The resentful Mungatana admitted to the court that there was no use in his doubting his business partner because the transactions were open and obvious, and based on his way of living, he was a prosperous individual.

“After a period of six months, I received 10 million. All these transactions were in hash, there is no way I was going to suspect that anything would go wrong because I would go to his place even now, you find big vehicles and his apartment with expensive decor,” he narrated.
