EXPOSED: How Police foiled Don Zella’s plan to rob herself and defame Speke Apartments

INVESTIGATION: On Tuesday Jan 5th, reports marred social media indicating how City socialite Sheila Don Zella, real name Sheila Nadege claimed to have been allegedly robbed at Speke Apartments while she was staying there during the festive celebrations.

However, our investigative drones have found that Don Zella has since been forced to take down her Facebook post in which she accused Speke Apartments of negligence, following an emergence of evidence punching holes into her allegations.

The struggling socialite, through her lawyers Semuyaba Iga &Co Advocates dragged the Wampeewo based Apartments to Court of Law, accusing them of negligence which caused her damages amounting to ShS46 million.

In the lawsuit, Zella stated that on 6th December, 2020, she rented two apartment rooms (R107 and R512) on Speke Apartments, but on Christmas day while she and her family members were away, a thief identified as Jeremiah Ojok who booked R110 broke into one of their room (R107) and stole her property worth millions.

The said thief allegedly stole eight passports (7 USA and 1 Ugandan passport) two laptops (HP ProBook and MacBook), a hard drive worth Shs11 million, Jewelry worth Shs55 million, four phones worth Shs18 million, two Kids tablets worth Shs2 million, Nikon D850 worth Shs14 million, cash of Shs332 million and Shs30.

And given this loss, Zella dragged Speke Apartments to courts, demanding a compensation of Shs461 million for damages caused.

However, in the footage making rounds on social media, Don Zella, her sister and the alleged thief  are seen heading to the former’s booked room 107 (where the alleged theft took place) a day before; which means if it’s true that her property was stolen, it was taken by her friends/family members.

The same footage also shows Don Zella heading to Ojok’s booked room number 110 on Christmas eve.

What People say:

According to some critics on social media, when one is to travel, they should have a limit of USD10,000 (about Shs37,000,000), but how did she manage to ‘smuggle’ over Shs 332 million into the country?

Others believe that if it’s true that the money was stolen, Zella should provide proof that she indeed earns that amount of money in the United States of America through proof of paid up taxes.

It is also said that Don Zella was not even registered as having booked into the Apartments, among other points of concern.

But before she could clarify on this, the socialite immediately took down the post…and hopefully she will come out to throw more light on what really happened.
