City socialite Judith Heard was on Tuesday afternoon arrested by Kampala Central Police over her leaked nud3s and indecent video that were leaked on social media back in May.
Police arrested Heard yesterday as she roamed Kampala streets. She had failed to respond to various police summons since last month when investigations on her leaked nudes started until yesterday when she got arrested and kept at Kampala Central Police (CPS).
“We had summoned her twice but she had adamantly refused to honour the summons. We decided to trace for her and we got her today. She has recorded a statement and we have her in our cells,” said a police officer (identity withheld).
Police said that Heard has become their third suspect to be arrested over leaked nudes since a General Enquiries File (GEF 28/2018) was opened in June on orders of the anti-pornography desk at the Ethics ministry.
Police revealed that Heard pleaded to be forgiven claiming that it was her boyfriend that took the pictures and that the nud3s are part of her work as a model but not for social media publication. She reportedly said she has pending modelling trips to Europe and thus needed to be set free. However, police was not convinced about this by press time.
Four other people, Lillian Rukundo a Uganda Christian University (UCU) student and blogger Ashburg Kato were earlier arrested and remanded while Jack Pemba and Don Zella were issued arrest warrants over the same allegations.
