Despite spending six months in jail, Minister Amelia Kyambadde’s husband has been ordered to pay Shs1.1b

Wilson Kyambadde husband to Minister Amelia Kyambadde has served the sentence of six months in prison. However, freedom is still far from reality. On July 10, 2017, High Court executions division committed Kyambadde to prison after he failed to pay a debt of sh1.1b.

Khan offered to buy it and gave US$300,000 as payment.
