Mr. Ebangat who says he had known Mozey Radio for 10 years told presiding Judge Jane Francis Abodo that on the fateful date, “Radio poured booze on some people before a one Ms. Pamela Musimire and another person only identified as Mr Ategeka intervened and took him out of the bar.”

He added that when Radio was taken out of the bar, Wamala grabbed him, pushed him down and took off into hiding in Kyengera- Wakiso District, until 4th/February/ 2018 when he handed himself into police hands upon hearing that Radio was dead.

The second witness was Musimire Pamela (37), a resident of Abaita Ababiri told High court that on 22/January/2019, the deceased (Mowzey Radio) called her and directed her to find him  at Debar. On reaching there, she found Troy, the bar owner, a one Hassan  Muwonge and other people she could not identify.

“Mowzey asked the bar owner to buy for him booze, but the bar owner told him that he had no money. He however ordered the waitress to bring a bottle of whisky, on bringing it, Mowzey didn’t drink it but instead poured it in glasses of other people, and poured the remaining booze on the owner of bar which angered him,” Pamela testified in court.

Pamela told Justice Abodo that the owner of the bar then asked her to take Mowzey out which she did, and it’s at that moment that Troy followed them and pulled Mowzey from Pamela and pushed him down and he took off.

The third witness was Mowzey’s mother Ms. Jane Kasubo who implored court to exercise justice in this case. The fourth witness was a friend to the late Musician, Mr. Hassan Muwonge 28, a resident of Entebbe Church road.

Washington testifying before court today

Mr. Muwonge told court that on that fateful day, Mowzey came with Producer Washington to De bar, Muwonge said that he saw Mowzey pouring booze on the bar owner which angered him. The bar owner told Pamela to take Mowzey out, while Hassan took the bar owner to the washrooms.

However, Hassan said that he didn’t see who beat up his friend.

However, when Troy’s Lawyer Mr. Leonard Kasibante cross-examined the witnesses, he tasked them to explain to court how they got to know Troy;  Washington told court that he knew Troy through Pamela, while Pamela testified that she had seen Troy at Debar although she didn’t know him until she was called to record a  statement at police.

The fourth witness Hassan Muwonge said he is the one who introduced Troy to Pamela while at Debar, a hangout in Entebbe.

Sipapa, Full Figure Are Using M7’s Money To Kill Us: Music Promotors Bajjo, Abitex Cry Out ….

Published

Abitex and Bajjo addressing journalists

Events promoters Andrew Mukasa alias Bajjo events and Abbey Musinguzi alias Abitex have pinned socialite Charles Olim alias Sipapa and Jennifer Nakaguubi alias Full Figure of using the millions of money given to them by president Yoweri Museveni to kill them.

Bajjo told journalist in Kampala that on Wednesday evening, he survived being killed by armed hooligans holding machetes at Makindye, a Kampala suburb.

“I have audio recordings of that fool Sipapa and Full Figure strategizing on how to finish our lives. I heard Full figure tipping Sipapa to tell his gangs to locate us and kill us using stones,” Bajjo said.

He revealed that when he received an audio from a friend, they decided to run away from Baba TV where they had been hosted for a talk show. He said that when they reached Makindye, a group of people attacked them with machetes and stoned his car. Abitex said that he received credible information from state house that both Sipapa and Full Figure told Museveni that they know Abitex and Bajjo and that they will help him silence them at all cost.

Abitex warned that the act of giving people free money will increase criminality in the country because people will start thinking that they don’t have to work but can always be given free money. Both promotors filed their complaints at Katwe police station. Full figure was not reached for comment since she was not picking our calls.

PROMOTORS LIKELY TO LOSS BILLIONS

Earlier, lawyer Erias Lukwago, who was  representing the two promoters pleaded with High Court judge Lydia Mugambe Ssali to save his clients from losing billions of money and jobs in the coming 2019 festival season. Lukwago submitted that the directive issued by the Inspector General of Police Martin Okoth Ochola stopping his clients from organizing musical concerts will deny them employment since their source of income are the music shows.

Lukwago told court that his clients lost over Shs200m when Ochola stopped their concerts at Busabala, Gulu Lira and other places yet they had already paid all the necessary requirements including security.

The presiding judge Ssali asked both applicants why they didn’t proceed with organizing concerts of other musicians because it seems the IGP only stopped them from organizing Bobi Wine’s concerts.

Lukwago with people power lawyer Shamim Malende tried to plead to Ssali to accommodate their matter before the Christmas festival because it’s the period when his clients work more.

This was after judge Ssali had told them that she was assigned to go to high court criminal division to handle very serious criminal cases.

However, after Lukwago’s plea, Justice Ssali changed her mind and asked Lukwago to take their file back to the registrar so that it can be allocated to another judge which Lukwago refused. Mugambe further advised the applicants to stop exaggerating their case. The judge ordered both parties to submit written submissions instead of oral as Lukwago was proposing. The matter was adjourned to 13 December.

Musician Edrisa Musuuza alias Eddy Kenzo has today defended himself against allegations that he joined National Resistance Movement (NRM) party after meeting the party chairman President Museveni.

While addressing the press today at Nsambya based Mestil hotel in Kampala, Kenzo said he was called by the president because of his musical achievements but not for politics reasons.

“I went to the State House because I was called by the president to discuss my personal issues specifically my career achievements and music not politics,” Kenzo said.

“I cannot discuss politics with Mr. Museveni because I am not an NRM member, I am a People power supporter and a fan of Bobi Wine since childhood so I cannot go against him,” Kenzo revealed.

When he was asked his reason for abandoning NRM after campaigning for them in the 2011 elections, he said, “I participated in the stamina pakalast campaigns in 2011 for Museveni but I was not paid, I was dumped after being used so that saga made me hate NRM party but I love my nation,” Kenzo revealed.

He said that in his talks with the president, he asked him to support his career and other upcoming Ghetto musicians who lack financial support to grow their talents.

“I humbly asked Museveni my payment that I worked for while campaigning for him in 2011. I also asked him to support me musically and also support the upcoming Ghetto artistes who cannot afford to finance their talents,” he said.

He further revealed that he will not campaign for Bobi Wine in 2021 elections since he is not a politicians.

“Let me assure you I will not campaign for any one not even Bobi Wine, I no longer trust people who are politicians because they just use others, I say it without fear that I will not campaign for Bobi Wine,” he said.

He denied being a politician and said that all the songs that many of his fans have tagged political such ‘Volongoto, Biwoobe’ are just advising his listeners but don’t carry any political symbolism.

When he was asked his next plan after Rema’s departure, the ‘Sitya Loss’ hitmaker said he is still confused on what to do.

“I cannot tell right now what to do since I am still confused and disappointed but with time I will get what to do and the public will be informed. But right now I need to organise my family, bring back my children and live a simple life,” he said.

He promised to attend Rema’s Kwanjjula ceremony if invited since she is still his friend. “I will attend Rema’s ceremony if given a chance because we have a child, that binds us together no matter what situation, we shall still be friends,” Kenzo said.

He concluded by thanking President Museveni for granting him a chance to meet him and also urged his fans to look at him as a musician not a politician.

Justice Abodo however advised any one who is dissatisfied with her decision to appeal within 14 days.

Wamala has been sent back to kigo prison to begin serving his sentence of 13years, three months and four days in prison because he has already served one year, eight months and 26 days in Kigo Prison which adds up to 14 years imprisonment.

Mowzey Radio’s relatives say they are going to Court of Appeal because someone  who took another’s life also  deserved life imprisonment.
