Just when she was planning a mega come-back after concluding her four-year prison term at Luzira, city socialite Shanita Namuyimbwa aka Bad Black is in for a surprise.
The incarcerated socialite is leaving Luzira prisons next week on Monday.
Unfortunate news coming in indicates that her ex-lover David Greenhalgh has been arrested and locked away.
Police sources tell us Greenhalgh allegedly issued a false cheque worth Shs335m to a city businessman.
The cheque obviously bounced when the businessman cashed it after which he rushed to police and opened up a case against the white man.
Greenhalgh was swiftly picked by police detectives on Wednesday and is currently being held at Central Police Station in Kampala.
In an interesting twist, Greenhalgh claims the businessman instead stole a leaflet from his cheque book and forged his signature.
Bad Black’s brother Edison Kirabira, told The Observer that Greenhalgh had already purchased a posh house for Bad Black in Kansanga.
Her former Munyonyo residence was confiscated to recover court costs when she was in Luzira prison.
The white man even gave Kirabira Shs20m to purchase four executive dresses, four pairs of good shoes, cosmetics and some jewellery for Black.
He reportedly bought four dresses at Shs 300,000 each and four pairs of shoes at Shs 200,000 each and other items he later delivered to the socialite.
Black was sentenced by the then Anti-corruption court judge, Catherine Bamugemereire, in July 2012 after being found guilty of embezzling Shs 11bn from DaviShan Company she co-owned with Greenhalgh.
Her co-accused Meddie Ssentongo who was found guilty of connivance was imprisoned for 18 months and later freed.
