Socialite Shanitah Namuyimbwa popularly known as Bad Black has threatened to release a list of government big shots who are daily customers of prostitutes.
Bad Black made the threat today Wednesday 17th June 2020 saying if the Ministry of Health does not pay her Shs500M for the Covid 19 advert she released within 14 days, she will expose the big shots.
Bad Black herself a proclaimed sex worker was allegedly hired by the Ministry of Health to sensitize young girls against eloping with truck drivers from neighbouring countries.
In a video message supported by the ministry, unapologetic Bad Black is seen urging young girls and Ugandans at large along roads and at borders to stay away from the truck drivers during this COVID-19 pandemic, who are the source of new coronavirus infections in Uganda. She also urges them to follow the guidelines from the MoH and the president.
Now a row has erupted between the Ministry and Bad Black over her payment. Whereas Bad Black alleges that there was a verbal contract between her and the Ministry to sensitize ladies of the night at Shs300M, the Ministry says she was only a volunteer who was promised Shs6M.
Speaking on Capital radio this morning, Bad Black said she has a big list of senior government officials who routinely use the services of prostitutes.
“One of them is the former Vice President, Prof. Gilbert Bukenya,” she said.
She also added that the Ministry must pay her because her name is Shanita and not Charity.
In early April Parliament boosted the Ministry’s vote on awareness by recommending that the budget for scaling up of awareness campaigns on COVID-19 prevention by the Ministry of ICT and National Guidance, be reduced from Shs14.7 billion to Shs 6 billion; with the balance transferred to the Health Sector.
