The wife of detained socialite Sulaiman Kabangala Mbuga, commonly known as SK Mbuga, will be extradited to Sweden to answer charges of fraud should Swedish lawyers succeed in their extradition request.

Ms Angella Vivienne Chebet, who is wanted in Sweden over a case of defrauding 53m Krona (Shs20.6 b) from her Swedish boyfriend Sten Heinsoo, was arrested by Criminal Investigation Directorate (CID) detectives last Thursday.

The CID spokesperson, Mr Vincent Ssekatte, said lawyers from Sweden were expected to arrive in the country anytime to table their request to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Mr Ssekatte said detectives traced the account on which the money was wired from Sweden and realised it had been further distributed to four other accounts.

These include one held at Barclays Bank of Uganda Ltd in the name of Sky Cargo Net & Security Ltd with SK Mbuga as signatory, another at Barclays Bank Uganda Ltd in the name of Sky Cargo Net & Security Ltd, signatory SK Mbuga.

The third account is held at Barclays Bank Uganda Ltd in the name of Angella Vivienne Chebet as signatory and the fourth in United Bank of Africa in the name of Muhammad Mbabali.
