Hearing of an appeal filed by the inspector general of government challenging the decision of the anti-corruption court to acquit former works and Transport minister Engineer Ibrahim Byadala of the Mukono Katosi road scam has been pushed to the next convenient session.
The appeal has been pushed by the three court appeal justices led by deputy chief justice Richard Butala after parties informed the court they were not ready bro proceed with the hearing.
Engineer Byadala was acquitted in August 2018 by the anti-corruption court judge Lawrence Kidudu after he found no evidence implicating Byadala in the 24.7billion scam.
Justice Kidudu ruled that the former minister was driven by political and goodwill motives rather than criminal to sign the contract with the fake American construction company to upgrade Mukono Katosi road because it had become politically sensitive and not for sparking riots due to delays in its construction.
Being dissatisfied with the decision of justice Kidudu, the IGG appealed before the court of appeal seeking to overturn it.
In the appeal the IGG states that she is dissatisfied with the decision of the anti-corruption court to let engineer Byadala out of the hook and three others namely; engineer Belnado Kimeze Ssebuga, Marvin Byaruhara, and Isaac Mugote on all cancel of abuse of office causing a financial loss to the government and disobeying lawful orders.
