In the last few days there been a circulated a story about a sexual assault or rape of the Queen Karma or Sheebah Kalungi. This happened during or after she performed at former Vice President Gilbert Bukenya aka Mahogany’s Birthday party.
After the party, the musician and vocal singer released a video on social media not dropping any names, but telling her story of what went down. Where she told about the sexual assault and alleged rape. Some has called it the “forced fingering” of her, nevertheless, any sort of sexual action without consent is wrong. That is just a mere fact and shouldn’t be any shadow of a doubt.
What has spiralled out since then is a heck of a lot. The Independent Editor and Government Spin-Doctor has defended himself at a rapid rate. Where he has talked to the Director of CID and been interrogated by his buddy and ally, Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba. That’s why something is up, while attacking her the victim, which she didn’t name the one who assaulted her or anything.
Sheebah just stated in her video that it was a man who “appears on television” and presents himself as a “Role Model”. Those words has seriously hit a nerve. As well, as the detail, that the person had Special Forces Command (SFC) Guards surrounding him and guarding him. Therefore, we know it is someone who has suction and who is a part of the inner-circle. That’s why the outbursts and texts from Mwenda seems like damage control.
All we know… is that Sheebah was violated and was sexually assaulted that night. That is all we know. We knew nothing about who did and whatnot. There are rumours and speculation. Nevertheless, Mwenda seems to be on the defensive and that’s his personally attacked by this. While not being really concerned or minding the victim, Sheebah. That is really saying something and it’s striking too.
It is just weird… that the prominent person, who appears on television and acts as a role model could be Mwenda. That could be plenty of persons in the Republic. Maybe there is a limit of the people who shows up on UBC, NTV and NBS Television who acts like that. Maybe it’s only Mwenda who hits the description, because there is few who is prominent and who acts like they are a role model. We don’t know why he has come out and done this.
However, it is very serious. Both the allegations and the acts of sexual assault. Sheebah should get her justice and there shouldn’t be mob-justice without any proof. Nevertheless, Mwenda is stirring the pot, he is throwing gasoline on the fire and cannot escape the heat. That is very evident…
What is very obvious is that we don’t know who is the culprit and who did the deed. However, Mwenda is muddying the water and making it less clear or able to make sense of it all. As he accuses her of slander, alleged victimhood and whatnot. When she is the victim of it all and only dared to speak out. That’s what obnoxious about Mwenda… and he should reconsider his motives and arguments, as his only making things worse. His not making things better… even if he thinks so in his mind. Because, the perception is dark and grim.
Sheebah deserves justice. The possible perpetrator should answer in a court of law. However, I doubt that will happen and someone well-connected did it. This is why she didn’t say his name. That is very obvious and should speak volumes of her.
Whatever Mwenda is up too…. I don’t know, but it’s doing himself a disservice. He should know that as a spin-doctor, but it seems like a lost art-form for him now. This is to personal and that’s why he cannot handle it rationally. Peace.
