NEBBI – Jerry Okirwoth, a young Ugandan deejay was killed by people in Nebbi district for allegedly playing poor music.
Jerry 22 was reportedly killed by angry party people who accused him of failure to play their favourite songs.
Jerry Okirwoth, a senior three student at Parombo Secondary School who was working as a part-time DJ at one of the disco halls in Nebbi district breathed his last on Wednesday after an angry crowd pounced on him for “wasting their money” and time by playing them very boring music.
According to Nebbi Resident District Commissioner William Bob Labeja, they blamed the establishment’s management for failing to protect the budding DJ from the irate crowd.
“As the head of security in the district, I will no longer allow any disco operators to conduct their businesses in the sub-county and anybody who defies the directive will be prosecuted. All disco halls in all sub-counties must be closed because they are causing insecurity and redundancy among the youth,” he told the press.
