Col. Shaban Bantariza's case in the General Court Martial has failed to take off due to the absence of a State witness. The witness could not be located and switched off phones.


Bantariza faces three counts of fraud, tampering with documents and attempted fraud.

Prosecution alleges that on February 3, 2011 at Akamba Uganda Ltd, Plot 12 Old Port Bell Road in Kampala district, being the director of NALI, he received a tractor with a registration number UAN 652Z and its accessories donated to NALI by the ministry of finance.

He instead claimed to have purchased the said tractor at sh67m and put it to personal use. He was arrested on Monday July 1, 2013 from his home in Bweyogerere, Wakiso district.
