Two witnesses have pinned the former head of the National Leadership Institute (NALI), Col. Shaban Bantariza in the fraud case at the General Court Martial.

Haji Kakande on Tuesday told court  presided over by chairman Moses Ddiba Ssentongo that he signed an introduction letter for Col. Bantariza to be given a tractor from Akamba Uganda Limited.

Others who include Haji Yunusu Kakande and John Bosco Komununguru told court they were harassed during Col. Bantariza’s tenure as director of NALI.

Bantariza is alleged to have received a tractor donated to the institution by the ministry of finance but later claimed to have purchased it at sh67m.
