Appearing before Beatrice Kainza, the City Hall Grade One Magistrate on Tuesday, Chelangat, who is also the last state witness said she had found significant similarities in the signatures on documents the accused used for receipting the money and their statements.
According to Muhumuza, he was surprised by the questions and asked Kipoi why he was asking him such questions. Kipoi reportedly replied that M23 was comprised of Ugandans and Rwandese who would be difficult to deal with as they plot to overthrow government.
Muyanja argued that the witness was supposed to defend his testimony given that he is the one testifying against the accused persons. The lawyer had asked Kasaija to explain the events that unfolded when he arrested the accused persons on January 19th, 20th and 21st 2018.
