“For the past two weeks, I have been in Uganda following up on my case, which has stalled, yet the suspect was arrested a week ago,” Johnny said.

The American, who reported the case at Entebbe Police, said, Nduhukire has all along been having access to his computers and mobile phones, plus social media accounts, bragging and posting all photographs of himself while at the Police station.

More charges After ‘Don’ Nasser had secured a Police bond on charges levied against him by the American national, a woman came up with a similar charge against the Kampala socialite.

Kiweesi, the widow of the late Emmanuel Mayanja aka AK47, and mother of Mayanja’s fouryear-old twins, on Wednesday said she had dated Nduhukire for some months, after meeting him in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. “I then introduced him to a Russian lady, who I regarded as my aunt, only for that young man to start sending emails and creating a rapport with the Russian,” Kiweesi explained.

According to the complainant, Nduhukire fl eeced the Russian woman of $5m promising to deliver 95kg of gold.

“At fi rst this lady thought I had connived with my boyfriend to con her, which prompted me to seek letters of administration in a Dubai-based court, to come to Uganda and pursue a criminal and, if possible, open a civil case on behalf of the Dubai-based Russian lady,” intimated Kiweesi.
