President Museveni has given sh30m to singer Mowzey Radio (Moses Nakintije Sekiboogo) to cater for his medical bills at the Case Hospital where he is presently admitted.
The news of the president’s generosity towards the music fraternity was revealed by events promoter Balaam Barugahara on Tuesday. It comes after city socialite Brian White gave sh25m to Radio’s mother Jane Kasuubo over the same.
“Thank you Mr President Museveni for the financial contribution of Sh30, 000,000 paid this evening to case medical centre to cater for part of Mozy Radio medical bill. We are proud to have you as a father of our country long live. Thank you for listening and acting to the request made to you up on the incidence. (Sic)” he wrote.
Mowzey Radio was recently involved in an altercation at the De Bar in Entebbe, and sustained grave injuries that saw him admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the upscale hospital in the leafy Nakasero area.
The singer has since shown signs of improvement. “Radio is off life support and can at least make some body movements to show that he can recognise the people around,” his mother was quoted as saying.
