KAMPALA – Martha Kemigisha Kagimba commonly known as Martha Kay is a Ugandan internet comedienne well known for her Instagram and YouTube funny clips. Earlier this month, the young socialite shocked funs when her nudes were leaked and trended on all social media platforms.
This prompted Pornographic Control Committee (PCC) to summon her as pornography is a crime in the country.
In a meeting, the officers tasked with the responsibility of curbing the vice decided that Martha and the daughter to the Muslim cleric have to come and explain to the committee how their pics ended up in the public.
They have also asked the police to help cause their arrest land investigation.
Dr. Annette Kezaabu, the PCC Chairperson said “I just returned from abroad, but we’ve taken interest in Martha Kay’s case and that of supreme Mufti’s daughter, our committee will meet on Wednesday and thereafter, we will work with police to cause their arrest.”
“In these two cases we have no other suspects apart from the two girls themselves appearing in the photos naked, they will have to come before the committee and explain how their photos ended up in the public,” she added.
Patrick Onyango, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson confirmed that they now want Martha to appear before them and explain what exactly happened.
“We are patiently waiting for her to come and explain, chances are she is still disturbed after the incident, but we will be here waiting for her and another woman to come and explain,” Patrick Onyango confirmed.
Who is Martha Kay?
Real name Martha Kemigisha Kagimba, she is a Ugandan internet comedienne well known for her Instagram and YouTube funny clips.
The artiste doubles as a photographer and actress. She has featured in Ugandan movies like; Bed of Thorns, a Nabwiso Film that has other top guns like actress Sarah Kisawuzi and comedian Patrick Idringi Salvador among others.
Martha Kay, who is also known as the “Range Rover Gal” after her Range Rover video went viral added another year to her age on May 22. She graduated from Uganda Christian University in Mass Communication.
During the time of the boat accident that left over 30 dead last year, Martha happened to be by the waters, though on a different boat, many of her fans reached out to her to find out if she was well.
It should be remembered that Martha Kay is not the first female Ugandan to face the challenge. This joins the likes of Judith Heard, Anita Fabiola, Sanyu Robinah Mweruka, Zari and Desire Luzinda who had their clips or pics end up online.
According to a counselling psychologist, Loyce Nakibuka, the reason some of these pics ending up online is as a result of those who want to show off their manliness and sadly, it is the women who end up as victims because women bodies are more interesting than men, there is more to look at.
In the case of Anita Fabiola, she lost her TV job and Judith Heard says it affected her relationship.
“Judith Heard was arrested and her file was forwarded to the State Attorney after investigations were complete, but they wrote back asking us to retrieve the gadget that was used. Yes Judith Heard accepted that she had taken the photos herself, but the phones were stolen, that case is still pending,” The KMP Spokesperson confirmed further.
