City socialite Shanita Namuyimba alias Bad Black has told police detectives that she was paid to to defend Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine and abuse President Yoweri Museveni. “I have since realized my mistakes and I won't do it again," she confessed.
Bad Black was quizzed by the Criminal Investigations Department officers over a video in which she allegedly abused and defamed President Yoweri Museveni.
The socialite who was in the company of her lawyer Julius Galisonga was quizzed atCID headquarters in Kibuli for over five hours. But even before entering the room, a shaken Bad Black confessed to having been paid to do the dirty work.
She was questioned by two detectives about the video posted on her social media pages in August 2018 during the time when Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine was in military custody on charges of treason.
Bad black in this video, while trying to explain that there is no way Bobi Wine could have stoned the President's vehicle, vulgarly abuses the president, an offence she admits. She now faces charges of Offensive Communication and Criminal Libel contrary to provisions of the Computer Misuse Act and Penal Code Act respectively.
Vincent Ssekate, the Police Spokesperson in charge Criminal Investigations said Bad Black was summoned to record a statement and would later be on police bond as investigations into the matter continue.
It remains unclear, who paid the socialite to abuse the president.
