Bobi Wine Music promoters petition parliament to warn the police before things get nasty

Yesterday, the speaker of the Ugandan Parliament, Rt Hon Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga met music promoters and events managers who petitioned Parliament over police action to suspend their music concerts which they say are a source of their livelihoods.

They claim to have been stopped from hosting concerts where Bobi Wine is scheduled to perform. The organisers decry loss of business and say that police imposes stringent requirements, which oftentimes are not within their grasp.

According to the Speaker of the Parliament, the Internal Affairs Minister will today make a statement to Parliament on the same issue and she shall table the matters the petitioners have raised for Parliament to seek a lasting solution.
