Former Kampala socialite Shanita Namuyimbwa a.k.a Bad Black’s ex-lovers David Greenhalgh and Meddie Ssentongo are in court over the recovery of $3.6m. Ssentongo and Bad Black duped David of the money.
Black was convicted for embezzling US$3.9m from Daveshan Developments (U) Limited, a company she co-owned with her ex-lover, a British engineer, David Greenhalgh.
Her co-accused Meddie Ssentongo was sentenced to 18 months on two counts of conspiracy to defraud in 2012 and he served his sentence.
However, Greenhalgh dragged Ssentongo to commercial court to recover $3.6m. He claimed that Ssentongo got over $3m from Bad Black.
Greenhalgh wants him to pay back $3m to Daveshan Developments Company although when asked by Meddie’s lawyer, Paul Walukagga if his client ever dealt with him or Daveshan Developments he said never.
Greenhalgh was asked by court to state it clearly if he or Daveshan had ever made any financial deal with Meddie. He denied ever working with him or made any financial transaction.
Court was also told that Air services UK, a company David co-owns with his wife sent around $4millions to the account of Daveshan Developments.
Hearing of the case continues on May 29, 2014.
