The Resident Magistrate Judge presiding over the case, Patricia Kisinda, ruled that, after a thorough review of 13 submitted evidence and 12 exhibits from the public prosecutors, the courts found Sabaya and seven co-accused with the case to answer over accused charges.
Following the rule from the preliminary hearing, a defendant’s attorney Mr. Mosses Muhuna informed the court that his client would call in not less than ten witnesses in defense along with exhibits.
