Judgment of a case in which convicted former local government permanent secretary John Muhanguzi Kashaka appealed seeking to overturn the ten year jail handed to him for his role in the bungled procurement of 70,000 bicycles meant for LC1 chairpersons ahead of 2011 general elections has flopped.
Kashska who is currently out of prison after Court of Appeal set him free on bail on Monday turned up at court ready for judgment but was told it was not ready because one of the judges on the panel was away.
Deo Nzeimana, the Court registrar said Justice Hellen Obura was handling a criminal session in Arua district and a new judgment date would be communicated
Kashaka’s trouble started two years ago when the Anti-Corruption Court sentenced him to 10 years after he was found guilty of causing government a financial loss of Sh4.2 billion in botched procurement of 70.000 bicycles.
Kashaka was jointly convicted with five other former local government ministry officials and one consultant.
They include; Henry Bamutura (ex- Principal Accountant), Mr Robert Mwebaze (ex- Principal Procurement Officer), Mr Sam Emorutu Erongot ( ex-Assistant Commissioner Policy and Planning), Mr Adam Bond Alum (ex-member evaluation committee) and Mr Timothy Musherure (ex-consultant).
