City socialite, Honest Kavuma aka Champagne Papi is rotting in Luzira prison for defrauding city tycoon, Hamis Kiggundu billions of money
Kavuma connived with fake Bayern Munich officials and conned Hamis Kiggundu aka Ham $5,000,000 (Approximately Shs.18 Billion).
Kavuma, the proprietor of Bayern Arena located in Munyonyo near Speke Resort Hotel, approached Ham and lied to him that he has connections with Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich.
Ham who was planning to fly to Europe or Dubai to buy an artificial turf for Nakivubo stadium, halted his plans and gave Kavuma ears.
Having named his artificial turf, Bayern Arena, Ham believed in Kavuma. He promised to contact Bayern Munich on Ham’s behalf and flew in three ‘bafere’ white men who masqueraded as Bayern Munich officials.
During their stay in Uganda, they slept at 5star hotels and Kavuma even lied to Ham that they flew in with a private jet. All costs were met by Ham.
In November last year, Ham hosted ‘officials’ from Bayern Munich at his ‘White House’ in Kakungulu and took them to Mbale District where he bought a big chunk of land to construct a state of the art sports complex.
It is said that the Germans signed paper work that was supposed to pave way for the first payment in the multibillion deal that would see Ham construct a fully fledged sports complex, with a soccer academy.
After successfully conning Ham, Kavuma flew to Dubai and bought special construction materials and lavish furniture to complete his house in Munyonyo.
After waiting for the deal to materialise on vain, Ham Kiggundu sought the help of detectives at the Kibuli based CID in suspicion that he had been conned.
Kavuma was arrested, arraigned before court and sent to Luzira Prison last Monday.
This is not the first time, Kavuma Honest has been involved in fraud. In 2017, kavuma defrauded Nigerian businessman, Jay Florin Adebayo, Director of Citi Commodities $193m.
About 10 years ago, Kavuma who was staying in Finland conned money from colleagues and disappeared back to Uganda.
