Struggling Socialite Kavuma Honest Faces Police Arrest Over USD48000 Unpaid Speke Apartments’ Bill

Struggling socialite Kavuma Honest is on the run after taking off with uncleared bills worth $48000

KAMPALA, UGANDA: Uganda Police has launched a manhunt for buoyant socialite Kavuma Honest aka Harsh Pappy for taking off without clearing a Shs 170 million (USD 48000) bill accumulated through accommodation, food and lavish spending at Speke Apartments Wampewo.

Kavuma, a promoter of Germany based team Bayern Sports club in Uganda and chairman of the Bayern Munich fan club East Africa is said to have booked a room at Speke Apartments in 2018 which he paid for the first two years but started defaulting for the past one year and later took off forcing management to report the case to police and is now being hunted.

According to information obtained by DailyExpress, a case under Ref No.75/19/10/2021 filed by Speke Apartments against Kavuma Honest has been opened up at Jinja Road Police Station to recover the USD48, 000 bill.

”We are going to teach him a lesson. This time he will get saved. We want him to know that when you acquire a service you must pay for it. He will cough the money he took off with…or else he will rot in jail,” a detective hunting for the flamboyant socialite told this website.

Sources close to the matter revealed that after tasting on the luxury life at the Apartments, just like most so-called socialites got excited and without fear or favor started ordering for all tribes of drinks and foods, slept in the swanky rooms, asked for world-class services and eventually took off without paying.

Putting the Speke Apartments’ saga aside, we’ve further learnt that jail is already open for Kavuma over another scandal involving his colleagues; Makai Cobra, Nathan Kimbuye and Walter Obera who are being investigated over credit cards and ATM scams.

In case you are wondering about the person we’re talking about, this is the guy who in 2017 was arrested and remanded to Luzira Murchison on charges of money laundering.

According to sources then, Kavuma was accused of fraud by Nigerian businessman Jay Florin Adedayo, Director of Citi commodities in Dubai. It’s believed that Kavuma signed a transfer document that later bounced after allegedly altering a credit confirmation document in 2016 of US$193m from Chase Bank.

After several pursuits by the furious Nigerian, Kavuma was put behind bars for several days until he was presented to the high court. Represented by Bowmans of A.F. Mpanga Advocates, Kavuma later got out under unclear circumstances.

That, however, wasn’t the end of his woes.Sources (very reliable sources by the way), revealed that after a short while, Kavuma’s accounts in several Ugandan banks were frozen, leaving him stranded and unsure of his next move.

This website has now established that since then, the guy has been struggling to keep up with his flashy lifestyle again.
