He has however denied the charges claiming that the relatives to the girl simply want to extort money from him.
They first wanted me to cater for her educational needs something I declined and now they are fabricating stories, " the owner of the Ben Kiwanuka based Katumwa Sports Center said.
Katumwa started off by selling pancakes and it was proceeds from the pancakes that paid for his school dues, but he later dropped out of school. He continued with his business of selling vegetables and fish which he also dropped to concentrate on second hand sports shoes.
Speaking to BBC three years back, Katumwa revealed how he started off with $50 to create Katumwa Sports Centre which is now a house hold name in sports equipment employing over 100 staff.
Katumwa was able to go back to school and in 2012, he had completed his O-level at Makerere Day and Evening Centre for Adults (MAECA).
