Former NTV and Bukedde TV presenter Justine Nameere was last Thursday sent to Luzira prison for six months by Execution and Bailiff’s High Court registrar, Flavia Nabakooza, over failure to pay a Ug Sh 55 million debt she owes to businessman Emmanuel Muwonge.
Nameere, also the daughter to the minister of agriculture Vincent Bamulanzeki Ssempijja is accused of selling a Mercedes Benz car worth Ug Shs 55 million to Muwonge yet she had placed it as security at Platinum Credits, as indicated by the court documents.
“You are hereby commanded and required to take and receive Nameere into the civil prison and keep her imprisoned for a period of six months or until she pays the debt,” Nabakooza ordered.
Namere had agreed with Muwonge to pay the money by February 2019 but unfortunately failed to thus the arrest
“We carried out investigations and found that she had many cases and so we decided to deploy people at different Police stations with her picture so that she can be arrested,” Muwonge’s lawyer Allan Tumwesigye said.
As if that wasn’t enough, Nameere’s husband one Raymond Kagimba Mugimba who is the head of sales and marketing at BBS Television was also remanded to Luzira on Friday for allegedly forging an introduction letter for a loan that was allegedly signed by Vision Group’s senior advertising manager Harriet Mpora, to Uganda Micro Foundation Limited.
Raymond is expected to return to court on the 24th of this month
