Swift auctioneers and court bailiffs impounded a vehicle, Toyota Land Cruiser Prado belonging to Rwampara county Member of Parliament, Vincent Mujuni Kyamadidi over an unpaid debt of sh16m he owes a businessman.

Drama ensued on Tuesday when the bailiffs, assisted by police, raided Kyamadidi’s home in Kamukuzi, Mbarara to attach his vehicle, registration number UAQ 684A and found the wife and children who refused to open the garage.

But the auctioneers broke the garage’s wooden door and towed it to Mbarara police station.

Henry Twinomuhwezi, the deputy registrar, High court execution and bailiffs division at Kampala, issued a warrant of attachment of moveable property of Kyamadidi and have the same sold in execution to meet the civil suit costs of sh16.594, 050.

The move came after Kyamadidi lost in civil suit he filed at High Court Mengo court lodged against Andrew Tumusiime referred as judgment creditor and Moses Bagarukayo, the purchaser, challenging Mengo Magistrate court ruling and order of selling his (Kyamadidi) vehicle number UAQ 684A TX Prado.

Kyamadidi borrowed money from Andrew Tumusiime, a money lender in Kampala and tendered in the log book of vehicle registration number UAQ 684A, TX Prado but he failed pay the debt.

In another  case, Tumusiime, sued Kyamadidi in Mengo court and the chief magistrate's court adjudged that Kyamadidi pays Tumusiime a total sum of sh8, 4500,000 with the costs of the suit after  all parties consented to settle the matter.

The motor vehicle registration number UAQ 684A, TX Prado, was attached and sold to Moses Bagarukayo at sh14, 500,000 to satisfy Tumusiime and Bagarukayo,with the costs of the suit and execution.

Kyamadidi filed several suits both at the High court execution Division which were subsequently withdrawn and others at the chief magistrates’ court.

Joseph Yamurebire, the Auctioneer, told Newvision that both parties agreed to settle the matter and court ordered Kyamadidi to pay sh16.594, 050 without any interest.

Yamurebire added that Kyamadidi, agreed to pay an installment of sh8m on or before October 18, 2013, the remaining balance was to be paid in three months and be given his attached vehicle after signing the consent. However, he refused to pay.

“After he got the vehicle under consent from court to clear the money, he decided to keep quiet and hid the vehicle in Mbarara. We traced for the vehicle until we got information that it was hidden in his home in Mbarara,” He explained.

When Newvision called Kyamadidi on phone for a comment, he would not pick up.
