THE widow of slain Pabbo LC3 Movement chief Alfred Bongomin on Tuesday broke down in court as she narrated the ordeal before the death of her husband.

Hillary Nsambu writes that Mary Auma Bongomin, 58, a housewife and farmer of Pabbo sub-county in Gulu district, was testifying in a case against two Members of Parliament, Reagan Okumu and Michael Nyeko Ocula, who were indicted with three others for the murder of Bongomin.

The other accused men now on trial before Justice John Bosco Katutsi are Stephen Otim, Ochan Laryang and David Ocieng.

Led by the deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Simon Byabakama Mugenyi, Auma, wearing spectacles, had started her testimony without a problem, but she removed her glasses to wipe away tears as she told court how her husband was tied kandooya (hands twisted and bound behind) and made to sit with his legs stretched in front by two armed men and a kadogo (youth) before they killed him. She said she could not recognise the attackers, as it was dark.

However, she composed herself and was able to conclude her testimony.
