According to the registrar, there is proof to the satisfaction of the court that Pemba is about to leave the country subsequently calling for issuance of an arrest warrant.
“Upon his non -appearance before this honourable court after having been duly served with a notice to show cause why he should not furnish security for his appearance,” says the court in an order addressed to Mutesasira associates and court bailiffs.
