KAMPALA – Assistant Supritendant of Police Angella Kimera, has this afternoon been sent to Luzira Civil Prison for selling seven flats on Plot 72-74 William Street Kampala and failed to submit the money to the owner of the flats.
Ms Kimera made an obligation to pay the said money to Mr Abdallah Jaffar Hassan of Silver Street, Edmonton, London, the rightful owner of the seven flats, but failed and was consequently arrested by a court bailiff.
The Deputy registrar of the Executions Division of the High Court, Mr Deo Nzeyimana was left with no option but to commit her to prison.

She had also agreed to pay Mr Hassan an interest of 10 percent on the Shs2 billion from the date it fell due on February 24, 2014 till full payment and also pay his lawyer Shs120 million at the execution.
“In the event of default of any of the terms hereof, the vendor (Mr Hassan) shall have recourse to execution proceedings by way of arrest and committal to civil prison of the purchaser and this shall be without prejudice to the right of the vendor to recover whatever debt shall be due by way of attachment and outright sale of the purchaser’s (Kimera) property or that of her children,” reads part of the consent.
It is alleged that on April 2014 Mr Hassan entered into a sales agreement of land and developments being seven out of 12 flats on William Street specifically flat 2,3,4,5,7,10 and 12 at over Shs2 billion with ASP Kimera.
