SK Mbuga and his wife Vivienne are now under custody in Sweden and Uganda respectively over the Shs 23billion case
Weeks after being released from Al Awiir Central Prison in Dubai, socialite SK Mbuga was extradited to Denmark, but latest reports coming in indicate that he is being held in Kronoberg, Stockholm over the Shs23B that his wife Vivienne Chebet defrauded from her lover, Sten Heinsoo.
As Mbuga is in Sweden, his wife has spent two weeks in custody at Kira Police Station. Detectives have been hunting her for over a year, but that search ended on Valentine's Day when they caught up with her in Muyenga.
Her family has since petitioned the High Court in Kampala seeking its orders to have her taken to court, they add that she is a mother of two who has not seen her children and yet their dad is equally incarcerated in Sweden.
Vivienne's arrest follows a complaint from Sweden, where Sten Heinsoo, who thought was in love with her ended up using company money that was sent to Uganda for Vivienne to ship the gold that never was.
Some of that money was used to buy posh rides and a lavish wedding for the celebrity couple of Vivienne and SK Mbuga. Sten Heinsoo, 72, was sentenced to four years last December, he has since appealed that sentence.
It is not clear at this time if Vivienne will be extradited to Sweden, where the crime was committed as Sweden has no extradition agreement with Uganda.
Meanwhile, SK Mbuga maintains he is innocent and has nothing to do with the matter, according to a newspaper in Sweden.
"During the past year, Sulaiman Mbuga has been detained in Dubai in an unrelated case. Since his arrival in Stockholm, two interrogations have been held with him, says his defense lawyer Per Arnstedt."
"His attitude is that he has nothing at all to do with this. He has wanted to come here as soon as possible to sort out these errors, says Arnstedt."
SK Mbuga's posh rides that include a Ferrari, the first one in the country and a Rolls Royce were sold to raise the money that helped him settle the Dubai case.
