All the accused persons, however, denied the charges. They also denied other charges of being in possession of unaccustomed sugar and government’s relief rice and milk which were found in the car. The magistrate slapped the five suspects with a Sh5 million bond each with surety of similar amounts. Nekesa ordered that they return to court on October 17 for the mention of the case. She also rejected a plea by their lawyer to have Sh130,000 seized from them returned. Nekesa allowed the prosecution to keep the money and said that will be used as an exhibit during the hearing of the case.
