A suppliers’ credit financing which forms the base of the multi-billion Anglo-Leasing trial was approved by Cabinet, a witness has said.

According to Mr Ignatius Wekesa, the investigating officer in the case who is being cross examined and the final prosecution witness, said that the government gave the nod for the supplies of security items on Cabinet approval at the time saying before magistrate Felix Kombo that a look at the documentation, mainly, correspondences between the concerned parties at the Office of the President, Treasury and respective security agencies “do not show any evidence of conspiracy.”

The witness was cross examined by lawyer Edward Oonge where he asked him to verify the authenticity of the documents exchanged between the parties and explain what inferences he drew as an investigator.

Wekesa also confirmed that the firm at the centre of the trial-Sound Day Corporation, was well known to the Government of Kenya and had dealings since 1993 where it had supplied surveillance equipment before.

Mr Wekesa said since the nature of transaction related to security, it had a limited tender regime.

The case was adjourned to November 15 2022 for further cross-examination of the investigating officer. The accused have denied  charges preffered against them and are out on bond.
