On Sunday 13th September 2016, one of Eastern Uganda’s best radio station NBS Radio organized a show at Kakindu stadium in Jinja and most of the listeners from Eastern parts of Uganda flourished the show in large numbers.
An event of partying with joy and happiness over a sudden turned into one of tears and misery after the Uganda Police which had headlined security that evening getting more man power from the Uganda People’s Defense Forces (UPDF)and other private security companies in Jinja town to harass and man-handle the innocent fans.
They combined and mysteriously beat up all party animals who were both inside and outside the stadium after losing their tickets yet they had not been stamped as a symbol that show that these individuals had legally paid for the entrance. Some fans were immediately arrested and others were forced to pay huge amounts of money to be released by these goons that had unclear identities as security officers. We will keep you posted.
