Ever since Friday last week, Anne Kansiime has been in the headlines after various websites and blogs reported that she was recently arrested in the United Kingdom at the Heathrow airport after she caught with 2kilogramms of cocaine.
This was first published by an unpopular blog called Metro-UK. But yesterday the same story was posted on the same site but about a Sierra Leonean musician named Emmerson Bockarie.
And this brings us to a conclusion that it is a hoax with the writers of the blog only looking at likes, shares and comments for the blog.
On Friday, Anne’s manager, Emma Kakai went to social media to clarify about the situation and described the news as a baseless rumour that is just intended at destroying the comedian’s public image.
“It is a pity that some online tabloids find it exciting to fabricate stories that tarnish the image of honest hardworking people. We kindly request the public to reject helping such tabloids grow their following. We would like to acknowledge all our ninjas who have shown genuine love and concern by inquiring from us what is going on.”
She said before adding that Kansiime is a role model to many across different age brackets, something that she doesn’t take for granted, and is highly committed to.
