In a twist of events, comedian Anne Kansiime’s name mysteriously appeared on the list of people suspected to be involved in the Katosi road saga and it’s on this note that she was on the verge of being dragged to court.
Court heard that the comedian signed and approved the advance payment security guarantee which enabled Eutaw Construction Company, which is under the stewardship of Apollo Senkeeto, to win the contract to upgrade the Mukono-Katosi road.
During cross examination of two witnesses, defense lawyers demanded to know why the comedian had not been arrested yet witnesses had presented incriminating evidence against her, but it was later proved that, the person to be incriminated was actually Mary Kansiime Nyende from Housing Finance Bank head of corporate banking and not comedian Anne Kansiime.
The lawyers who seemed obsessed with the comedian demanded to know under which authority she operated and why she had signed the documents. They were brought back to reality when court broke into a thunderous laughter, and in a chorus, corrected them.
In his defense, counsel William Were said that (Anne) Kansiime is a personal friend and that is why he kept on referring to her. The comedienne however declined to comment on the matter when Chano8 sorted for her view.
