KAMPALA – When one is released from prison, they always hold a resentful feeling. They usually do not want to hear or see anything associated with the prison as it would be a reminder of the conditions they had to endure while there.
The case however is not the same with singer Kasendwa Richard, popularly known by stage name Ziza Bafana, who from his experience when he was held up in the coolers in Kyotera District wants to fight bedbugs in prisons.
The ‘Pomini-Pomini’ singer in a latest interview says he is going to carry out charity works and fight bedbugs in prisons, something he considered to be a big factor affecting the area he was held in which he was also a victim of.
The “Tuli Majje” dancehall sensational singer spoke of carrying out charity in prison following the unpleasant experience he encountered while behind bars for violation of the Covid-19 guidelines.
Ziza Bafana says he used the few days he spent in prisons with his crew as an opportunity to clean the cells and kill several bedbugs and also emphasized hygiene among fellow inmates.
“When we were freed from prison, we ensured that we left jail clean and killed the bedbugs. In fact, we also promised to return to that prison to conduct charity work to clear every dirt in the prison,” the singer says.
Bafana added that their major aim of doing this is to see that whoever gets jailed returns while thinking positively.
The Magic Town Limited Entertainment boss who was since been released was arrested five days ago by the Kyotera Police after finishing the 14 days of quarantine at the Mutukula border.
According to Bafana, he was arrested for allegedly promoting the People Power movement in Tanzania
“Dear friends and family I take this opportunity to inform you that my team and I have been arrested over talking about people power and people who support Mr Kyagulanyi Sentamu,” he posted on his social media then.
The self-proclaimed king of reggae had performed in Tanzania at one of the concerts and upon his return to Uganda, he and his team were put under the mandatory 14-days quarantine.
