Singer Iryn Namubiru finally confronts the man who is responsible for her troubles in Japan where she was arrested.
By Vision Reporters
Singer Iryn Namubiru finally confronted her worst nightmare so far - the man who is responsible for her troubles in Japan where she was arrested with drugs in May.
The showdown took place at Kampala central police station following the arrest of Kim Tumwesigye, the man who had contracted Iryn to perform in Japan last month before her arrest.
At around noon, Iryn arrived at the Police station in company of her fired manager, Thadeus Mubiru, but was blocked from interfering with Kim's interrogation which was in progress. She was led to another room where she was told to wait as Kim was being grilled.

Iryn told reporters that on Friday she approached IGP General Kale Kayihura and beseeched him to arrest Kim over drug trafficking charges in Japan. Iryn testified in Japan as a state witness before she was released.
When Kim was finally done with interrogations he was led to where Iryn was waiting. For an instant she seemed lost for words as anxious police officers looked on before she started spitting fire and accusing him of setting her up.
Iryn and Mubiru told police it was the first time they were setting eyes on him .
However, Kim's reaction was an unnerving devilish grin as he denied the allegations and stared in the journalists' cameras like he was gracing a celebrity event.
Struggling to control herself, Iryn continued her tirade but this time Kim was instructed by the Police not to say a word.
Iryn, eyes dilated and visibly angry, wagged her finger at Kim and accused him of having nearly ended her life by setting her up.
All the while Kim (left) maintained his mocking grin, driving the singer even angrier.
According to the Anti- Narcotics police commissioner, James Kyomukama, Kim's file will be forwarded to the director of public prosecution for counsel.
The case is recorded on file number GEF 322/13.
On the other hand, Kampala metropolitan police spokesperson Ibin Ssenkumbi said Kim could appear in court soon but also said he could be handed over to Interpol and taken to Japan to answer charges of drug trafficking.
Kim is also tasked to explain how singer Kid Fox who sometime back travelled to Japan alongside Catherine Kusaasira, Herman Ssewanyana and Karim Saava of Eagles production vanished without a trace.
Kim had contracted them to perform in Japan.
Meanwhile the singer has beefed up her personal security fearing for her life. Private security personnel could be seen around her as she made her way to the Police station.
