MENGO– Organizers of Buganda end of year concert ‘Enkuuka’ have revealed that red colour will not be allowed inside the Lubiri on December 31. They say the colour has security issues as it identifies the Kyandondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu and his People Power.
In a press conference held on Thursday 27 at Bulange- Mengo, Moses Lubuulwa, one of the event organizers from Luba Events confirmed that despite the ongoing conflict between Police and Bobi Wine the singer will entertain the Kabaka and his people but red colour will not be allowed inside.
“We are not about politics, Bobi has been singing on this event for the past years, Bobi Wine is going to sing as a musician but not a politician we don’t expect people power colour inside the Lubiri.” He said
Lubuulwa said the people intending to attend the event will not be allowed to wear anything red in colour since the attire has issues with security.
“We are not going to allow red caps, ribbons, overalls and any piece of red cloth and these things will not be allowed to go beyond the gate during the security checkup.” He, therefore, requested people to avoid them.
He said the presence of Bobi Wine in the concert doesn’t imply revellers putting on red because it reflects something different.
“From the past years, there has been no unique colour amongst the people, so this time round we don’t want to see red as a unique colour, all colours are allowed but we don’t want that unique colour (red) because the event is not political.”
However, another organizer of the Enkuuka, Abbey Musinguzi, alias Abtex promotions expressed his concern saying that revellers should be allowed to wear any colour of their choice.
“Have those people stopping you from wearing red bought for you clothes? One should be allowed to come in any colour of their choice. Is politics barred from this country?” People should come in red, yellow, green name any colours,” Musinguzi told journalists at Bulange on Thursday.
