Rwanda’s High Commissioner to Uganda Joseph Rutabana has confirmed that Sandra Teta and her two children arrived safely in Kigali.
This follows desperate attempts from her worried parents to locale her after stories of alleged battery from her live-in partner Douglas Mayanja, popularly known as Weasel.
Amb. Joseph Rutabana told The New Times that Teta and her children had travelled with her parents who had earlier gone to Kampala after photos surfaced on social media platforms showing a severely bruised face of Teta, with suggestions she had been battered.
“It’s true she travelled to Rwanda on Tuesday together with her parents and children,” the envoy said.
Teta and Weasel have been living together for the past three years and share two children. It emerged Weasel had assaulted her, although a social media post on Twitter suggested she had been attacked by goons.
Claims that Teta had been a victim of domestic violence gained traction after Daniella Atim, the US-based wife of Weasel’s brother and famous musician Jose Chameleon, supported them.
The anger among sections of the public were too much; when Weasel who was “wanted” by Police was announced as a headline act at the weekly Comedy Store there was an online uproar which prompted the organizers to dump him at the 11th hour.
