Ugandans online are having a field day on social media platform Twitter, after a one Eugene Kavuma a Producer and Sound Engineer at Black No Sugar, an online show that serves as an alternative media platform that allows young women to voice their concerns and opinions on matters affecting them.
Updates reaching us indicate that a video recording of the incident in which Mr Kavuma physically assaults a one Ms Winfred Apio, his legally wed wife but whom he is currently not involved with, was shared with the administrators of the show and they, rather unfortunately, chose to let ‘justice prevail’ for both parties instead of firing him on spot.
According to a media statement that the show released on their Twitter platform, they recognize the abuser as a valuable member of the team and have instituted a system to allow him answer to the accusations until they get to the bottom of it.
Twitter users who have consistently watched members of this show call out alleged rapists and rape ‘apologists’ are dumbstruck by the fact that they failed to practice what they’ve always preached and instead of firing the abuser, chose to ‘hear his side of the story.’
“If there’s video evidence that the guy was abusive, what are you waiting for? Also, by the time someone readies their camera it means that this person had been abusive in the past! Anyway what do I know?” Francis LK, a Twitter user, said of the matter.
There is also talk that Mr Kavuma is sexually involved with one of the show administrators and hosts, and there is even compelling proof that she is pregnant with his child which prompted them to refer to his legally wed wife as an “ex-partner” in their press statement.
