Jerome Mugenyi, who was recently caught with another man’s wife must be smiling ear to ear following his release from jail where he has been for a few days after his arrest.
A man identified as Birungi Michael caught Jerome in his bedroom, tied and eventually handed him over to the police.
Birungi Michael AKA Taata Bella registered a case on the 20th-Dec-2020 of Criminal Trespass and Theft(UGX5Million) against Jerome at Nyamitanga Police Station – CRR 38/2020.

According to Irene, she filed for divorce in the courts of law months ago. She is no longer living with Michael as husband and wife and are just raising their two children. She also added that they have not been together for the last six months.
