Kamwokya-based businessman Daniel Mugabi has been remanded to Luzira prison until July 15 for allegedly obtaining Shs 100 million by false pretence.

Mugabi appeared before the Buganda Road Chief Magistrate’s court on charges of uttering a false document and obtaining Shs 100 million Shs 100 million from Geir Hartmann between August 2022 and May 2023 in Kampala district.

Court heard that Mugabi, along with accomplices still at large, purportedly deceived Hartmann by falsely claiming to pursue a civil suit (number 674 of 2022) against Tracy Lunyoro. 

Mugabi allegedly knowingly and fraudulently issued a false document (a letter dated February 20, 2023) addressed to the High Court, referencing the same civil suit number, claiming it was received by the chief magistrate of Buganda Road court.

He was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Ronald Kayizzi on Monday and pleaded not guilty to the charges. Prosecutor Martin Nambafu informed the court that investigations were complete and requested witness summons to be issued for testimonies. 

Mugabi attempted to apply for bail but lacked a national identification card or passport, as required under the chief justice’s bail guidelines. 

Consequently, he was unable to proceed with his bail application. Chief Magistrate Kayizzi advised Mugabi to reclaim any money he may have given to others under the guise of influencing his bail release.
