Kawempe south MP Mubarak Munyagwa’s woes are far from over after risking to be re-arrested for failure to remit shs100m debt he owes businessman John Baptist Maali over a botched land transaction.
On Wednesday, Kampala High Court Judge Flavia Anglin Senoga issued an arrest warrant against the legislator for failure to remit shs20m on Tuesday as he was ordered.
The warrant was prompted by Maali’s lawyer Patrick Bugembe after Munyagwa failed to show up in court. This comes barely a fortnight after Munyagwa was released from jail where he had spent over two weeks after he signed an agreement with Maali to pay the debt in instalments until full settlement. He paid shs15m, part of which was contributed by former FDC party president Dr Kizza Besigye and remained a balance of over shs85m.
Recently, Justice Senoga ordered Munyagwa to pay sh20m on May 2, sh30m on June 2 and sh35m on August 2, 2017 plus sh6m being interest and in default execution for the total sum shall issue.
