Socialite Bryan Kirumira aka Bryan White has landed in deep trouble after the Ugandan parliament directed the police to arrest him, following allegations that he sexually abused girls who were working under his Bryan White Foundation.
The Parliamentary Committee on Human Rights issued directives to police on Thursday to ensure they effect Bryan White’s arrest, such that he can face charges of sexual exploitation and defilement.
According to our sources the Committee also wants the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Martins Okoth Ochola to arrest and prosecute the Officer in Charge of Kabalagala Police Station, over allegations of shielding Bryan White by refusing to arrest him when the victims reported their cases at the said police station.
In their report that investigated allegations against Bryan White of violation of human rights, the MPs said even to date, the gross misdeeds are continuing unattended.
“The police must arrest Bryan White such that he can face charges of sexual abuse and defilement which were reported by his victims,” a source at parliament told this website.
The source added that; “The Committee also wants the IGP Okoth Ochola to arrest the O.C of Kabagala police for refusing to follow up the matter and arresting Bryan White when his victims reported their cases.”
The source also revealed that the Committee tasked the police to investigate how Bryan White, who is a civilian, acquired bodyguards from the elite SFC, yet such a privilege is reserved for Very Important Persons, a category to which he doesn’t belong.
Trouble for Bryan White started in May last year, when three girls dragged him to parliament, accusing him of torture, sexual abuse, forced abortion, among others.
His accusers include; Stella Nandawula and Vivian Mutanda, who narrated the horrifying ordeals they suffered at different times when they were working for their former boss at his Bryan White Foundation.
Shortly after Nandawula and Mutanda’s confessions, another girl identified as Leticia Nabulime, came out and accused Bryan White of allegedly defiling, impregnating and forcing her to abort.
However, although the Committee severally called upon Bryan White to file his defence against the allegations, he never appeared or sent his lawyers to parliament to present his side of the story.
He is yet to issue an official statement about the new parliamentary directive for his arrest and our efforts to secure a comment about the matter from him were futile because he refused to answer our repeated calls.
