City socialite and businessman SK Mbuga has reportedly been arrested over a Shs23billion fraud case.

Kampala Post has learnt that Mbuga, known for his lavish lifestyle was arrested by interpol on Monday morning and airlifted to Sweden.

Mbuga and his wife Vivienne Chebet were indicted in Sweden over charges of obtaining Shs23b by false pretence about three years ago.

The story of the fraud first appeared in the Expressen, a Swedish newspaper which reported that Vivian Chebet lured a Swedish politician, Sten Heinsoo with false promises of love and gold which resulted into the fraudulent transfer of 53million kronor (Shs23billion) to her accounts.

The woman would go ahead to organise a lavish wedding with SK Mbuga on top of splashing cash on expensive luxury cars.
