However, Medard Lubega Sseggona, the lead counsel for Kyagulanyi said that the actions of the state like arresting of their party supporters, bribing of their witnesses and a siege at their office at Kamwokya had hindered them from filing in the agreed time.
State Prosecutor Gertrude Nyipir told the court that on 6 February 2021, Ouma and others still at large broke into a house in Apollo grounds in Kitgum Municipality belonging to Stephen Patrick Lokoya at about 8 pm.
The prosecution alleges that between June and December 2019, Nakityo, now CAO for Buliisa and Andrew Byaruhanga, the Chief Finance Officer of Ntungamo and Julius Ashaba, the Information Technology officer at Ntungamo Municipality through their positions embezzled the money meant for staff salaries and wages.
Last week, Kyagulanyi was supposed to file his affidavit evidence before February 14, however he was only able to file 50 affidavits in the agreed time. When he returned on February 15 to file another more than 150 affidavits, the Supreme Court registry declined to receive them arguing that they were filed out of time. He then filed an application seeking leave of court to submit them.
Justice Stephen Mubiru said he was convinced beyond reasonable doubt that Omuria committed the offence. Justice Mubiru said that he based on the testimony of the victim’s son who told the court that after they were chased from the house, he peeped through the makeshift door and saw Omuria raping her mother.
The State prosecution lead by Martin Nabasa told court that between December 2020 and January 2021 this year, Nasur and others at large stole 29 million shillings from the party account in Centenary Bank, Wobulenzi branch.
