Read full from the Observer
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
Complaint: Yudaya Nangozi
Suspect: Mayinja Ronald
The Observer demands the immediate return of our reporter’s mobile phone.
