The Anti Corruption Court in Kampala has been directed to clear the former Principal accountant in the Office of the Prime Minister, Godfrey Kazinda of all charges levied against him.
Godfrey Kazinda was a Principal Accountant at the Ministry of Finance deployed at the Office of the Prime Minister. His trial started on 7th January 2013 and has been going since then without any light at the end of the tunnel.
The Constitutional Court has issued a permanent order prohibiting the state from using any process of the court to initiate and prosecute Kazinda for any offenses founded on the same facts in connection to his former place of employment.
A panel of five justices led by Stephen Musota has also granted all declarations sought by Kazinda during the petition. Other justices on the panel included; Kenneth Kakuru, Cheborion Barishaki, and Ezekiel Muhanguzi now a Supreme Court Judge.
“The petitioner has proved his case and therefore I do hereby grant all the twelve declarations sought in the petitions logically follow from the findings of fact and law during the determination of issues” Musota ruled.
The judgment was read out to the parties on Friday by the Court registrar, Babirye Mary.
