KAMPALA - The Land Protection Police Unit (LPPU) has recommended for criminal prosecution of a woman referring to herself as a princess.

The so-called Princess Faridah Naluwembe Namirembe Bwanga, together with another woman, allegedly conned a city businessman in a land deal.

The ‘princess’ and her colleague, identified as Hajati Hanifa Nassuuna, are accused of conning businessman Andrew Kawuki out of over sh300m in a fraudulent land sale.

A progressive report into the matter has been compiled by the Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Directorate (CIID).

The two women are facing criminal trespass and obtaining money by false pretense.

According to the CIID report, the police are trying to trace the suspects for their statements assisted by their respective lawyers.

The report states that on March 21, 2013 the LPPU summoned the said princess, but that she “failed or refused to comply”.

It is also stated that the LPPU commandant also wrote directing regional police commander, Lubowa Police Station, along Entebbe Road to compel the accused to report the CIID, but that she decided to instruct her lawyers, Tusasirwe & Company Advocates, contending that the matter was of civil nature rather than criminal.

Following the police report, the businessman involved sued her through a summary suit and represented by Kamba, Turinawe & Company Advocates.

Kawuki sued the said princess in a bid to recover a total of sh322m, which he allegedly paid to the two women for a chunk of land comprised in Kibuga Block 18 Plots 153 and 381 plus Plot 700.

The land in question is located at Nateete, in the western suburbs of Kampala City.

According to the police report, the conned man alleged that after the two women had received his money and as he demanded to have the process finalized with the land registry so that he could also pay the remaining part, he was instead shocked when the princess simply evicted him using armed personnel.

The police report also states that it was later discovered that the land belonged to Henry Hamilton Johnson Kaala as the registered proprietor.
