Tycoon Drake Lubega’s wife, known as Jalia Nagawa has asked that her husband to give her 5 of his Arcades as as a compensation for all the years they have been together.
Jalia says that they accumulated the wealth together therefore she deserves to have her share of the money or property. She gave Drake an option of either 5 Million Dollars or guve her five of his city arcades.
“I want my benefits, I want USD5m or five arcades. I want SD, Talanta, Jesco and others,” Jalia said, arguing that she worked so hard back then for Lubega’s riches today.
“All I want are my millions, I worked so hard for them. I don’t want the relationship anymore, I want us to officially separate, and divide our property. I worked for my well being, but look at me now,” Jalia added.
Jalia explained that a financially struggling Lubega started his business together with her. She says city businessman Wavamuno blessed them, and together with Drake, they started working and they prospered till now.
Jalia recently filed for divorce accusing Lubega of turning against her yet they have worked together to achieve the wealth they have.
“I cried because I have pain in my heart that I failed to have a child because the man would always kick me and I get miscarriages,” the now 56-year-old Nagawa, said.
Lubega’s response When contacted for a comment on the petition, he said that the matter was before court and that he had nothing much to say about it because the law does not allow him to do so.
“My mouth and hands are tied because the matter is in court. Let us wait for what will come out of court,” Lubega, who admitted that the issue had affected him, told New Vision on phone.
It should be noted that Lubega and his wife lived together for about 20 years where the Nagawa was actively involved through making regular trips abroad for business transactions.
