Socialite Bryan White, real name Brian Kirumira, yesterday collapsed at his home as rape allegations against him continue to gain momentum.
Yesterday, the socialite was expected to record a statement but police was informed that he had suddenly fallen ill and lost his speech.
While police agreed to give him time to recover, the Parliamentary Committee on Human Rights insists he must appear to answer several rape accusations.
On Thursday morning, after hearing from Stella Nandawula (victim) who formerly worked at Brian White’s home in Munyonyo, Kampala while running the operations of Brian White Foundation, the committee decided to call the suspect to defend himself.
Mutanda appeared before MPs together with the mother and sister of Nandawula. Stella and Vivian accuse Kirumira of raping them.
These told theCommittee that Brian raped and forced them to abort.
Earlier alone, Innocent Nabaasa, the Reproductive Health and Rights Alliance Uganda Programs Officer asked Frank Tumwebaze, the Minister of Gender, Labour and Social Development to take up the matter.
Nabaasa said: “So, according to Brian White, it is okay to sexually abuse a woman that’s above 18? We need justice. Dear Minister Frank Tumwebaze, kindly pick interest in this case as the line minister for Gender. These women deserve justice.”
At least three girls have so far come out to accuse Bryan White of sexually abusing them.
Tumwebaze advised these to record statements with the Police for investigations to be carried on.
“Report or encourage the alleged victim to report the case to that helps real investigation to happen and then we can formally follow up. When alleged victims don’t report, it just only stops at social media lamentations only,” said Tumwebaze.
Bryan White’s lawyer confirmed his client was sick.
