Woman activist Hon. Miria Matembe has called upon police to arrest music producer Daddy Andre as allegations of sexual assault continue to rock the music industry.
So far, three female artistes have accused the talented music producer and singer of sexual harrasment.
Nadia Rania, Jesca Pafra and Amber Christ came out and alleged that Daddy Andre sexually abused them.
Nadia Rania said Daddy Andre kept on frustrating her after she had paid for the video shoot in a effort to have her. She even shared screenshots of Daddy Andre asking her to come over to his place.
Amber Christ alleged that Daddy Andre had sex with her live in his studio, conned her 3m and later blocked her.
Jesca Pafra also narratedhow she survived Andre’s forceful sexual advances after she travelled from Kasese to Andre’s Studio in Najeera and the ‘Sikikukweka’ singer started caressing and squeezing her.
Now Hon. Matembe has urged all musicians who have been abused by the producer to report him to police.
“The girls need to report him to police so that he can be detained and arrested. Very many take advantage of women. This is unacceptable,” Matembe said.
Miria Matembe has been a strong proponent for and an advocate of women’s rights in Uganda. For over two decades beginning in 1989, she was a member of Uganda’s parliament.
She worked in the Ugandan government as minister for ethics and integrity from 1998 to 2003, after which time she became a member of the Pan-African Parliament representing Uganda.
