The disheartening news reaching TheSpy Uganda from Europe reveals that city socialite Sulaiman Kabangala commonly known as (SK) Mbuga has been extradited from Dubai to Denmark to face several charges of fraud. Mbuga was arrested one and half years ago in Dubai by security agencies after Denmark court put him on redline. He has been in detention without trial as the Denmark police was reportedly still working on the paper work to pick him and face trial.
It’s estimated that his trial involve more than shs10bn in a fake gold deal which he failed to supply in accordance with the agreement.
Mbuga is also wanted alongside his wife Angella Chebet after Authorities in Sweden had requested the UAE government to hand over Mr.Mbuga in a case of 53m Kronor (about Shs23 billion) that his Swedish wife allegedly fleeced from a company account she jointly ran with her former boyfriend, Mr Sten Heinsoo.
The UAE government handed over Mr Mbuga to Danish police in Dubai who flew him to Denmark.
Mbuga, has been in jail for one year and seven days in Al Awiir Central Prison in Dubai.
His wife, Angella Vivienne Chebet, 35, who had been living with him in Dubai, has since returned to Uganda.
Some of his friends like Meddie Ssentogo, are bitter with the Ugandan authorities that they have not done too much to rescue Mbuga who has been one of the job creators in the country after setting up a yet to be completed hospital.
Meddie said if the ministry of Foreign affairs had tried to negotiate with UAE authorities, Mbuga would have been released so that he sorts out the cases out of jail without languishing in European prisons.
All city socialites who used to hang out with Mbuga in high end places like Gurnor and Serena hotel have now vowed to get good international lawyers to rescue their colleague.
