Following the submission by Hon Aisha Jumwa on Friday, 3rd at the court, she has urged the court start the entire process a fresh as she claims that the magistrate who was presiding over her graft case was transferred.
As she was explaining the matter, Jumwa argued that since the magistrate that was presiding over case is no longer in office, therefore, the whole process has to be started a fresh.
It was revealed that the idea of starting a fresh will create more chance for the witnesses who are behind her case and therefore, it would be the best option.
