They were testifying against the three ministers Sam Kutesa of Foreign Affairs, John Nasasira, the Government Chief Whip and Rukutana Mwesigwa, State minister for Labour. They are accused of causing the government a financial loss of Shs 14 billion.

The trial was presided over by Justice Paul Magamba at the Anti-Corruption High Court in Kampala.

Bagonza who presented the court minutes said that the ministers committed government to fund the construction of the driveways, parking yard and marina.

But during the defense cross examination, he contradicted himself saying that the accused ministers did not commit government to fund the construction and never convened any sub-committee meeting.

However the contradictions were not explained properly even when Prosecutor Sydney Asubo questioned Onen why he had signed on the memorandum of understanding between the proprietor of Munyonyo, Sudhir Ruparelia and the government.

Bagonza read the minutes of May 17, 2005 meeting that took place at Speke Resort Munyonyo when the ministers inspected the facility to ascertain whether it was ready to host the visiting heads of state. The munyonyo delegation was led by Sam Kutesa.

Eight witnesses have been lined up to testify against the ministers.
