As several across the world welcomed the new year in style, Leila Kayondo started hers on a rather sad note after she was beaten to the pulp by her ex-lover SK Mbuga.
The singer who is celebrating her birthday today shared the shocking news on her social media accounts,
I am calling for help from the IGP GEN. Kale kayihura. I have beaten and tortured by SK MBUGA so many times. But every time I go to report to the police station kabalagala, I don’t get helped out,’ She said.
Her horror has left some celebrities like Anne Kansiime in shock, wondering why she hasn’t gotten any help from the police.
‘By the time a public figure/celebrity like Leila Kayondo is beaten and battered and cannot get help from the police, we can only imagine how many other women are suffering silently because of police negligence, corruption and absolute and utter indifference.’
According to the Relaxing singer, SK Mbuga threatened to kill her. ‘He has threatened to kill me. My call for you General kale kayihura, is because SK MBUGA paid the police in that, every case I take to them, they give it a deaf ear.’
‘Please I call for help from every Ugandan who feels touched. My life is in danger. Am helpless. Justice must be brought on board. I can’t go ahead with this torture by Sk Mbuga.’
