After denying fathering a child with his housemaid for close to a month, singer Mathias Walukaga has finally accepted to take responsibility.
This was after the Minister of State for Youth and Children Affairs, Nakiwala Kiyingi, forced the singer to take a DNA test.
Initially, Walukaga had vowed not to take any DNA test, arguing that he had never been intimate with the maid. Instead, he said, it was one of his dancers who was once in a relationship with her.
But following the evacuation of the maid and the kid from Mityana to Naguru to be subjected to a DNA test on orders of Minister Nakiyingi, Walukaga agreed to take care of the kid, saying that even if he underwent a test, a plan was already in place to declare him as the father of the kid.
He named the kid after the head of his clan and told media that all he was waiting for is the mother and baby to return to Mityana then agree on the sum of money he will be giving her every month for their upkeep.
