Iryn Namubiru is still in detention in Japan;efforts to save her are still futile .Her cousin Yvette Seguya has opened up to the media her arrest and asked her fans to pray for her to get out of trouble.
Seguaya says, though Namubiru went to Japan to perform at a show reportedly organized at Yotsukaido Cultural Hall in Tokyo, Japan,there was actually no show organized there.
“A guy called Kim, a munyankole in Japan also a well known mufere in Kampala who claims he imports cars, contacted the manager told him about a show he was planning in Japan. Truth is there was no show in Japan though they made the poster…When Iryn was about to travel Kim asked her to bring him some matooke en posho which Kim’s family delivered to Iryn …..Am very sure the manager knows Kim’s family in Uganda. We need answers because we have been trying to contact Kim but all in vain.” Seguya told Uganda’s local media today
She also refutes claims that her sister could engage in any illegal act-smuggling illegal drugs.
“For now we need prayers and for those who think Iryn is that kind of chick then u don’t know her she would die before she did anything illegal” she adds
Namubiru was arrested at Tokyo International Airport, moments after her arrival.Many Ugandans were eagerly waiting for the reported performance only to hear that she had been arrested .
The Japan Police said Namubiru arrested for traveling on a French passport .Other reports say, she was found with cocaine pellets mixed with groundnut seeds.
However ,her promoter , Balaam Barugahara says the crime could have been set up .
