Socialite SK Mbuga released from Swedish prison

Socialite Suleiman Kabangala Mbuga has reportedly been released from the Swedish prison after spending about one year and nine months behind bars.

This came after a prosecutor in Sweden during a court session on Friday (September 27, 2019), failed to provide enough evidence that the tycoon committed fraud related crimes.

Mr Mbuga was arrested by the International Police (Interpol) in February this year in Dubai in connection to fraud cases that involved 53m kroner (Shs23b) that his wife Vivian Birungi Mbuga allegedly swindled from a joint account she owned with her ex-boyfriend Sten Heisoo in Sweden.

He was first tried in a Dubai court before he was acquitted of the offences and handed to Swedish authorities after prosecution failed to adduce enough evidence that he actually committed the same crimes.

After the tycoon was acquitted, Sqoop had a phone call with him and had this to say: “Now that I am free, I am going to get to the bottom of the case since I was innocent.”

Mr Mbuga’s lawyer Mr Neo Barshtede revealed that his client is now demanding $20 million (Shs74 billion) from the Swedish government over his unlawful arrest. Mbuga didn’t reveal when he will be returning to Uganda, but noted that as soon as he steps foot on Entebbe Airport, he will start from where he stopped.
