Singer Ronald Mayinja is in hot soup after a case in which he is accused of theft of The Observer female journalist Yudaya Nangonzi’s mobile phone after locking her inside his Munyonyo home was transferred from Salama Road Police Station to Katwe Police Station.
Salama Road Police Station had summoned Mayinja to report and record a statement on January 08 but the singer refused to appear before officers.
Consequently, Katwe Police Station took over the case and summoned Mayinja to report on January 09.
Meanwhile, Mayinja has reached out to Nangonzi promising to buy her a new phone to replace the one he destroyed, and offering her money in compensation.
Nangonzi’s employer The Observer says Mayinja called the reporter asking her to ‘forget the past and just accept a new phone and money.”
The journalist and the weekly publication now hope police will issue a warrant of arrest for the singer if he fails to show up at Katwe Police Station.
