Sencere alleges that Chameleone attacked her in the early hours of Saturday, June 9, at Casablanca Bar in Kololo, attempting to strangle her and causing injuries to her face, arms, and abdomen.

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire confirmed on Monday evening that an investigation is ongoing and that Chameleone will soon be required to provide a statement.

According to Owoyesigire, Sencere has already given her statement to the police and received medical documentation confirming her injuries. “We are now investigating all these allegations and will summon him (Chameleone) to make a statement,” Owoyesigire stated.

Sencere spoke to Pulse Uganda, expressing frustration over online backlash and media misrepresentation since she publicized her allegations. “I have seen a lot of bloggers posting uncoordinated reports, digging up posts from as far back as the Covid lockdown, which was fake news,” she said. “People are accusing me of chasing clout and trying to make a name off of him (Chameleone), but I do have proof.”
