Sheebah continues to snub Mwenda’s calls & Whats App messages as veteran journalist struggles to convince singer to name her rapists

Andrew Mwenda has called out singer Sheebah Karungi for what he refers to as cheap publicity stunt, dismissing her claim to have been assaulted as pure fiction and ‘sickening’.

In a wordy social media rant posted late this week, Mwenda distanced himself from Sheebah’s allegations going as far as saying he has never met or even talked to her in person.

“A local musician known as Sheeba Kalungi went on YouTube with a video. She claimed that some man who appears on television and presents himself as a role model raped her. She does not reveal the name of this man but claims this man has SFC guards and that the incident happened at an event where she performed. Yet she does not mention the event, the date, time and place of her rape,” he says.

“Sheeba claims, again with characteristic ambiguity, that this man violated her body to her disgust but she does not specify whether it was rape or indecent assault. But she claims he did so in the presence of her staff in her car and was protected by his guards from SFC. “

“I find it strange that a woman of her stature can be violated in such a humiliating and painful experience and instead of reporting the offender to the police, she takes the matter onto social media. To gain what? Sympathy? Why not seek justice through the police and the courts? In any case she could have pursued both: sympathy in the public sphere and justice in the courts of law,” he adds.

Besides just questioning Sheebah’s motives on social media, Mwenda did a media brief on a popular online Radio in which he revealed that he even tried to reach out to the singer for more clarification but all his efforts were futile

Mwenda claims that he messaged and called Sheebah several times but the nonsense singer turned him down.

” I tried calling Sheebah several times but she couldn’t pick. I went as far as sending messages on Whats App asking why he could let social media lynch an innocent man as she let a rapist walk around scot free” Mwenda wondered
