Top Muslim cleric Sheikh Suleiman Kakeeto of Amir Daulah Muslim group faces jail over Shs137.5m debt.

The High Court Commercial Division registrar, Lillian Buchyana has issued a court order directing the defendant to pay the said sum of money after failing to put in a defense in the case where he is accused of failing to implement a financial agreement reached upon with some city businessman and woman in 2009.

Court documents seen by this website indicate that Christopher Matovu, Sulaiman Kaweesa and Mastula Nagayi had given money to Kakeeto to purchase a Canter Mitsubishi 2009 model truck but he did not implement as promised.

Court documents further show that when the defendant failed to implement the agreement, the plaintiff reached an agreement with him to return their money in three installments, namely, Shs.50m before January 20, 2020, Shs.40m before February 25, 2020 and Shs.47.5m before March 10, 2020.

The plaintiff claims that Kakeeto’s action have caused them financial loss, inconvenience, and anguish. Before the directive by court, Allan Kakeeto, a court process server, attached to the Commercial Court, sworn an affidavit  on February 19, 2020, indicating that he went to Kakeeto’s home at Kabowa opposite 4D Motel and handed over the summons to a lady identified as Raham.

It should be noted that Kakeeto is still battling with a number of court cases at Buganda Road chief magistrate’s court related to getting money by false pretense.

Kabaka Mutebi’s Mother Drags City Lawyer To Nakalema’s State House Anti-corruption Unit For Grabbing Her Inheritance…

Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi’s mother has dragged city lawyer Philip Mukhembo to President Museveni and Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema’s State House Anti-Corruption Unity.

Mary Ssimbwa (80) widow to Prince David Alexander Ssimbwa, a young brother to late Sir Edward Mutesa, father to Kabaka Mutebi claims that city Mukhembo grabbed 350 acres of the family estate land at Nantabulirwa in Mukono district.

According to the petition filed at the State house Anti-Corruption Unit, the widow claims that Mukhembo fraudulently grabbed their land in 2014 when she hired him through his law firm of Wameli and Company Advocates to secure for them letters of administration and later land titles in the names of the estate administrators.

She says that according to the agreement they signed, Mukhembo was supposed to get 10% of the land as his legal fees but he decided to take the entire piece of land and even sold off part of it.

In 2018, High Court family division judge Percy Night Tuhaise issued an order directing Commissioner Land Registration, Principal land Registrar Mukono district to process land titles in the names of the administrators of the estate of the deceased.

Ssimbwa’s widow claims that before the issuing of the land titles in the names of the administrators, Mukhembo through his lawyers of Wameli and Company Advocates filed a suit against the administrators of the estate and the land registrar of titles for issuing a land title without considering his legal fees he put in the case.

Efforts to speak to lawyer Mukhembo were futile but one of his learned colleagues at Wameli and Company Advocates told this website that the allegations from Ssimbwa’s family are baseless since they offered legal services to them and they didn’t pay.

When we contacted, Anthony Wameli, Mukhembo’s lawyer told us that he was in the meeting and promised to comment on the matter later.
