Previous: Alaka, Black Clash Over Dime
At the moment the Mercedes Benz with personalized number plate 'Black Gal' was taken away by city businessman one Sekatawa, a dealer in real estate who is a son to late Abu Mayanja.
It is alleged that Black had financial problems and borrowed money worth Shs50m from Sekatawa. It is reported that she handed over the log book, the car card plus the car. That she failed to pay back the borrowed money and car was taken.
About BMW X6 and the Range Rover, it is reported that before her arrest, Black had borrowed Shs80m from Sekatawa alleging that her accounts had been frozen. She agreed to mortgage her BMWX6 vehicle registration number UAP 304 D as security.
She declined to hand over it's log book and the car card saying that it was with her mother. Sekatawa asked her to issue him a cheque in the names of Ismail Mpanga, which she did on cheque number 800038..
She handed him a Range Rover log book on the understanding that she would avail Sekatawa with the X6 log book later. Black was arrested before she handed over the logbook as she was driving the Range Rover which police impounded.
Police impounded it under the guise that they would use it as an evidence of stolen money and is up to now being parked at Kibuli CID headquarters. Black has since remained with no vehicle and when she was arrested; she called Sekatawa to continue with the facilitation as she had plans of settling the debts after.
It is reported that Sekatawa was not cooperative because the matter was very sensitive yet he is press shy. Black was desperate to get out of prison yet she needed the money. She feared taht she would not get a non-cash bail and decided to contact Abowe for money through Daudi Balondemu, advocate with WEB who was initially her lawyer asking him to lend her Shs60m.
"Because Alaka was being hunted by the Law Council over the dime he allegedly diddled from clients, he immediately ordered Abowe to release the money," said the source.
Sekatawa got information that Black had got money from another source after depositing the same log book. This did not go well with him. Attempts to meet Black were all in vain as she was in jail. He then waited until she came out of jail. Abowe, sensing that he would not recover his money, opted to go to commercial Court where he filed a case.
