Court to Hear 9.6bn/ - Financial Scam Case

THE landmark criminal case involving six nations against Kenyan tycoon Donbosco Ooga Gichana and prominent Arusha -based lawyer, Median Mwale, has taken a new turn after the prosecution disclosed particulars showing how the duo and others money laundered over 9.6bn/-.

This followed the move by the prosecution to complete the investigations into the trial. Principal State Attorney Oswald Tibabyekomya said that investigations on the matter had taken about three years, as the case involved jurisdictions from six different nations.


The countries involved in the trial, of which two former officials with CRDB Bank, Boniface Mwimbwa and Elias Bdejembi, are allegedly linked, include Tanzania, United States of America, United Kingdom, Kenya, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

"Indeed, it is a case of its own kind and it is the first in Tanzania's judicial history. We expect 41 witnesses from these nations to testify during the trial at the High Court.

The committal proceedings have already been held and we are awaiting a trial date to be arranged by the High Court," he said.
