Anglo leasing case fails to kick off for lack of witness

The hearing of the Anglo Leasing case failed to start today after the prosecution declined to avail a witness.

The case was scheduled for three days before Chief Magistrate Felix Kombo.

But prosecutor Mercy Gateru made an application to postpone the case until the first week of December.

Gateru informed the court that EACC is experiencing difficulties in presenting the witness and she learnt about the inability to secure the witness as expected late.

She sought to have the next witness to testify via video link but defence counsel Caren Saadia opposed the same.

Saadia said: “the amount of money the EACC has spent in visiting the UK for investigations is more than that of bringing the witnesses”.

She also questioned why the prosecution is dragging to avail EACC detective Gideon Rukaria to testify.

Rashmi Kamani, Deepak Kamani, Joseph Magari and David Onyonka among others are facing charges of abuse of office and conspiracy to defraud the government.

They have all denied the charges.
