By Kidega Livingstone

The final court hearing of the case between the Finance Minister, Salvatore Garang Mabiordit and the accused Zacharia Makuach has been adjourned to 14th of September 2020.

Speaking to Journalists after the adjournment, the Finance Minister Defend Lawyer, Peter Dau Akoldit said the court adjourned the hearing because the Judge in the Court wasn’t ready for judgment.

“The court hearing has been adjourned to the date of 14th of this month and that is next week because the Judge of the Juba Court said the judgment wasn’t ready (yesterday),” Lawyer Dau told journalists.

Last month the same court extended the hearing for yesterday 4th of September and that was after the defend Lawyer of the Minister announced  that the evidences of the accuser, Makuach were not true and he (Lawyer) had objected them.

Makuach was sued by the Minister four months ago over alleged article that the Minister said it had placed him in public contempt.
