Bad Black was at City Hall Court on Thursday looking-good for someone coming from jail.
A week back, Shanita Namuyimba aka Bad Black pleaded guilty after telling the court Magistrate, Juliet Hatanga that she was drunk at the time of knocking, confirming, that she was guilty.
Dressed in some outfit that was long enough not to attract other charges, Bad Black was sentenced to a fine of Shs5m or face a jail term of one year. Fearing that this could affect the period she was to spend in jail, she opted to pay the fine that will be used as compensation to the victims.
Meanwhile, her troubles are far from over. The ex-socialite will be back in court on Mar 07, 2014 for having defaulted on a loan of Shs80m that increased to Shs105 with interest. According to court documents, Bad Black borrowed 80m in October 2011 from Mpanga with a promise of paying back after one month.
She used her maroon BMWx6 as collateral, unfortunately, at the time she was required to pay back, her accounts had been frozen, the BMW attached by Uganda Revenue Authority (URA). As fate could have it, Bad Black was jailed in July 2012, released four months later to go for treatment.
It was only in November 2013 that she was extradited from Rwanda to continue serving her sentence. This has also allowed other cases to take off.
