Former socialite Shanita Namuyimbwa, popularly known as Bad Black, who had a stint in Luzira Prisons after a glamorous life some years back, has returned with a bang.
Bad Black was seen recently driving a Mercedes Benz and rumour has it that she has an American boyfriend who bought it for her. She is spending much of her time at Sheraton Hotel, where she even spends the night.
Black addressed journalists at Sheraton, with her son Jonah, who has come to the limelight after a social media post from his mother, that has been termed as hodulopu (sic) – wardrobe.
She scoffed at those who thought she had no money, saying this time, she will spend her money responsibly. She says she does not want any more hangers-on because she wants to enjoy her money.
Bad Black proudly showed journalists the log book for her benz to confirm it is hers, and not a rental.
Bad Black came to the limelight in 2009 when she was moving from bar to bar or party to party, spending money. However, it later emerged that she had gotten money from her lover David Greenhalgh, who later took her to court and subsequently prison, over theft of the same money amounting to over sh11b.
Bad Black some years back tried to erase her past by adopting a new name, ‘Snail Baby’ and had vowed not to respond to anyone who would addresses her by her old name ‘Bad Black’ following all the trouble that came with it in the past. According her, the premonition associated with the nomenclature ‘Bad Black’ includes serving a four-year jail sentence.
‘It is 2017, a new year so I expect everything to be new that’s why I am adding ‘Snail Baby’ to my name,” she’s quoted to have said. On why she had adopted a new name, she said; “Just like a snail, slow but sure. Expect more from me this ear.”
In 2016, Bad Black who admitted to bleaching, said she regretted the actions and wanted to regain her dark skin color.
Black, however, has refused to reveal her new lover, saying he is still new and does not want to be put in the lime light. She says she is three-months pregnant and very soon will be going to the US, the home of the lover.
She even apologized for attacking the President, saying some people misled her and paid her money to do it. She says now anonymous people are calling her, claiming to be from security, trying to intimidate her, but she’s not afraid to fight for what she believes in.
