Bryan White set to break cover after returning to Kampala

Bryan White will on Tuesday, April 16 speak to the media following his return to Kampala just a week ago.

Since he flew into Uganda on Tuesday, April 9, White hasn't had any public presence, apart from the short video he did with the YouTuber Kasuku who found him at his hotel.

In the video, Brian White, real name Brian Kirumira, promised that he would continue his charity work and also appeared not happy in ingrates. He didn't share many details and he avoided being on screen most of the time, at some point begging Kasuku to end the filming.

The controversial socialite-cum-philanthropist had been out of the country for three years. His return was first revealed by Frank Mwesigye on Twitter.

White was initially meant to return in 2023 but for some reason, he didn't. Bryan White, once a mainstay in Kampala’s show business, disappeared from the public around 2020 with a few photos dropping here and there showing that he was bedridden.

The flamboyant socialite, who once appeared in public doling out cash like it was free condoms, at around that time posted on Facebook asking for connections to meet President Yoweri Museveni so he could also be able to fly to neighbouring Kenya for treatment.

The lanky socialite even ran a charity named Bryan White Foundation under which he hired celebrities with nondescript jobs. Some of these include Weasel Manizo, Lady Mariam Tindatine, Alex Muhangi, King Micheal, and Jose Chameleone.

The late social commentator Olaxes Ismail, aka Jaja Kalevu Ichuli, in a TikTok video, had said that when Brian White returns, the only celebrity, of all he previously dealt with, only Micheal will be allowed to meet him.

"I'm very happy. When he told me that Ichuli... you and my man King Michael. You are the official spokesperson for the Bryan White Foundation. He told me he wants to meet the youths the moment he arrives. He has big plans, just as he had a giving heart. There has been a big vacuum in the socialite world ever since he left. For that reason, I am reminding you that Bryan White will return and meet his fans in Kololo... And everyone you ever saw on the old Podium, apart from King Michael, everyone will be investigated... We bought you cars, plots of land, but you didn't appreciate them," Ichuli said.

In his heydays, speculations swirled about his source of wealth, especially after pictures emerged of him posing with high-profile figures, including President Yoweri Museveni's brother Gen. Salim Saleh.

White himself was equivocal about his source of income, leaving room for fellow socialites like Bad Black to claim that he was a gunrunner.
