Uganda Police Force has responded to singer Bobi Wine as to why his much anticipated ‘Kyarenga Concert’ will not be taking place at Mandela National Stadium also known as Nmaboole.
The singer turned politician was scheduled to hold his concert at the facility on the 20th of this month but was informed by Namboole Stadium management that he cannot be hosted there because there are two other pre-booked events taking place.
The Kyadondo East legislator a few days back revealed that it was the Uganda Police Force that is actually frustrating his efforts to stage his concert at the stadium.
Bobi Wine, in his statement claimed that this was the reason he cut short his Kenya trip.
However, yesterday evening police released a statement revealing why Bobi Wine’s concert will not take place at Namboole on this weekend as scheduled.
According to the letter addressed to Emma Serugo the Director Emma Promotions and Marketing Agency in charge of organizing the concert, Police cannot provide security as requested because Kyarenga concert is not among the events availed to them by Namboole management.
In the letter, it shows that Bobi Wine’s team requested Police for security on 2nd October 2018.
“The management of Mandela National Stadium-Namboole has availed us with a matrix of events they plan to host from September, 2018 to January, 2019 but does not include the above music show. You are therefore advised to call off the music show since you have not made any arrangements with the management of Mandela national stadium to host the show on 20th day of October, 2018,” reads the letter signed by Assuman Mugyenyi the Police Director in charge of Operations on behalf of the IGP.
Bobi Wine says he had reached an agreement with the stadium management on the date of the concert and also paid booking fees.
