Renown Ugandan socialite Suleiman Kabangala Mbuga a.k.a SK Mbuga has been released from Al Awiir Central Prison in Dubai and extradited to Denmark.
For over a year, Mbuga has been in prison in the UAE after being arrested following accusations of defrauding over $2.6m from a businessman in a gold scam.
It was reported that SK Mbuga’s release from the Dubai prison was brought into effect after the socialite paid off over Shs1.6b, part of the money belonging to businessmen, one from Dubai and another from Oman.
He was flown to Denmark on Thursday last week as confirmed by Uganda’s Ambassador to Denmark Zake Kibedi.
It was on Mbuga’s request that he was handed over to Denmark and not Sweden where he is wanted for fleecing over 53m Kronor together with his wife from her then boyfriend Sten Heinso.
It is not clear as yet whether Denmark will hand the Ugandan over to Sweden.
