Lwasa spends nights behind police bars following arrest
2022 is not treating showy tycoon Emmanuel Lwasa fairly so far as he jumps from the frying pan into the fire. Y’all remember that a fortnight back, his wife Angel Kwakunda dumped him and replaced him with another charming prince.
Angel, who had shared the same bed with Lwasa for about a year after their pompous introduction ceremony in 2021, was spotted locking lips with a new catch in a city nightspot in the wee hours, before they drove off to an unknown destination.
Angel’s act sent the loaded business mogul a shocking wave down his spine as he couldn’t believe it. He fled the country nursing a broken heart, only to return a week later.
However, as he was still pondering the next step, he landed into more trouble. This week on Monday, he was arrested by police over forgery of documents! He has reportedly spent two solid cold nights behind bars, lamenting.
Speaking during a presser, Kampala Metropolitan deputy police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire confirmed Lwasa’s arrest and further pointed out that the troubled business mogul, who loves them young and juicy, was nabbed over forging signatures and documents related to gold mining.
“Mr. Lwasa was arrested on April, 4, 2022 at 1600 hrs from his office at Najja Shopping Centre, Najjanankumbi for allegedly forging the signature of the acting Director Geological survey and mines (Ag. D/GSM) Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development Mrs Alaba Agnes and that of Ms Grace Lajwe Principal Chemist Directorate of Geological survey and mines (DGSM) in his fraudulent transactions using his two companies; Trans Equator Miners Ltd and Trade Pannel International Limited,” Owoyesigyire said.
Owoyesigyire further explained that this stemmed from several companies being investigated by the Police Minerals Protection Unit (PMPU) over forgery of the signature of Agnes Alaba and that many other suspects are yet to be arrested.
This is not the first time Lwasa is facing the wrath of Afande Ochola’s men in uniform. In January this year, he was arrested and released from police custody over almost similar charges.
