Renowned comedian Maulana Kasozi, known for his role in the comedy duo Maulana and Reign, is on the spot over child neglect.
Nalugya Shubira Betty, the mother of Maulana’s three children, claims that the comedian has failed to fulfil his responsibilities as a father for the past nine months.
According to Nalugya, whenever Maulana Kasozi visits her home, he prioritizes engaging in sexual activities with her before providing a meagre amount of money, either Ugx 10 or 5K, for child care.
When she refused to engage in such affairs, Maulana Kasozi insisted on taking custody of the children, which she declined, stating that they were still young.
The matter was taken to the family court at Mwanga II, where a final decision was made. Maulana was ordered to pay Nalugya Ugx 15K daily for child care and contribute towards their rent. Initially, he fulfilled the rent obligation for three months, specifically in June, July, and August of last year, but has since stopped.
Nalugya is currently facing a challenging predicament as the landlord insists on her vacating the rental property due to his request for three months’ rent.
Unfortunately, she is unable to meet this financial obligation, especially with her children’s imminent return to school. She went on to disclose that at present, Maulana is evading capture, and the court has already authorized an arrest warrant.
During a phone interview with Bukedde TV, Maulana admitted to not fulfilling his duties as a father but maintained that he had requested to have custody of the children, which Nalugya refused.
This is not the first time Nalugya and Maulana’s issues have made headlines, as they previously had a falling out in 2022 but were later reconciled by Mama Fiina.
