Detained Kampala socialite Brian Kirumira alias Bryan White has paid the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party chairman for Eastern Uganda, Captain Mike Mukula $40,000 (about Shs148) as the two parties continue to negotiate how he will clear his debts.
Shortly after Kirumira’s arrest on allegations of obtaining goods by false pretence on Friday, his creditors including Captain Mukula stormed the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters in Kampala with debt claims.
A police source said Saturday that Mr Kirumira who is currently detained at Special Investigations Division in Kireka paid the money to Capt. Mukula and is likely to be released on police bond later in the evening as he continues to negotiate with other creditors including his land lord and one Yassah Matovu Seguya.
“Humility is a virtue!!!! I have resolved all outstanding issues with BRIAN WHITE-Kirumira as patriots and nationalists. Chapter CLOSED,” a beaming Mukula tweeted on Saturday alongside a photo of him posing with the socialite.
