Embattled former city socialite Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black’s joy of being freed from jail has this Friday been short-lived after she failed to raise Shs100m bail cash she was offered by the appellate court, and was returned to Luzira Prison.
It was money that landed Black in trouble and it was the same to bail her out, but she was not lucky enough to raise the colossal sum of money granted as a pre-condition by the Court of Appeal to get her temporary freedom.
Justice Stella Arach Amoko of the Court of Appeal had asked her to deposit Shs100m cash as a pre-condition to be released to access medical attention for her breasts.
“Dr. Joseph Andama (Luzira Medical Superintendent) testified against the medical report that when he squeezed the applicant’s (Black’) nipples, they discharge milk-like substance accompanied by blood. Though his report did not mention whether she can be treated in Mulago Hospital, I am satisfied that the applicant’s
condition amounts to grave illness. She shall therefore be released on bail pending her appeal on the following terms,” Justice Amoko noted
in her ruling read by the court’s Registrar and Judiciary spokesperson, Erias Kisawuzi today.
However, Black’s lawyer and relatives could not raise the money. Speaking to Red Pepper in a telephone interview Friday evening, Kisawuzi confirmed that Black has been returned to Luzira Prison because she failed to raise the bail cash.
“I have left office and I am the one supposed to sign on her bail papers. By the time I left office, she had not raised the money and therefore warders had to return her to Luriza Prison. When she raises the bail cash, she can return to court and deposit it to get her temporary freedom,” said Kisawuzi.
