British businessman pins Bad Black…

British businessman David Greenhalgh has accused his Ugandan fiancé Shanita Namuyimbwa, commonly known as ‘Bad Black’, of conspiring with other people to defraud his companies of $9 million (Shs20 billion).

Mr Greenhalgh told the Anti-Corruption Court before Justice Catherine Bamugemereire yesterday that Ms Namuyimbwa, who he met on the streets, conspired with various people to embezzle his company money that had been earmarked for real estate business in Kampala.

“…Shanita showed me a piece of land in Nkumba (in Entebbe) which she claimed to have bought with the company funds to set up Daveshan Hotel with its entire budget to construct the hotel but knowing her ability she did not process the documents alone,” testified Mr Greenhalgh in a 30-minute testimony doubting whether the property shown allegedly bought from the said money were of value.

Mr Greenhalgh added: “What is most annoying is that she never showed me any land title or receipt for purchase of these property she always insisted that they are with lawyers in the land registry.”

Prosecution alleges that Ms Namuyimbwa and others still at large between September 2010 and May 2011, while a co-director of Daveshan Development Company Ltd stole $3,824,130 (Shs11b), which came into her possession by virtue of her employment.

It is further alleged that Mr Meddie Ssentongo conspired with Ms Namuyimbwa between the months of October 2011 and February 2011 to defraud Daveshan Development Company Ltd of $ 9million (Shs20 billion).

The duo, however, deny the charges.

Meanwhile, Mr Ssentongo was yesterday remanded to Luzira Prison until today for court to determine his bail application.

Justice Bamugemereire set February 25 as the date for further hearing of the case.
