Saulos Chilima: That is also true.

Lawyer for Chilima, Marshal Chilenga rose to object AG Kaphale’s questioning. Chilenga said he had noted the answers to the questions on duplicate tally sheets.

“There have been 2-3 questions whose answers are the same. Can they not be treated as a bunch and have one question asked so that we do not delay? said Chilenga.

However, Kaphale said he has to mention every form because he has to be on record. He said he has lost cases before for being not on record.

“I hope I am not being led into a trap. As I said, I have lost cases before. So I have made a compromise I will only mention 20 forms but the witness will have to be checking whether there are signatures in the forms that I will be mentioning,” said Kaphale.

Kaphale further explained that there are certain forms that do not have any signature hence, the forms cannot be treated as the same as suggested by Chilima’s lawyer.
