We Don’t Organise Concerts And Can’t Be That Cheap – Kayima Speaks Out On Cancelling Kyarenga Show

Published

on

Police publicist SSP Emilian Kayima has dismissed allegations that police has cancelled the Kyalenga concert that is scheduled to take place on the 20th of October.
Kayima has branded the rumours baseless and total nonsense.
In a phone chat with the Grapevine, Kayima made it clear that the rumours are being spread by an organised group whose mission is to taint the image of the police force. “We don’t organise concerts as police, I have seen the posts trending but we can’t be reduced to that level. These allegations are not true and are a total rubbish.” added Kayima.
Many people have come out to blame the police for trying to fight Kyadondo legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu after a post allegedly from Kayima.

The allegations stated that the police had been informed about the concert and had issued a provisional clearance pending consultations with sister agencies, they later found out that the concert had a hidden agenda of overthrowing the legitimate government of President Museveni.
The rumour further states that the police had information that the concert was going to be turned into a political rally which could command people to go to streets.
The allegations further claim that it had also come to police’s attention that such events could be used to insult the person of the President where degrading names like Bosco would be used to refer to the President as it was the case on the 28th of September 2018 in Masaka district during the Democratic party event and that Police had informed Hon. Kyagulanyi about their decision but as usual he defied their orders and went on to publicize the concert.
Thus they were issuing a warning to the public not to go to Namboole on the 20th as it would be illegal since Kyarenga concert had been cancelled until further notice.
Efforts to reach Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu concerning this information remained futile because his known phone numbers were off.
