THIS WEEK: Namboole calls off Kyarenga concert
Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The management of Mandela National Stadium at Namboole has asked Kyaddondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobiwine to choose another date for his hyped Kyarenga concert that was supposed to take place on Oct.20. They say the stadium has already been booked for other events on that day.
Jamil Ssewanyana Mpagi, the Managing Director of the stadium said the venue is booked for two other events – a wedding and a workshop by the Uganda Athletic Federation and asked the legislator to choose another date. Earlier, the Police had indicated that they had not yet issued clearance for the launch of the song that became a hit around the same time Bobiwine and colleague members of parliament were arrested after a fracas in Arua that involved an alleged attack of the presidential motorcade by supporters of then candidate and now MP for Arua Municipality Kasiano Wadri.
Bobiwine announced that he would hold a concert at Namboole as soon as he returned from the US where he had been for treatment of the injuries he sustained while in custody.
