Singer Stecia Mayanja’s troubled husband, Abbas Mubiru, has been sent back to Luzira prison on remand.
Abbas appeared at Buganda Road Court on Thursday to apply for bail after being sent on remand last week by over land fraud.
Abbas, a land broker, appeared before Grade One Magistrate, Ms Joan Aciro, and denied one count of obtaining Shs 45.5m by false pretences from a one, Ronald Ddanze.
Prosecution states that between October and November 2014, in Kampala, Mubiru a resident of Katale-Bunamwaya in Wakiso district obtained the money in question from Mr Ddanze pretending that he was selling to him a piece of land at Lubowa in Wakiso district.
Aciro referred him to Chief Magistrate, Ms Lillian Bucyana, for a bail application.
When he reappeared on Thursday, Mubiru presented three sureties, Victoria Bukenya and Godfrey Ssebyala both business people dealing in mobile phones at Mutaasa Kafeero Plaza in Kampala and Andrew Kayonga 33, a city car dealer.
The sureties left behind photocopies of their LC.1 letters, identity cards and passports.
However, the state prosecutor, Peter Mugisha, asked for more time to verify Mubiru’s three securities are substantial before giving him bail.
According to police records, Mubiru was arrested earlier in Kitebi, Rubaga Municipality after he failed to pay Shs 200,000 to a mobile money agent.
The agent, Andrew Sekagyoozi, said after Mubiru ordering for a mobile money transaction to his wife Ms Mayanja and one Alex Katongole, he failed to pay the sum.
Early this month, Mubiru was reportedly arrested by police in Bunamwaya for having failed to pay a debt worth over Shs 320,000.
