Criminal case No 239/2016 which involves the recently dismissed Regional Administrative Secretary (RAS), Amantius Msole (53), was adjourned on Thursday morning until November 14, this year, as investigations were not complete yet.

Three co-accused suspects, who came before Bukoka Resident Magistrate Dennice Mpelembwa, were former Kagera Regional Chief Accountant, Simbaufoo Swai (53), Bukoba Municipal Council Director, Kelvin Makonda (56) and CRDB Bukoba Branch Manager, Karlo Sendwa (56).

Prosecuting, Principal State Attorney Hashim Ngole told the court that on September 19, this year, the four accused jointly conspired to commit a felony by opening a different bank account Number 0150225617300, contrary to directives from the Prime Minister, Mr Kassim Majaliwa.

According to Mr Ngole, the Prime Minister had directed the Kagera regional authorities to open official account Number 0152225617300 at the CRDB Bank - Bukoba Branch to collect donations towards the support of Kagera earthquake victims. The accused were also charged with the misuse of their office contrary to Section 17/2005 of the Prevention of Corruption Act.

They were not asked to enter any plea as the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has not yet given directives on the case. Magistrate Mpelembwa adjourned the case until November 14, this year for another mention.

Defence Counsel Josephat Rweyemamu, on behalf of first accused (Msole) asked the court to order the Director for Public Prosecutions (DPP) to speed up investigations because the case had public interest.

However, Mr Ngole challenged the prayer saying the DPP was guided by law to conduct thorough investigations without any interference. The four accused were released on bail with two sureties each signing a 5m/- bond.

They were ordered to surrender their passports and should not travel outside Kagera Region without the court's permission. President Dr John Magufuli revoked the appointment of Msole and Makonda, over fraud accusations.

The two were fired after it was found out that they had opened a bank account using a similar name with the official account used to collect donations to support the victims of Kagera earthquake as a way to earn money fraudulently.

The Prime Minister, Mr Kassim Majaliwa, also suspended Swai over his involvement in the plot.

The region's authorities opened the account by the name of 'Kamati Maafa Kagera' following the tremor, which hit the region on September 10, killing 17 people and damaging properties, including houses, rendering thousands of residents homeless.
