Police are considering treason charges against music Promoter Andrew Mukasa also known as Bajjo, who was arrested on Saturday.
Police Spokesman Fred Enanga told journalists in Kampala today that Bajjo’s treason charges stemmed from a video in which he was allegedly inciting people to cause an uprising against President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and his government. The video was uploaded on social media pages.
The arrest came moments after a press conference in which he announced a marathon organized to support Robert Kyagulanyi, the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament to raise money he has lost over a number of failed concerts and children who lost parents during the infamous Arua riots last year.
Mukasa, trading as Bajjo Events and his colleague Abby Musinguzi, also known as ABTEX productions, dragged the police to court last month for blocking Bobi Wine’s Kyarenga Extra Concerts. According to their records, up to 124 concerts featuring Kyagulanyi, have been canceled since 2017. Enanga says Bajjo is now detained at Special Investigations Division in Kireka.
