Reports reaching us from the UK reveal that renowned Ugandan London based promoter Johnson Mujungu, together with his wife Grace Ntolera-Mujungu, have reportedly been sent to jail after being found guilty of money laundering.
Maid stone Crown Court in the UK sentenced them after finding the two lovers guilty of money laundering.
Reports indicate that the couple after they received a payment of £120,000 illegally and transferred it into different accounts linked to them both. It is said that in August 2017, their fraud victim received a call that he needed to pay inheritance tax to a firm of solicitors linked to his late grandmother’s estate.
Snoops reveal that using street-smart tricks Mujungu and wife intercepted the email and a different account was provided, resulting in the victim paying them the money instead.
When the victim realized that the money had not been paid to the solicitors, he contacted the police and an investigation was launched.
