The High Court in Kampala has issued an arrest warrant to State minister for tourism Godfrey Kiwanda Suubi after failing to pay a debt of about Shs104.6 million to a businessman.
Kiwanda’s arrest warrant is dated March 19, 2019 and T/a New Buffalo Associates are the bailiffs chasing the minister to be them the cash.
Court argues that Kiwanda has declined to pay the plaintiff, Jain Rajnish Shs the money, a matter court says dates back to 2011.
This agreement was before the chief Magistrates Court of Mengo, Civil Suit No. 3454 of 2011.
Court says Kiwanda has not settled his April 4, 2012 commitment.
It is against the above background that Kiwanda is wanted.
“This serves to direct the responsible police officers to assist, witness and ensure that this execution is done in an orderly manner,” the arrest warrant signed by High Court registrar, Deo Nzeyimana reads in part.
