Ex-Matooke Republic staff Namarah weighs suicide ‘with KFM host Peterson’s baby’


Former Matooke Republic employee Irene M. Namarah is contemplating death with a three-month old pregnancy.

She says it belongs to KFM radio’s K-Drive presenter James Peterson.

Namarah currently works with Femme Forte Uganda, an organisation that empowers women in Uganda for inclusive growth through providing skills training, mentoring, sisterhood support, spiritual and financial support.

She hails from Fort Portal city in Kabarole district, Tooro region.


This is her message posted on her social media Friday:

“While death is still hoovering on my mind, I need to make a declaration. I feel like death is coming for me too. And soon. But I deserve this death. Perhaps, this is how I’m meant to die.

I’m pushed to have an abortion for a child I’ve carried for almost three months now. I have tried to keep this baby but all odds are stacked against me. I’m ready to die with it. So ready! I’m not afraid anymore. I’m ready.

Someone please tell James Peterson, KFM, that it could have been a beautiful, brilliant baby. He could have been proud of it.”

James Peterson who has been on radio for 20 years, is a KFM K-Drive presenter.

In January this year, Namarah, she raised dust on social media claiming a man raped her when she invited him at her house.

“You grabbed me and threw me on the bed…” Namarah wrote partly in a lengthy Facebook post narrating her ordeal.

The accusation sparked rage on social media as girls called out bosses who had allegedly raped them.
