The trial of suspended State Minister for Labour and Industrial relations Hebert Kabafunzaki has resumed Wednesday at the Anti-corruption Court in Kololo, Kampala.

Among the witnesses lined up against the embattled minister is Muhammad Hamid, the proprietor of Aya Investment Company.

Hamid turned up at Court today to pin Kabafunzaki on allegations of soliciting and receiving a bribe.

The legislator’s woes began almost a year back when he was arrested for allegedly soliciting for a bribe.

He was arrested at Serena Hotel as he allegedly picked a Shs5m bribe as partial payment for Shs10m he had reportedly solicited from businessman Mohammed Hamid of Aya Group.

According to prosecution, the money was solicited for to clear Aya Group’s name against cases of sexual harassment of its employees.

Following his arrest, he was immediately relieved of his ministerial duties and is charged along with his aides; Brian Mugabo and a relative Bruce Lubowa.

The trial is before Justice Margaret Tibulya.
