The Uganda Police Force spokesperson Fred Enanga has revealed how singer Sheebah Karungi managed to reveal the rapist that attempted to chew her beans forcefully and free of charge.
The statement from the Police says that Sheebah filed a formal complaint yesterday and it was put under the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (CID).
Further, the statement says that Sheebah revealed each and every detail of what transpired on that day and despite allegations accusing senior journalist Andrew Mwenda of being the alleged bean pecker, Sheebah said that he’s not the one.
Investigations have commenced into the matter to see that the culprit is apprehended and punished.
“The Directorate of Criminal Investigations has instituted inquiries into the alleged incident of indecent assault against, Sheeba Karungi, a popular music artist, after she formally made her complaint at CID headquarters today 17.05.2022.
During the interaction with the CID officers, Sheeba revealed the details and the individual who was involved and the related circumstances.
In her complaint she clearly mentions the suspect and refutes the ongoing speculation in sections of the media that it was Andrew Mwenda.
In view of the above, a team of Detectives has commenced investigations on the matter to ensure justice for the victim.
We do thank Sheeba for taking the courage to report the matter and assure the public that as Uganda Police we take matters of Gender Based Violence seriously.

A few days ago the singer alleged that a top official in the country assisted by his SFC guards attempted to rape her as she was taking a nap in her car. A furious Sheebah said that this man was assisted by his SFC guards.
Some people however refuted her allegations and questioned why she didn’t file a complaint at the Police but put the matter up for debate on social media.
Among these was Andrew Mwenda who was furious that Sheebah had kept quiet as innocent names including his were being labeled the culprits.
He made sure that the matter is picked up by the CID and even requested the Commander of the Land Forces first son Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba to give the Karma queen security so that she reports the culprit.
