Pamella Kentaro, the Counter Terrorism police lady who has been accused of spying on Kyadondo East member of parliament Kygulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine by the public has come out and given her side of the story after her photos went viral on social media.
After being sighted on the same connecting flight with Bobi Wine yesterday at Jomo Kenyatta airport in Kenya, many people claimed she was spying on the musician cum politician and more of her pictures have since been circulated allover social media with many condemning her actions.
However, she came out and explained herself saying that she is a very good friend of Bobi Wine and that it was a coincidence that they both had to take the same flight.
She also added that Bobi was the one who even invited her to sit next to him on the flight.
“It’s quite absurd that a lot of negativity is being spread about me having been planted as a spy on Hon Kyagulanyi. Me and Bobi Wine have been friends from way back and he knows that I’m a police officer.” She said. “On Thursday I met him at JKIA. I was from Mombasa and him from America. I didn’t travel to the US as alleged. He was the first to see me at the cafeteria and asked me to join him at the table with his brother Dax. We chatted for close to two hours while waiting for our flight to Ebb. On the plane, he sat next to Hon Winnie Kizza and he asked that I sit on the other side of the aisle near him.” She wrote
The police has since released a statement backing her up and claiming she has even been providing security for Bobi Wine during his concerts.
“We have seen several social media posts alleging that our Officer ASP Kentaro Pamella spied on Kyadondo East MP Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi all the way from America to Uganda. We want to clarify as follows. 1. That the officer was nominated by the Judiciary to go for a course in Mombasa Kenya that was scheduled from 17th to 19th September 2018 and the return ticket was for 20th September 2018, the day that the honourable was also coming back. 2. The officer has been providing security to Hon. Kyagulanyi, when the honourable has events/shows at his One Love Beach Busabala, and they know each other.” Police wrote in a statement.
