Popular socialite Sheila Gashumba has had her day on social media today when she was cornered by tax man Ian Rumanyika the PRO of Uganda Revenue Authority. Trouble begun when out of the blue Sheila Gashumba felt the need to share with the twitter world how much she earns on a monthly basis. Sheila Gashumba tweeted that she was grateful that her father bought her a phone which had enabled her to make 20,000 USD as her monthly income .
The confession by the socialite only seemed to send sparks of fury in netizens. It was like Sheila had thrown a stone at some bees. The reactions were instant as many netizens were throwing shade on the young socialite.
It was in this ping pong with the netizens furious about how this little young 25 year old socialite could be earning all that money when URA public relations manager Ian Rumanyika informed the socialite that he hoped that she had been filing her tax returns as a responsible citizen would. The tax man seemed to end all tweeting on the subject matter by the socialite. Gashumba went silent after that.
We hope the tax man was only bluffing about conducting an investigation into her tax compliance. It might end in tears if the tax man puts his threat in practice.
