It is literally raining problems for city businessman Emmanuel Lwasa Kawesi, who was recently dumped by his wife Angel Candy Kankunda before she eloped with a Toyboy identified as Abdul Kamulegeya.
Our Moles reveal that Lwasa, who a few days ago returned from to country from a trip in America, was on Monday arrested over allegations of forgery and uttering false documents.
Lwasa’s arrest was revealed by the Kampala Metropolitan deputy police spokesperson ASP Luke Owoyesigire, who said that he was arrested on Monday after forging signatures related to gold mining.
ASP Owoyesigire said that; “Lwasa was arrested on April 4, 2022, at 1600hrs from his office at Najja Shopping centre, Najjanankumbi for allegedly forging the signatures of the acting director, Geological Survey and Mines (Ag. D/GSM), Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development, Mrs. Alaba Agnes, and that of Ms. Grace Lajwe, Principal Chemist, Directorate of Geological Survey and Mines (DGSM) in his fraudulent transactions using his two companies; Trans Equator Miners Ltd. and Trade Pannell International Limited.”

Owoyesigire noted that Lwasa’s arrest resulted from an investigation currently being implemented by the Police Minerals Protection Unit (PMPU) in several companies, over the forgery of the signature of Alaba Agnes.
He noted that the investigation is covering and wide scope in the mining industry and that many other suspects are yet to be arrested.
He revealed however that Lwasa was released on police bond as investigations into his cases continue, after which he will be paraded before court if found culpable.
It should however be noted that this is not the first time for Lwasa to be arrested over forgery allegations and getting involved in dubious deals.
Reports indicate that Lwasa, who owns Tavern Kick Night Club in Masaka and a string of other investments around Kampala, was in January arrested over allegations of fraud and obtaining money by false pretense after he allegedly sold fake gold worth Shs200million to a Chinese national.
