Teddy Afro appeared at the court on Wednesday, May 22 wearing eyeglasses and a black t-shirt as usual. There was a long queue of people waiting to enter the court room. His mother was also present at the court for the first time.
Teddy’s case was adjourned to may 22 to hear the eyewitnesses the prosecutor would present. The prosecutor presented three police witnesses who are said to be on the spot at the time. The first witness told the court that he had seen one green car speeding in the middle of two Lada taxis hitting a man who fell drunk on the street and that he registered the car’s plate number. The other witness also testified that he saw the victim dead at the spot being called by his friend – the first witness. The third witness was a police who sketched a plan of the spot where the accident occurred.
From various reports published on the trial, it could be learnt that there are vivid inconsistencies between the facts the witnesses provided and that witnesses were not able to talk at ease.
Teddy stayed in kaliti for about one month and seven days and still remains there until the sluggish trial process comes up with a dead end.
Teddy was moving his head in disagreement and people in the court were murmuring on certain words of the witnesses. At the closing of the trial some people were saying “we love you Teddy”
