Speke Hotel speaks out on Don Zella theft, asks the US to investigate her

Sheila Nadege aka Don Zella

Speke Hotel has released evidence, supposedly pinning renowned City socialite Sheila Nadege also known as Don Zella, days after she ran to authorities claiming she had allegedly lost up to $90, 000 resulting from hotel management negligence.

Pointing out a case of proliferation of counterfeit American Currency, the hotel asserts, “As CCTV footage exists and can be availed- pointing to likely connivance between the Don Zella and the principal suspect,  in the CCTV footage, Police effected an arrest of the principal suspect in the footage” who was found with a whopping $60,000 counterfeits.

The statement from the hotel that quashes the socialite’s demand for payment of damages to a tune of $125,000 (about Shs 461 million) seems to tally with Police investigations thus far following the arrest of the principal suspect in Arua City.

“A resident at the hotel, Jeremy Adome, 36, is seen accessing room 107 with another person who is yet to be arrested. They are later seen leaving the room with items,” Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy Spokesperson ASP Luke Owoyesigire told the press January 06.

ASP Owoyesigire further said Police had recovered $60, 000 but Jeremy’s partners in crime were still on the run.

Speke hotel uses the January 05 letter in an attempt to compel the American embassy to probe possibilities of an international racketeering scheme dealing in counterfeit American and European currencies, involving Adome, Don Zella, and others.

“Suffice to note, as with such crimes, this has related crimes including seemingly staged a burglary and there have been apparent threats meted out,” the letter further reads.

The letter also urges the American embassy to pursue the matter as per America’s federal laws.

The hotel is said to have availed the American Embassy with CCTV footage showing Don Zella’s sister only identified as Shanita- associating with the now detained Adome, just a day before the purported burglary.

The hotel further claims that the trio has been spotted together during “material times” as it [hotel] aims to emphasize that the purported burglary was staged with intent to falsely extort money.
