Just a day after being evicted by Mukesh Shukla on Wednesday morning, another court order has been issued to restore businessman, Boney Katatumba, as the rightful owner of Blacklines House.
According to Katatumba’s son Rugiirwa Katatumba, Katatumba is set to retake Mukesh Shukla’s Blacklines House.
“Our lawyers secured an ORDER from the PRINCIPAL JUDGE Dr. Bamwine reinstating Boney Katatumba’s possession into the building. So we are clearing with police today and getting back in,” said Rugiirwa on social media.
Rugiirwa further alleged that Mukesh Shukla bribed the police and the judges in order to get a fake court order that was used to evict them from their house.
“The Shumuks (Indians) bribed and came with another order by a deputy Registrar Irene Akankwasa and also bribed police and came in.”
The source of the fracas between the two renowned businessmen started in 2008 when Katatumba entered into a deal to lease his property; Black Lines House on Colville Street to Mukesh, a transaction that later went sour.
Katatumba had agreed to lease Katatumba suites located in the heart of the city for 99 years to Mukesh at cost of $5 million. He also gave Mukesh a list of creditors that he was supposed to pay with effect.
However, after some time, Mukesh approached Katatumba asking to withdraw the deal due to the economic meltdown that had hit the world saying he couldn’t manage to pay up as was expected.
