The Buganda Road Chief Magistrates Court has remanded Sheenah Ndamiya the Director of Kadodi 256 Ndamiya Safaris Limited on charges of electronic fraud of more than 326.9 million shillings.   

Ndamiya was on Tuesday arraigned before the Grade One Magistrate Winnie Nankya Jatiko. 

The Court heard that Ndamiya also known as Namara between January 2018 and February 25th, 2018, in Kampala City using deception and to secure unfair and unlawful gain, deliberately performed a fraudulent online transaction onto Pegasus Technology Limited's payment platform amounting to 326,905,575. 

She purported that the payment was for services rendered by Kadodo 256  Ndamiya Safari Limited to various Visa Card owners. 

She was also charged with receiving stolen property. The Prosecution alleges that the money was received via her account number in Stanbic Bank Uganda Limited.

The prosecution led by Allan Mucunguzi said that the investigations were complete and asked the Court to fix a hearing date.  She was remanded to Luzira Women's Prison until April 8th, 2024.

In 2020 Pegasus Technologies reported a case at Jinja Road police indicating that there was unauthorized access to its system.

MTN, Airtel, and Stanbic Bank later issued a joint statement acknowledging that their aggregator’s systems had been illegally accessed.

Later a Senior police detective at the Criminal Investigations Directorate –CID in Kibuli, told Uganda Radio Network –URN that hackers who illegally accessed Pegasus an aggregator of Airtel, MTN, Stanbic Bank, and Bank of Africa transferred the money allegedly more than 10 billion shillings to sim cards fraudulently registered in the name of a local company.

Many suspects have since been charged in relation to Pegasus Fraud.
