Police Bans Processions, Politics at Kyarenga Concert

With just hours to the long awaited first music concert of singer and MP Robert Kyagulanyi following his torture ordeal and hospitalization, police has issued a series of guidelines that will be followed to secure and ensure sanity at the concert.

The concert, which was initially scheduled to take place at Namboole National Stadium, is taking place tomorrow Saturday at the One Love Beach Busabala which is owned by Mr Kyagulanyi.

Police on Friday issued a statement outlining conditions for the concert, among them a ban on any processions to and from the concert venue.

Police have also demanded full access to the venue and to take charge of the accreditation.

Political comments and messages during the show have also been banned according to the statement signed by the Kampala Metro Police spokesman Luke Owoyesigire.

“The purpose of the concert is to launch the music album and for entertainment only and not a political gathering,” the police spokesman said.

Among other guidelines, Police tasked the event organizers to ensure that there is “no use of drugs, open sex and any other act considered immoral or unacceptable by the culture and laws of the people of Uganda.”

The police also vowed to shut down the concert at any time it feels “that security measures in the place are not adequate,” or if any one of the set conditions is breached.
