City socialite and philanthropist Brian Kirumira commonly known as Bryan White has refuted all allegations that he is involved in any illegal activities including illegal possession of firearms. The tycoon also revealed more about why he arrested Ashburg Katto, a blogger who he says has been defaming him for too long.

Over the weekend, social media was sent awash by images of Ashburg Katto in custody after he was arrested and detained at Katwe Police Station on orders of city socialite Bryan White. Ashburg is a famous Ugandan blogger known for his social media influence.

Ashburg was arrested after Bryan White reported a case at Katwe Police Station over a blogger who constantly aims at defaming and hurling insults at him. Among other issues Bryan White fronts as regards the arrest of Ashburg are that the blogger went to his personal property and other plots of land that he bought to find out if he was the real owner of the property. Bryan White says that is trespass and criminal.


Bryan says that Ashburg Katto also once alleged that the tycoon is living in disguise of the names Brian Kirumira but his real names being Brian Kigundu. Ashburg also alleged that the source of Bryan’s income is drugs dealings and that he also conned a Sudanese national to acquire his wealth. The tycoon claims this is something he cannot let go unpunished


Bryan White went ahead to clear the air that he did not do anything wrong by reporting the various cases at police against the blogger because he is not above the law and would as well want to sit and enjoy the peace like any other Ugandan. He says that he did not kidnap him but rather reported the case and let police do its job.


The CEO of Bryan White Foundation also indicated that the past rumors and allegations about him being in possession of firearms is not true. He distances himself from the allegations saying he wrote to the concerned security organs to avail him with security he now has. He says his bodyguard Okot Thomas is a constable attached to Katwe Police Station and the gun he possesses is legal and registered.


Ashburg Katto has been in jail since July 1st and his various fans on social media have since started the Free Ashburg Kato campaign with intentions to have their friend freed.
