The Ani Yali Amanyi singer today shared photos of himself with his better half relaxing at a bridge and waterfront in Santa Monica, Los Angeles County on social media.

The new parents could not hide their love as they were seen so tight in each other’s arms.

Santa Monica is a popular tourist destination in California which has been several times named among the world’s most beautiful beach cities.

Embattled musician Desire Luzinda is considering securing a court order blocking media houses against publishing lurid content about her private life after it emerged Tuesday morning that a sex clip in which she is reportedly involved had leaked.

Luzinda’s close associates said they would not look on idly as her reputation is being destroyed by a jilted lover who last week released the music star’s private photos.

“This is unacceptable. You can’t keep someone on the edge threatening to release her sex videos, medications http://cthp.org/components/com_k2/views/itemlist/view.feed.php ” said a source who also promoted Luzinda’s music.

“I think we have reached a level where court action can’t be ruled out. We are consulting with friends and family members on the way forward but I think we will have to act firmly against this defamation.”

Luzinda has since described the leakage of her photos in which she is seen touching and exposing her private parts as a “breach of trust”.

Her Nigerian lover Franklin, http://couponsavingfamily.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-list-posts-endpoint.php says he was penalising Luzinda over her alleged “unfaithfulness.”

The mother of one is not known to be married but has since been associated with a string of men in Kampala.

ChimpLyf has seen a video in which Luzinda is thought to be performing private acts but could not fully establish its authenticity.

In the 6-minute film, a lady is seen having a good time with his lover in what appears to be a hotel room.

Luzinda’s known telephone lines remain off, making efforts to secure a comment from her futile.

Ugandans have since stood behind Luzinda, condemning Franklin’s betrayal.

Ugandans on social media said Luzinda should not be blamed for the leakage as she was “madly in love” with Franklin.

But conservatives contend Luzinda’s actions do not boost the status of “African women” and that had she avoided taking nude photos, the country would have been spared of this drama.

 Can Luzinda legal battle succeed?

Observers say while Luzinda has strong grounds on which to challenge the circulation of her private photos on social media and in the mainstream papers but doubt police’s ability to enforce such a court order especially on the private WhatsApp.

Police publicist, Fred Enanga, says “we will help to identify the person who leaked Luzinda’s photos because this contravenes our laws.”

Peter Magelah, a researcher and lawyer, says, “As we all know such offenses are rarely enforced, but you never know when someone gets caught up on the wrong side.”

He opines that, “sharing of nude photos or obscene publications is illegal in Uganda and it does not matter the purpose.”

The lawyer cites the Penal Code Section 166 which punishes “traffic and distribution of obscene materials by way of trade or for purposes of distribution (sharing on social media is distribution).”

Section 166(d) provides that a person who “advertises or makes known by any means with a view to assisting the circulation of, or traffic in, any such matters …” this is very broad and can affect any form of sharing and discussion of the matter.

The law provides that the “circulation of, or traffic in, any such matters or things, that a person is engaged in any of the acts referred to in this section, or advertises or makes known how, or from whom, any such matters or things can be procured either directly or indirectly; or publicly exhibits any indecent show or performance or any show or performance tending to corrupt morals, commits a misdemeanour and is liable to imprisonment for two years or to a fine of two thousand shillings.”

Magelah says another interesting section is 128 which deals with indecent assault.

“This can easily be used to cover those taking photos of the “V pose” mimicking Desire,” he argues.

The section provides that “any person who unlawfully and indecently assaults any woman or girl commits a felony and is liable to imprisonment for fourteen years, with or without corporal punishment”, adding, “Any person who, intending to insult the modesty of any woman or girl, utters any word, makes any sound or gesture or exhibits any object, intending that such word or sound shall be heard, or that such gesture or object shall be seen by such woman or girl, or intrudes upon the privacy of such woman or girl, commits a misdemeanour and is liable to imprisonment for one year.”
The National Resistance Movement has angrily described as “an exercise in futility” and “total blackmail” attempts by an Asian money-lender Patel Arving’s lawyers to block the forthcoming national delegates’ conference over a debt of shs5.4bn.

The money was obtained by former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi’s daughter, information pills http://clinicapetterson.com.br/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php Lenina Kemigisha Rukikaire to update the party register for its 2010 primaries ahead of the general elections in 2011 but NRM is said to have failed to pay.

Patel’s Lawyers Muwema Mugerwa and company Advocates have since threatened to use legal means to block the December 15 conference at Mandela National Stadium should the ruling party fall short of clearing the debt.

“For us we don’t know about that debt, case http://conceive.ca/wp-content/cache/wp-cache-4b50f4e1f5b01ad210781f3fc950e8bb.php ” said NRM Deputy Spokesperson, tadalafil http://crunchydomesticgoddess.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-posts-list-table.php Ofwono Opondo.

“There are legal and proper methods of obtaining credit. There must be a valid body to authorise such a transaction. Is NRM aware about that debt? Is the NRM treasurer aware? Is there a valid document where the second highest ranking party organ which is NEC agreed to raise money through borrowing at the alleged interest rates?” wondered Opondo in an interview with Chimpreports on Tuesday afternoon.

NRM officials represented by lawyer Geoffrey Kandeebe Ntambirweki and Patel are expected to appear at the Commercial Court today for mediation over the case.

Lenina, in a letter dated April 7, 2014 to President Museveni, says she borrowed Shs 440 million with his authorisation as party chairman at an interest rate of 15 percent per month and that this money was to be repaid in three months which didn’t happen.

She claimed the debt had risen to a staggering Shs3.4bn as of March 2014 including principal and interest. But Patel now says as of October, he demands shs5.4bn and interest of 26 percent per annum, damages and legal costs from NRM.

“…the plaintiff’s business and operations have suffered severe loss and damage due to the non or delayed payment to the extent that the plaintiff’s assets are facing foreclosure and or liquidation by creditors,” reads part of Patel’s submissions.

The latest development is interesting for political observers considering that it comes at a time of heated internal power struggle within NRM ahead of the 2016 presidential elections.

Mbabazi is faulted by some party members of using clandestine methods to undermine the president with the view of popularising his presidential ambitions, a charge the embattled Secretary General denies.

Mbabazi was recently pushed by the Central Executive Committee (CEC) to accept to take leave from work until late December when the delegates’ conference will have elected a new SG.

He was accused of insubordination, forming cliques, conspiring against the party chairman and refusing to popularise the Kyankwanzi resolution declaring Museveni as the party’s sole candidate in the 2016 presidential polls.

If NRM refuses to pay back, Lenina could be asked by court to prove that she acquired money on behalf of the party or personally face liabilities for the incurred debt.

It remains unclear if Lenina’s family can afford to raise shs5bn to settle the debt.

Opondo said NRM will not be intimidated by blackmail, saying it never at any one time agreed to secure a loan to update the party register.

The electronic register is currently locked in Mbabazi’s office at the party headquarters in Nakasero.  Mbabazi was quoted as saying he would release the register as soon as the party clears the debt.

But NRM officials have since agreed to form a new committee to compile a new register of party supporters ahead of the 2016 presidential elections.
