney General Mwesigwa Rukutana has shocked the public after a photo of himself herding cattle while armed with a semi-automatic rifle went rival on social media.

The undated photo shows the senior government official armed with an AK-47 with a herd of cattle in the background.

Interestingly, when put to task by a local publication, the AG appeared to suggest there was nothing wrong with the picture.


“What is it was me in the photo,” he said. “Let’s assume it was mine, what could be wrong with that.”

Others explained the photo best highlights the security status of the country.
