While sleeping on January 3, he says he heard gunshots and he hid under his bed and was able to identify the attackers.

The following day he says he recorded a statement at Police and another one later on.

During cross examination, the witness maintained that Shk Kamoga printed the death fliers, saying that he himself confessed it during one of the meetings.

On whether he believed the suspects indeed killed Sheikhs Bahiga and Kirya, Jemba said he was not entirely certain.

“In my statement I didn’t mention of the suspects in the Kirya case because by the time this statement was recorded sheikh Kirya had not yet been killed,” he said.

Sheikh Jemba is being accused of staging the attack on his house, by the defense led by Counsel McDusman Kabega who claims the former and his guard fired the shots at his home and pinned it on the suspects.

The case has been adjourned to tomorrow for further hearing.
