Troubled socialite cum businessman Suleiman Kabangali Mbuga better known as SK Mbuga a few days back appeared before United Araba emirates (UAE) court over his alleged fraud charges.
It is understood that Mbuga was found guilty and has since been sentenced to deportation and a life ban from the UAE.
However, what is yet to be disclosed is whether Mbuga will be deported to Uganda or Sweden since the Swedish government had requested for his extradition as par their letter date July 4th 2018.
Mbuga has been in Awiir Central Jail for eight months having been arrested in January for committing fraud.
The pencil thin businessman was accused of swindling over 53million Swedish krona (Shs23bn) by Sten Heinsoo, a Swedish national.
However, last week there were reports that Mbuga would only be released from jail after paying Shs900m to Oman businessman Ali Ahmad Bur Omar who accuse the Ugandan of issuing a bounced cheque of $250,000.
After his arrest, it was then reported that the fraud deal also involved his wife Angella Vivienne Birungi although she was she was not arrested.
According to Sten Heinsoo the plaintiff, the money had disappeared abroad when he tried to help a female friend in this case SK Mbuga’s wife Vivienne to transport gold from Uganda to Sweden.
Talk is that Mbuga’s arrest was not in connection to the alleged Swedish krona 53 million fraud but rather a ‘deal gone bad’ involving city socialite and fashionista Kim Swagga, a close associate of his (Mbuga) who is currently based in USA.
