The Kisutu Resident Magistrate’s Court yesterday adjourned the case against former cabinet minister and Muhambwe Member of Parliament Arcado Ntagazwa (65), his son and another person until May 7, this year.
The case was adjourned by resident magistrate Devotha Kisoka because the presiding magistrate, Lioad Chamshama, was carrying out other official duties.
Prosecution led by state attorney Ladislous Komanya claimed in court that investigation into the case was going on.
Other accused in the case are Senator Mirelya (60), a resident of Kimara on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam, and Webhale Ntagazwa (29), a resident of Kimara Temboni.
According to the charge sheet, the accused committed the offence on October 22, 2009 at Msasani Mikoroshini in Kinondoni, Dar es Salaam City.
Komanya alleged that on the material date the accused, with intent to defraud, obtained 5,000 T-shirts and 5,000 caps, all valued at 74,950,000 from Noel Severe by falsely pretending that they would pay for the goods within one month.
The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges and the first accused, Mirelya, is still in custody after failing to meet bail conditions.
Ntagazwa and his son are out on bail.
