Upon pronouncement of judgment by the court, Kayabwe burst into tears attracting the interest of onlookers within the court grounds.
Kayabwe was facing three counts of forgery, uttering a false document and fraudulent disposing of a trust property.
In the first count, it was alleged between January 2005 and May 2005, Kayabwe forged a deed of transfer of property number F/687/A1/D/34 purporting to show that it was genuinely issued and signed by Mirriam Bilali when in fact not.
In the second count, it was alleged that between January 2005 and May 2006, Kayabwe uttered a deed of transfer of property number F/687/A1/D/34 to the Ministry of Lands.
In the third count, Kayabwe being a trustee of property number F/687/A1/D/34, is alleged to with intent to defraud, converted the said property to Benny Chundu without authority.
Evidence before the court is that Chundu’s contractor erroneously built on the land belonging to the Trust while he was away in diplomatic service.
When Chundu was recalled in 2004, his lawyers brought the issue to his attention and further approached the Ministry of Lands to help resolve it.
After a meeting was held with members of the Muslim Women Trust Fund, it was agreed that the Trust be given an alternative land.
Chungu, in the presence of Trust members, signed a deed of transfer.
And when the mater came up for judgment Principal Resident Magistrate Mwaka Mikalile said the State failed to prove the case beyond all reasonable doubt against Kayabwe.
She said the prosecution failed to prove that Kayabwe forged the deed of transfer and found her not guilty of the offence.
