Martha Kay’s Tormentor Arinaitwe Denied Bail, To Rot In Jail For Drugging, Robbing & Molesting Comedian

A city businessman who allegedly leaked city comedian Martha Kagimba aka Martha Kay’s nude photos is set to rot in jail after he was denied bail by the High Court.

Herbert Arinaitwe, who was arrested in 2019, had appeared at the High Court for his bail application although his prayer was rejected by Justice Isacc Muwata, on grounds that the move would jeopardise the investigations.

It is alleged that in 2019 Arinaitwe drugged Martha Kay and photographed her naked, before disappearing.

Martha Kay only regained her consciousness the next day, only to find herself lying naked in a bed at one of the city hotels.

A few days later, her nudes leaked and went viral on social media, prompting her to file a case of  cyber stalking against Arinaitwe.

However, later after his arrest, the police discovered that he had not only drugged Martha Kay and abused her but also stolen valuable items and money from her.

It is alleged that on April 11 2019 in Kampala, Arinaittwe robbed Kagimba of two mobile phones, a Samsung Galaxy and an iPhone, both valued at  Shs6m.

 He allegedly also stole her money purse containing an ATM card, driving permit, and Shs400,000.

It is alleged that before the robbery, Arinaitwe used the drug scopolamine (commonly known as devil’s breath) on Martha, which knocked out her consciousness.

The drug is used to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by motion sickness but its overdose puts people into a zombie-like state, in which they lose both their memory and free will and can be convinced to empty their bank accounts, hand over the keys to their apartments and cars, or being sexually abused.

“Upon arrival, Arinaitwe showed the complainant (Kagimba) pictures of naked ladies on his phone and proposed that she sleeps with an unknown rich man for Shs10 million. Arinaitwe then offered her a soft drink and she began feeling dizzy. She walked to her car and lost consciousness”, reads the case summary.

Prosecution adds that Kagimba gained consciousness and found herself lying naked in a hotel along Entebbe Road and her property missing.

Arinaitwe was arrested on July 11 2019 by the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence – CMI, charged, and remanded to Luzira Upper Prison where he has since been.

He applied for bail in the High Court maintaining his innocence saying that the charges were framed against him claiming that Kagimba is the one who took the pictures herself.

Arinaitwe wants to be released on bail on grounds that he was committed to face trial in September 2019 but to date, his trial has never kicked off. 

However, State Attorney Timothy Amerit has opposed the bail application on grounds that once released, Arinaitwe will abscond from the trial.

The state also argues that there is no sufficient evidence to prove that Arinaitwe has a fixed place of abode in Bisheshe village, Lugusulu Sub County in Sembabule district and that the sureties have no clear addresses.
