Golden Band singer Ronald Mayinja has come out to defend himself over allegations that he stole a journalist’s phone. He says the he is being framed.
Mayinja, through a Facebook posts, claimes that the accusations are aimed at framing him.
The singer and NRM supporter revealed that he made a mistake in a statement where he said that Bobi Wine is the next president.
The singer gave his defense after a journalist identified as Yudaya Nangozi from The Observer accused him of making off with her mobile phone after having a 2 -hour interview with him.
The “Akalulu” singer realized that the content he had uttered out in the recording would cause him trouble with the state so he requested the reporter to delete it completely.
When the reporter seemed slow to do what he had requested, he quickly rushed and locked her inside the fence of his home and raised false alarm that she had trespassed into his home.
Mayinja again twisted his statements and accused Yudaya of having taken nude photos of his children.
He then offered to buy Ms. Yudaya Nangozi a new mobile phone claiming that he had permanently destroyed the old one together with its SD card and SIM card.
A case of theft has since been filed at Salama Road Police Station.
After a 2 hour interview at his home in Munyonyo, musician Ronald Mayinja has made off with our reporter Yudaya Nangozi’s mobile phone.
Mayinja first demanded that the audio recording be deleted, saying it was going to land him in trouble with the state.
He took off and temporarily locked our reporter in his home, falsely claiming she’d trespassed into his home – never mind that he voluntarily agreed to the interview, directed our reporter into the home, sat and talked for 2 hours and 30 minutes.
He later changed his accusations, again falsely, claiming our reporter had taken photos of his naked children. He has since offered to buy our reporter a new mobile phone, saying he has permanently destroyed the old one together with its SD card and SIM card.
A case of phone theft SD:REF 29/7/1/2021 has been filed at Salama Road police station. Mayinja has been summoned to make a statement tomorrow at 10am. Case: Theft of phone.The Observer
