According to the spokesperson of the directorate of Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Vincent Ssekate, Vivian was arrested on Friday from their home in Muyenga and is currently detained at Katwe police station.

He said they were contacted by Bowman, a law firm representing Einor Mattson AB Construction Company, a Swedish company claiming that Vivian and SK Mbuga diverted US $6 million that is about Shs23 billion.

It is believed that the said money is what the couple used on their luxurious wedding that was held in Kampala in 2016, with sources intimating that it is because the wedding took place shortly after Heinsoo made the last transfer of money.

Chebet was last arrested in Sweden, prosecuted and was temporarily released bail. She was banned from traveling outside the country however, fled and came back to Uganda.

Police working with Swedish prosecutors, the detainee is expected to be extradited back to Sweden to answer all the alleged charges that were brought against her.
