A police woman, who claims local music star, Bebe Cool, assaulted her in August, has testified of his actions towards her at the Entebbe Magistrate's Court.
Bebe Cool, whose legal name is Moses Ssali, was arrested and jailed for assaulting Officer Monica Kabagenyi at Entebbe International Airport. He was charged with indecent assault and insulting the modesty of a woman.
Kabagenyi, who works with the Aviation Police Department, told Court today that her work requires her to screening people entering the airport premises and to monitor activities around the aerodrome. She said that on August 27th, while carrying out her duties at the VIP car park, she saw Bebe Cool seated in a security officer's chair. She said she requested him to vacate the chair several times, but he refused to obey her instructions.
Officer Kabagenyi said that at one point Bebe Cool sat up, brazenly touched her breast and called her his sweetheart. Disgusted, she told not to repeat his actions.
According to the police woman, Bebe Cool lost his cool and started to insult her. The singer shouted obscenities at her, told her she smells and that he has enough money to pay her salary. In front of a cheering crowd of his friends, Bebe Cool allegedly humiliated the police woman, saying he could force her to salute him.
Bebe Cool was forcefully led away by a group of police officers, but not before he threatened to beat up Officer Kabagenyi.
Other witnesses on the stand today included Detective Corporal Henry Rubarema and Corporal Moses Mayanja. Both police officers testified to seeing Bebe Cool verbally assault Kabagenyi.
The presiding magistrate, Esther Nakadama, adjourned the case to October 30th when the prosecution is expected to present more witnesses to build its case against Bebe Cool.
