City Socialite and ex-convict Shanita Namuyimbwa alias Bad Black has lost a sleek brand new car after a drinking spree at a local pub in Kololo, a Kampala city upscale area.  

Police said Namuyimbwa lost her newly acquired Toyota Prado, Registration number UAY 344X on Eid Day following a night-long drinking extravaganza at Bubbles Bar in Kololo.

The commandant of the police's Flying Squad, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Herbert Muhangi Friday said that Namuyimbwa had reported a case of theft of her car and had written a statement to that effect, pinning the bar manager in the offence.

Muhangi said the police were holding the bar manager, Peter Akola and was facing charges of theft of a car or conspiracy to steal a car as investigations into the alleged theft commenced.

According to Muhangi, Namuyimbwa spent the night at Bubbles Bar and when time came for her to leave, she demanded for her bill.

The bar attendant handed her a bill of shs467,000, which she was willing to clear but, according to her statement, her Visa card failed to open after trying it four times. She told the police that she had enough money on the card but she forgotten her password.

She pleaded with the management and she was later allowed to go after promising to clear the bill the next morning.

Muhangi said that Akola helped to lift Namyumbwa into her car since she was 'too tired' to walk on her own but she could not drive the car.

In his statement, Akola admitted that he helped Namuyimbwa into her car and asked one of the two girls in her company to drive the car but they declined, saying they had no driving skills.

He said Namuyimbwa also asked him to drive her but he could not since he was still on duty.

The police said that Namuyimbwa later hired a special taxi in the wee hours on Thursday and was driven home, leaving the car at the bar. She insists that the manager retained the car keys and her visa card as security for none payment.

She was however surprised to be told the next day that the car had been removed and it could not be traced.  

Namuyimbwa on Friday reported the matter to the Flying Squad that immediately arrested the manager.


Akola denied stealing the car, saying he left it parked outside the bar and went home after duty.

In 2012 Namuyimbwa was sentenced to a four-year jail sentence in Luzira Prisons for stealing USD4.4m (shs11bn) from her lover, David Greenhalgh.

She was late last year released after serving her term and appeared at a Pentecostal Church in Entebbe where she declared that she had gotten saved while in prison and turned to God.

She recently resorted to singing and has produced one song, 'Mud Guard'.
