Socialite Shanita Namuyimbwa aka Bad Black is still at Police CID headquarters in Kibuli where she was summoned for interrogation on allegations of offensive communication and criminal libel.
On February 20, Director Criminal Investigations, Obwona Joseph, issued summons requiring the socialite to avail herself for investigations into the matter.
“You are, therefore, in pursuance of the provisions of Section 27A of the Police Act (as amended) required to report before acting Commissioner of Police [in charge of media department] at CID headquarters … without fail,” Obwona wrote.
Accompanied by her lawyer, Black arrived at the CID headquarters on Monday morning and according to the CID Spokesperson, Vincent Ssekate, the socialite is still at Kibuli where the interrogation is ongoing.
The summons did not reveal the identity of the person the offences are attributed to, but some sources claim, could be one of the senior officials in government.
But days after the arrest of Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu and other over 30 people including 3 legislators in August last year after allegedly stoning one of the cars of President Yoweri Museveni, the socialite posted a video on her Facebook account, protesting the move.
With BobiWine’s ‘we are fighting for freedom’ song playing in the background, Bad Black said they were tired of a certain government official whom she kept on showering with all sorts of insults.
Black who claimed being in Dubai then said “even if you arrest me from the airport, I don’t care after all you put a television set in Luzira prison, I will keep watching that,” she said.
She said security had to release the legislator without fail.
She also said the official had denied responsibility of many pregnancies with different girls.
She would later record a video and asked for forgiveness from the very government official, saying its poverty which had pushed her to insult him in the earlier clip.
“I ask for forgiveness from you (government official), I am a Ugandan not a foreigner and a Muganda woman. We at times mess because of poverty. Poverty can force you to support Bobi Wine,” she said.
She said despite her loving Bobi Wine, her preference is limited to seeing him in music and representing residents of Kyadondo East in Parliament, not as President.
She said she had been promised $100,000 by a person she objected to mention, to insult the government official in the said earlier video clip, only to be given $20,000.
