Iryn Namubiru and her manager Thadeus Mubiru with her PAM Awards Artiste of the year trophy

Following Iryn Namubiru's arrest nine days back in Japan for trying to smuggle drugs into the country, her manager, Thaddeus Mubiru has broken his silence. The manager is of the view that this whole thing is a set up.

One Alex Muyomba informed Thaddeus a few days back that Kim Ueno wanted some food from Uganda but the bag containing the food was only delivered at about 11:00am at his home in Rubaga. Thaddeus rushed with the bag to catch up with Iryn whom she found at Najjanakumbi at about 12:00pm driving through traffic to the airport for her 2:00pm flight to Japan.

Alex Muyomba who is a relative to Kim Ueno signed Namubiru's contract on behalf of Hakim Tumwesigye aka Kim Ueno. However, what shocked Thadeus was the issue of Kim not picking his calls or returning messages after it had turned out that Iryn had been arrested.

Iryn was arrested on May 03 but by May 06, Kim who was supposed to receive Iryn for her performance in Japan was already in Kampala. The next thing Thaddeus received was a text message from a third party that Kim wanted to talk to him. Friends and well wishers here have hired a private lawyer for her who has been in touch with her at Chiba Preferectural Police in Otusu Pronvince.

Iryn will know her fate on May 25, which is exactly 14 days from now as to whether she is to be set free or charged. Interpol Uganda and Interpol Japan are working hand in hand to see how best they can handle the case. Interpol Uganda's role is limited in terms of securing her release because Iryn is arrested for a crime they are supposed to be fighting.

Meanwhile, Hakim Tumwesigye aka Kim Ueno who is in Uganda will be giving his side of the story on Monday.

Now you know Kim Ueno and Alex Muyomba can't be trusted. It should be Kim and Alex in prison, not Iryn. Alex knew there were drugs in that package because he packed it before giving it to Iryn's manager, who gave it to Iryn. Kim knew there were drugs in the package because he told Alex what to give Iryn. I pray to God that the Japanese Interpol believe her when she says she didn't know it was drugs and release her. I never carry other people's packages unless I bought it because I don't want to be locked up abroad or anywhere for drug trafficking.

In the mighty name of Jesus, I pray that if you are guilty, May the almighty Gog have mercy on you and give you at least one more chance to do things right, but if you are innocent, may the Almighty God work through you and forgive that person who set you up with all your heart. Iryn, Plz call on to the name of Jesus, he is going to help you as we are also not quiet, we are praying for you so that y get out of that mess well

for Iryn to escape that, the Interpol should arrest the manager and the so called Kim so that they tell the truth. I think the lady didn't know what she was carrying. And this goes to the Bukedde newspaper, stop publishing hoax news, first u published that she was sentenced to 8yrs in prison, now that she has given orders about her properties, mwamusanzeewa mwe?
Posted by James on 12/05/2013 - 03:40 PM
Kim ueno and mubiru should be arrested because they knew what they packed and iryn literally to some extent knew what she was carrying.

We are all praying for u Irene.God will provide a way out.

I know Iryn was played coz she is smarter and well travelled to carry drugs to this country-death sentence. God please help my dear sister. But i got a question for the officicals at Entebbe Airport-don't they screen for drugs anymore???!!! Would be much easier for Iryn to be arrested on Motherland than in Japan. Damn it our country is such shame. Someone adapt me to another country am sick of UG, period.
Posted by Victoria on 13/05/2013 - 12:05 AM
Victoria, exactly. Btw,Entebbe airport doesn't screen for drugs, they screen for bombs and ask whether you brought clothes to sell in UG. And when you leave, at the entrance gate of entebbe airport they make those leaving the country to get out of their cars, walk to the checkpoint where they pat you from head to toe, and then you get back in the car. Checking people in that way doesn't prevent anything because a terrorist or a drug smuggler isn't going to carry anything that'll get him or her arrested in their pockets because they'll be arrested before they enter entebbe airport.

Kim ueno and mubiru should be arrested because they knew what they packed and iryn literally to some extent knew what she was carrying in that bag but plz try to help her.
Posted by carolton on 13/05/2013 - 04:26 AM
Kim is not God. His day is coming. We still suport you Iryn and somehow you are not dead. You will soon be back
Posted by Desire on 13/05/2013 - 07:44 AM
@Nana I live in the US but travel to UG for business. The reason why I said Entebbe airport security doesn't check for drugs is because if they did Iryn wouldn't have been able to get on the flight to Japan or been arrested on arrival in Japan. I believe Iryn was setup by Kim and Alex. But it would have been easier for Iryn to be arrested in Uganda, than in Japan because Japan give hard sentences or even death to those found with drugs even if they are innocent.
Posted by Kitufu on 13/05/2013 - 08:11 AM
That doesn't explain the Facebook chats tapped by Interpol Japan between iryn and the most wanted drug lord in Japan,2 mek it worse she always called this guy and even emailed him constantly.
Posted by mosz on 13/05/2013 - 11:51 AM
@ Mosz that was photoshoped stuff, you could also do it. whoever did it just wanted to give weight to the hoax news of being sentenced to 8 years. If you gave it a closer look, you will be able to notice a lot of missing links...!
Posted by Mukyas on 13/05/2013 - 12:24 PM
Lets not blame any one at this time, we must pray in all our religions such that she can be set free then she will blame her self or those who packed the bag for her. She knows on her heart what happened, the bag given to her bt'n Kampala and Entebbe those are words but the one responsible for that bag knows it on his/her heart and will remain guilty for that and will never be forgiven.

trust no one except the creator who knows every ones heart.

Posted by Rose mary on 18/05/2013 - 04:34 AM
Look Iyrn... you know what you have gotten your self into! People have have gotten killed and had less attention for less than what you have done! Like my dad always says, a thief's got only 40 days am sure your final 40 days are up! Embrace your fate am sure you will like it...
Posted by Ghost on 18/05/2013 - 06:03 PM
Everything looks just like a game to me, I believe if she meant it, she would have packed everything properly right from home. Jealousey people have played this game on her to tarnish her image and portray her as a criminal, but once se is set free, it will just be a blow to the haters faces iJN. we love her!
