Entebbe municipal council has ordered for the immediate closure of De Bar, a local hang-out spot where the fracas that led to the death of singer Mosese Sekibogo, commonly known as Mowzey Radio, happened.
According to a letter signed by Dan Fred Lutaaya on behalf of the town clerk Charles Magumba, De Bar’s operating licences has also been withdrawn.
“Following the gruesome incident of recent that has also led to the death of one of our top musicians a.k.a Mozey Radio that happened in your bar, council within the powers vested in it to regulate and control business within her area of jurisdiction has closed your bar with immediate effect,” reads the letter dated February 2, 2018.
The letter adds that any forceful operation will attract a fine of Shs1m.
Early this week, Mr George Egesa, the proprietor of De Bar and his friend Xavier Rukere were arrested and are still being detained at Entebbe main police station where a case file number SD REF 85/22/01/2018 was opened amidst investigations.
Radio died yesterday morning at Case Hospital in Kampala following head injuries that he sustained from a fight that took place at De Bar last week. Burial arrangements are still being made.
After the death, police swang into action arresting the supervisor of De Bar to help police in their investigations. This brings to three the total number of suspects in police custody.
