" I am innocent of these allegations. I have never met these so called directors and anyone with evidence should report to EACC," he said.
Wasanga too said that he had never met the two directors of the Smith and Ouzman company and that he was also innocent of the said charges.
" I have never met the people who have been jailed and I implore anyone who claims to have any information to report," he added.
