The group detained Katusabe at the car bond owned by Ssebuwufu, accusing her of failing to pay a debt of Shs 9 million which was the balance of Shs 17 million; the price for which she acquired a car – Toyota Premio registration number UAX 481H from Ssebuwufu.

Their bail has subsequently been cancelled and sent on remand to Luzira prison until Monday next when they will be returned to court for sentencing.
