Musician posts nude photos of girlfriend after fallout

10 November 2014, 15:52 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Social media in Uganda is awash with nude pictures of a local popular musician, Desire Luzinda.

People in Kampala, especially idle men, are excited by the photos and are spending much of their time discussing them.

For over a week, the nude photos of Desire Luzinda have been circulating on WhatsApp and Facebook to the disappointment of the Minister of state for Ethics and Integrity, Father Simon Lokodo.

The photos were reportedly posted by former Luzinda's boyfriend, a Nigerian by the name Franklin Emuobor. He posted the photos after their relationship went sour, and they went viral.

When the photos first appeared, Father Lokodo threatened to arrest people who forward them to others, but that simply increased on the number of people clamoring for the photos.

While addressing a press conference over the weekend, Luzinda apologised over the photos.

She said: "I am sorry about my nude photos currently on social media. I am however not responsible for posting them.''

Religious leaders, elders and women activists in Uganda  have condemned the posting of the nude photos and called on police to arrest and prosecute Emuobor, who is however currently in Nigeria.

Police have promised to arrest the Nigerian and take him to court over the nude photos even if it requires working with Interpol to get him.

Ugandan police also want to know how Emuobor acquired a Ugandan passport. Information acquired by police on social media shows that Emuobor, who is also said to be a local singer in Nigeria, shows that he was born in Rutooma in western Uganda and holds a Ugandan passport, No. B1012076.

''We want to establish how the Nigerian acquired a Ugandan passport,'' Uganda police spokesman, Fred Enanga said.

James Baba, the state minister for internal affairs, said that investigations into how Emuobor obtained the passport were going on. Police have also started investigating some immigration officers for issuing passports to non-Ugandans.

Father Lokodo said, ''We have received calls from people asking us about the pictures. I am told many nude pictures were posted on social media. We find this criminal and against the anti-pornography law. It is unacceptable.”

Quoting Article 13 of the Anti- Pornography Act, Lokodo said: “A person shall not produce, traffic in, broadcast, procure, import, export, sell or abet any form of pornography.”

Legal experts in Uganda said that sharing of obscene publications is illegal in Uganda and it does not matter the purpose.

However, another city lawyer who preferred anonymity wondered how the law would be enforced in this case.

At first, police wanted to arrest Luzinda and charge her for circulating the nude photos but later changed their mind and instead decided to use her as a witness if her boyfriend is arrested and taken to court.
