Bobi Wine’s Kyarenga concert finally cleared


By Alex Balimwikungu

After a series of back and forth accusations and Police’s pronouncement that Bobi Wine’s Kyarenga concert had been cancelled until further notice, it is back on.
The concert, slated for 20th October at Namboole stadium has however been pushed to next month, November 9. This still pends Bobi Wine and his team meeting stringent laws set by the stadium management

The new contract between Bobi Wine and namboole stadium management

According to a contract seen by Kampala Sun on Thursday, the Kyarenga album launch will proceed as planned provided Bobi Wine and team fulfils three conditions i.e. clearance by the police, payment of full Sh32,000,000 by October 29, 2018, and not to step on the stadium’s turf during the concert.

“As you are aware, the stadium shall host a Uganda Cranes match on the 16th November. Accordingly, you are not allowed to access the turf/grass during your event. You will only use the seats/stands for your fans and the running track for the equipment setup,” the letter signed by Namboole’s MD partly read.

The contract was signed by Emma Promotionz’s Emma Serugo on behalf of Bobi Wine and Jamil Ssewanyana Mpagi, the MD Namboole Stadium.

Signed and sealed. A copy of the new contract

The hotel management insist that the cancellation from 20th Oct was as a result of lack of contract between organizers/ promoter and Namboole.

    your sights, out of our own minds
