President Museveni is yet to appoint a new DPP after Richard Butera was appointed a judge.

However, Kazinda’s lawyer, Anthony Wameh asked Court to discontinue charges against his client.

“Proceedings against A1 should be discontinued until the State opens up on the matter. It is common knowledge and judicial notice that you cannot have the DPP in two minutes,” said Wameh.

He further requested the court to remove the charges against the accused.

The Chief Magistrate for the Anti-corruption court, Irene Akankwasa later adjourned the case to August 27 for the mention.

The accused were represented by Anthony Wameh, Ahmad Kalule, Precious Ngabirano, Frank Kizito and David Kasadha.

Godfrey Kazinda together with Martin Owor, Beatrice Kezaabu and Hussein Katumwa are accused of having forged fuel receipts and causing a financial loss to the Office of the Prime Minister.

Kazinda was last month sentenced to five years in prison by Justice David Wangutusi of the Anti Corruption Court.

He is serving five years for abuse of office, two years for forgery and another two for unlawful possession of government stores.
