City businessman Rajni Tailor was on Saturday arrested by police for allegedly issuing bounced cheques.
The former Buganda Kingdom Minister of State for Economic Planning and Economic Development’s luck hit a dead end after several Indian community members dragged him to police for failure to pay back hundreds of dollars which they have been lending to him.
Tailor who was arrested in Wobulenzi, Luwero district, after issuing cheques worth millions of shillings to people which however were rejected by his bankers.
The businessman was minister in the Mengo establishment before former president Idi Amin expelled him and other Asians from Uganda.
He fled to exile with other Asians although he returned several years later and reclaimed some of his family’s properties.
It is however said that he has since become so broke that he can barely sustain himself, something that has compelled him to start playing monkey tricks for survival, like issuing bad cheques.
