Songstress Sheebah Karungi yesterday, Tuesday May 17, 2022 recorded a statement at the Uganda Police’s Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) on her reported sexual assault saga.

The “Nwakata Burungi” singer who has been mute ever since she broke the news on her sexual harassment by one of her clients she claimed to be a ‘role-model’ in Uganda, showed up before Tom Magambo, the Director of Uganda Police’s Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID).

According to close sources, Sheebah filed a case of ‘Indecent assault’ against the yet undisclosed person.

The self-proclaimed ‘Swag Mama’ made it clear that the person in question wasn’t journalist Andrew Mwenda.

Sheebah confirmed that instead saboteurs had been falsely passing wrong information to the public pointing to Andrew Mwenda and other government officials.

Sheebah’s thought to seek Police sparked last week by Andrew Mwenda who was being trolled on social media.

The Commander for Land Forces in the UPDF, Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, who is also Andrew Mwenda’s close friend assured maximum security to Sheebah in case she feared for her life as she advances seeking justice in this matter.

Sheebah’s bold move has highly been commended gender activists several women both in Uganda and around the world.
