Last Week, Jinja road based Rouge closed shop for the third time in a space of six months and red pepper online has exclusively learnt why the club has been operating in this state of quagmire.
Red Pepper Online understands that in March, Spear Abowe sold the then faded club to Internet fraud star Ronald Muramuzi at a price of 300 million shillings.
Muramuzi closed the club for two months as he revamped it with standard interior design and enhanced sound system.
On May 9, the club was reopened officially but the then owner Ronald Muramuzi did not witness the opening ceremony since he was netted on the very same day for cyber crime.
After a few weeks in operation, the club’s top management exchanged hands in a secret way and City tycoon Ken Ntaro became the owner of the Club.
Given the fact that Muramuzi owed Ken huge sums of money, he gave in the club as a way of clearing the debt.
Ken has been running the club with the assistance of Fidel Arinaitwe the ex operations manager of the Kabalagala based Club Venom.
When Muramuzi was released on bond early last month, the current management got disorganized as Muramuzi demanded that he needs his club back since he alleges that he was forced to sign the papers that gave Ken Ntaro sole ownership of the club.
Muramuzi’s allegations forced Ken to demand for his money and the former promised to it within a period of 3 months.
Red Pepper online has also learnt that Ken Ntaro deliberately refused to pay rent since he will no longer manage the club.
“I am waiting for Muramuzi to pay me my money and I give him his club. I cannot continue running the club the am going to give the owner soon.” Ken said
He further stressed that if Muramuzi doesn’t clear him in the next three month, he will take him to court for bleach of contract.
Ken Ntaro is a well known city tycoon who is an engineer by profession. His passion for car racing has earned him a big name around town.
