Dr. Annette Kezaabu Kasimbazi, the Pornography Control Committee –PCC chairperson, says when they were alerted about the porn materials circulating on social media, they sought audience with Nangendo to establish whether she intentionally released the material or someone else did it.
Sulayina Nangendo alias Princess Becky Jjuuko,
a popular actress with the Ebonies has appeared before police detectives and
Pornography Control Committee over her leaked nudes.
The Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson,
Patrick Onyango, said Nangendo has recorded a statement and would be charged
with publishing pornography material under the Anti-pornography law.
//Cue in: “Yeah, we called her…
Cue out: …she’s remorseful.”//
Trouble for Nangendo started last
week after nude pictures circulated on social media. The pornography law
provides a maximum sentence of 10 years and or payment of 10 million Shillings upon conviction.
But Dr. Annette Kezaabu Kasimbazi, the Pornography
Control Committee –PCC chairperson, says when they were alerted about the porn
materials circulating on social media, they sought audience with Nangendo to
establish whether she intentionally released the material or someone else did
//Cue in: “When we got the nudes…
Cue out: …yet it is not.”//
According to Kezaabu, they don’t intend to
prefer charges against the artist since she is remorseful.
//Cue in: “Bwetwafuna ebifananyi binno…
Cue out: …okudda kumulamwa.”//
Kezaabu says they will instead try to
rehabilitate the actress, saying the committee doesn’t want to see women being objectified;
saying most of the leaked nudes are for women.
//Cue in: “We don’t want…
Cue out: …the spirit of the nation.”//
//Cue in: “She is an actress…
Cue out: …bwetuyamba ono omuwala.”//
Speaking to URN this afternoon, the remorseful
Nangendo admitted having taken the nude photos but was betrayed by her ex-lover
who she says is outside the country.
She explained that she felt embarrassed
seeing her naked photos circulate to the public through social media.
//Cue in: “My name is Nangendo…
Cue out: …it was not intentional.”//
//Cue in: “Njagala abantu bakitegele nti…
Cue out: …kansabe nti bantegeela.”//
Nangendo advises young girls to think before
they do anything. She regrets that this was done out of excitement and never
thought it would end up in public.
