Media Personality Justine Nameere is currently languishing in Luzira Prison for defrauding close to Shs55m and impersonation.
A former TV personality/producer at Vision Group and lawyer, Nameere reportedly failed to pay a Shs55m debt to businessman Emmanuel Muwonge.
The daughter to agriculture minister Vincent Bamulanzeki Ssempijja, was on Thursday remanded by execution and bailiff’s High Court registrar, Flavia Nabakooza.
Nameere sold to Muwonge a Mercedes Benz worth Shs55m yet she had placed it as security at Platinum Credits.
Muwonge demanded that Nameere refund his money and she accepted to pay the money in February this year.
Nabakooza directed prisons authorities to receive Nameere into the civil prison and keep her imprisoned for a period of six months or until she pays the debt.
Her husband, Raymond Kagimba Mugimba, 38, the head of sales and marketing at Buganda Broadcasting Services (BBS) Television was remanded on Friday for allegedly uttering an introduction letter for a loan, purportedly signed by Vision Group senior advertising manager Harriet Mpora, to Uganda Micro Foundation Limited.
