  1. Abraham was in a Dubai prison for 9 months for being a scammer, scamming gold, robbing companies, issuing false cheques and travelling on a fake passport before being deported back to Uganda. Just go on google and type in “Abraham Luzzi scam”
    Hes a criminal. ask him why he had to leave dubai or check with dubai police. Meanwhile he’s welcomed back in Uganda like a hero.
