Afsatu Kabba
ACC’s Last Major Witness Enhances Afsatu Kabba’s Defence & Reveals how the Alleged ‘abuse of office’ Pre-dated the ACC 2008 Act
Jul 1, 2010, 17:18

The final Major witness in the matter of the State versus Haja Afsatu Kabba has told the Court that his employment of Abdul Malik Jobe at Bumbuna Project was procedurally correct and that at absolutely no point was he put under pressure by Haja Afsatu Kabba to employ Abdul Malik Jobe, the APC’s Youth Leader for the South. His relationship with Afsatu Kabba was “excellent” said witness. Of note is ACC’s very own document tendered in Court as  “evidence” yesterday has confirmed that the Employment of Malik Jobe occurred on May 1st 2008 which is several months before the ACC 2008 Act was passed in September 2008. The 2008 Anti Corruption Act is not retroactive.

The trial has now been adjourned to next week Tuesday July 6th 2010 when the last batch of minor witnesses are expected to be brought from the Provinces to testify in this highly sensational criminal trial.
