The United Arab Emirates has released Ugandan socialite Sulaiman Kabangala (SK) Mbuga from its prison and instead handed him over to Danish authorities.

Mbuga will be tried for the $2.6m (Shs9.5bn) fake gold deal.

The Danish police have already flown him from Dubai to Denmark.

Mbuga had just paid the businessmen in Dubai Shs1.6bn to settle his debt.

Uganda’s Ambassador to Denmark Zake Kibedi told Daily Monitor Mbuga was extradited last Thursday.

Authorities in Sweden had requested UAE government to hand over Mbuga for fleecing 53m Kronor (about Shs23bn) with his Swedish wife.

Angella Vivienne Chebet, 35, allegedly fleeced from a company account she jointly ran with her former boyfriend, Sten Heinsoo.

While Mbuga spent one year and seven days in Al Awiir Central Prison in Dubai, Vivienne returned to Uganda.

Mbuga was arrested on February 1 last year on allegations that he had conned a businessman in Dubai of a substantial amount of money in a gold deal.

While in prison, another businessman from Oman, Ali Ahmad Ahmad Bur Omar, accused Mbuga of issuing him a $250,000 cheque that later bounced.
