    5th February 2019 All parties were in court except the PW1 who was to conclude his Examination and cross-examination. The prosecution informed the court that PW1 called and told him he was down with malaria while he was on transit to court. The counsel to the 1st defendant expressed his displeasure to court as regards the attitude of the prosecution from the beginning of the case. They have 7 witnesses and none of them have been examined. He further urged the court to allow other witnesses to give their evidence because there is no provision of law that mandates a witness to conclude before another witness can be examined. He also told the court that his Client is under suspension without pay. Counsel to the 2nd defendant reiterates the fact that all adjournments was at the instance of the prosecution. He expressed the negative impact of the trial on his Client even though he is being paid while on suspension. He urged the court to close the case if the prosecution comes to court with another frivolous excuse on the next date of adjournment. The prosecution pleaded again and told the court that the issues of suspension without being paid mention by the 1st defendant’s Counsel is not the business of a criminal court.
