Several bank accounts in Kenya and South Africa had also been blocked but have now been freed from encumbrance after Justice Henry Peter Adonyo, yesterday, declared Meddie a free man.
Meddie and David Greenhalgh were Shanita Namuyimbwa's lovers. Shanita, better known as Bad Black was accused of embezzling USD4M from her lover, she was found guilty along with Meddie Ssentongo and both were sentenced.
Meddie did his 18-month sentence while Bad Black is yet to complete her four-year-sentence, by November end, she will be on the streets of Kampala. However, in the sentence, court was silent about the refund of funds prompting the UK based Electrical Engineer to attach Meddie's properties because it had been acquired with money that they (Meddie and Bad Black) 'stole' from him.
The case has lasted one year only to be ruled in favour of Meddie Ssentongo and the British businessman ordered to pay all the costs incurred in the case.
Initially, Bad Black said that she had no business dealings with Ssentongo, then later she turned out to say that out of the USD 36,000, she gave Meddie USD 30,000. Ssentongo maintained he had never received any money from Shanita or Daveshan, the company in which Bad Black was a shareholder with David. The case was dismissed with costs.
"It's true that everything is possible where ALLAH participates. Today after so many years struggling for my life and its belongings, victory has finally settled with me. Everyone on this planet,lovers and friends, allow me thank you all for the unending prayers delivered day in and day out. I come out in a loud voice and smile to say the court has ruled in my favor. Thank you Allah thank you all, " Meddie wrote.
In court, Bad Black and David Greenhalgh were seen whispering sweet nothings to each other but at the end of it all, Bad Black was gloomy as she boarded the bus back to Luzira prison.
