Hearing in Appeal Case for Kitatta delayed by lawyers

Convicted Boda Boda 2010 group leader Abdul Kitatta whose hearing in his appeal against an eight year jail sentence handed him on May 14 was due yesterday waited for his lawyers to appear but did not do so.

Kitatta’s lawyers say they were not prepared for the case by yesterday making Kitatta go back to jail without hearing of his case.

Kitatta was brought before the General Court Martial by prison warders before being taken back later after waiting the whole day.

Kitatta accuses the General Court Martial of relying on weak evidence provided by prosecution which brought charges of illegal possession of firearms and ammunition against him.

Kitatta argues that shifting the burden of proof from prosecution to the him, the convict violates the rules of evidence.

He argues that it should be prosecution to prove their allegations rather than him.

He further says that court failed to summon material witnesses who he deemed necessary to substantiate the evidence brought against him.
