Police has arrested three people in connection to the unauthorised concert that was held last night at Ddungu Resort in Munyonyo, Kampala City.
Those arrested are Ivan Ddungu, the manager of the place where the concert was held, Omah Lay, the Nigerian musician who was the guest performer at the event and Prim Kasana, Events Manager, who contracted Omah Lay to sing.
Police is also looking for the area Officer in Charge of Police Station for failure to detect the criminal acts that took place in his area of jurisdiction.
It is alleged that the organizers of the show disguised that it as lunch and dinner event, but later on at night they started inviting artistes to perform.
The suspects are detained at Katwe Police Station and are being charged with doing acts that are likely to cause the spread of infectious disease, which is Coronavirus.
On the onset of the COVID19 pandemic, the president directed that music concerts should be stopped and the directives still stands.
Police has condemned the act of some selfish individuals, who are bent on violating the directives on CONVID-19 to make money and risks the lives of many Ugandans.
“We appeal to members of the public to adhere to the Ministry of Health guidelines on COVID-19 and follow all the SOPs,” SP Patrick Onyango PRO KMP.
