Police in Masaka is holding a car broker for reportedly defrauding a 51 million Shillings from a client. Umar Tamale, a renowned car broker reportedly took the money from a trader identified as Iddi Kazibwe, a resident of Masaka town under the guise of selling to him a FUSO truck.
Kazibwe says that he was linked to Tamale by one of his friend in 2016 and subsequently started paying him in instalments until he completed the agreed payment for the cost of the vehicle. But Tamale, a resident of Kitebi in Wakiso district cut off communication without meeting his side of the bargain.
Kazibwe says that all efforts to recover his money have failed to yield results over the last two years. However, his luck ran out when he was spotted at Kibuye Roundabout by Kazibwe, who alerted the police to arrest him.
