David FK Mpanga (AF Mpanga) Timothy Masembe Kanyerezi (MMAKS) are part of the 20 strong list of witnesses contained in Sudhir’s defense.
Also named are Tumusiime Mutebile, Justine Bagyenda, auditors from KPMG, Delloite, Pwc and Sudhir’s wife among others.
Sudhir himself contends that Mpanga and Masembe are acting in violation of the client – advocate relationship, stressing a conflict of interest on both lawyers.
He further says that notwithstanding the CSRA agreement both parties entered into, he has on numerous occasion instructed the same lawyers.
“The Plaintiff further instructed the law firm M/s A. F. Mpanga Advocates (Bowmans) notwithstanding the said law firms’ conflict, says Sudhir.
Lawyer usually don’t like embarrassing their colleagues in court but what’s most likely going to happen is either the two men will recuse themselves or face the brunt of KAA.
The usual practice in law is that the moment you are cited as a potential witness, you recuse yourself. This is ethical practice.
