JINJA – Renowned Jinja city based musician commonly known by his stage name Top K, is in fresh trouble for using fake documents while recording a police statement.
Top K whose true identity is David Kakaire faces charges of abduction and aggravated defilement after he was – on Sunday – netted at Green Summer Lodge in Jinja City’s Southern division with a 13-year-old primary five pupil.
The minor’s father said Top K had been conducting music concerts within their area – in Kayunga district – training young girls to attain modern dancing skills but left with his daughter on Saturday without his consent – and only learnt about the defilement incident through friends.
Kiira Police Region Spokesperson, James Mubi revealed on Monday that while recording a statement, Top K had identified himself as Ronald Bamukisa.
Mubi however, noted that when police analysed the criminal data profiling system, his fingerprints matched those of a wanted robbery suspect registered under the name of David Kakaire.
Mubi said that this prompted detectives to direct the suspect to produce his national identity card but he claimed that he had misplaced it – and was planning to seek a replacement.
He revealed that when detectives mounted a search through the artist’s belongings – an original National Identity Card in the name of David Kakaire was discovered – marching the suspect in the custody.
In a fresh statement, the Bujulizi singer claimed that Ronald Bamukisa was a family identity- and he had been freely identifying himself with it in addition to his given name that appears on the national identity card.
