    By Vision Reporter

    KENYA police yesterday questioned Michael Ezra for hours over allegedly issuing a cheque that was dishonoured . Sources in Nairobi said Ezra was interrogated at the Special Crimes Unit near Kenyatta Hospital.

    The Kampala businessman was reportedly quizzed for failure to pay for medical equipment which he bought from a doctor in Kenya. Dr. Wang said she was issued with a $20,400 dollar cheque, which the bank, however, rejected.

    Dr. Wang added that Ezra owed her $20,400. “He gave me the first cheque in May, but it did not have a signature. Then he gave me another one on September 30 which I banked. But when I checked today (Thursday) it had bounced,” Wang told New Vision.

    Issuing a bouncing cheque is a criminal offence in Kenya as it is in Uganda. She said Ezra could not be detained because he produced a diplomatic passport and promised to pay the money today.

    Ezra is the founder of Ezra Track Team Board, a Kampala-based sports philanthropic financing and talent search agency. He is known for his extraordinary donations towards sporting causes in Uganda.

    Ezra rose to fame when he claimed that he planned to buy Leeds United soccer team in the UK. It was also reported that he planned to buy an Airbus model A380 that would be available in 2010 at $260 million.

    mhhhhhhhhh!!!! I thought he was a reputable fellow but seems that isn't credible. he was getting a forced credit facility from the Dr. he should be watched very carefully by suppliers and whoever wants to deal with him, may his time for downturn has come.
