During the hearing, the prosecution told the court that in December 2017, Ssenkyama in his capacity as Malongo LC III chairperson unlawfully arbitrated in the matter of aggravated defilement against a twelve-year-old girl who was in primary five at Lwemiyaga primary school in Lwengo.
“This is a matter of 2010 that was resurrected in 2020, for political witch hunt. They brought the same charge sheet as if they are accusing him of the first time, in the circumstances we pray that this matter is dismissed. The same issue has always been mentioned by the state but they have failed to amend the charge sheet if the state is interested in the matter they would have addressed those anomalies before resurrecting the charges,” he argued.
However, on Monday court failed to proceed with the trial after the defense lawyers led by Medard Lubega Ssegona told the magistrate that the state had failed disclose how they intend to proceed with prosecution. Ssegona specifically argued that the state was erroneously reinstating a case of 2010, which was heard and dismissed by court because of poor prosecution and lack of evidence against his client.
