Kyadondo East member of parliament Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu popularly known as Bobi Wine has said his planned concert at Namboole National Stadium will go on despite not being cleared by police.
Bobi Wine concert titled Kyerenga is scheduled for 20 October and is expected to pull huge crowds from across the country, however, the organisers are yet to obtain clearance letters from security as requested by the stadium management.
Info256 was made aware that that the musician turned politician and his team are yet to pay venue fees despite booking it last month.
Speaking to info256 on Wednesday, the Managing Director of Namboole Mr. Jamuli Ssewanyana confirmed that Bobi Wine expressed interest of using the stadium to host his music concert, however, “as a policy anyone who intends to use Namboole must present clearances from police and Kampala Capital City Authority ,” he said on phone.
Adding that he was unaware of any payment extended to the management of the stadium.
“I will have to check with my finance. But as far as I am concerned, the organiser has not paid,” he said.
While appearing on on Citizen TV, Bobi Wine brushed off earlier remarks saying, “ I have paid my money for the stadium.”
In a strongly worded term he emphasised that, he will have that show come October 20.
He also noted that police have been informed to provide security but added that all the talks are meant to demotivate his supporters.
Bobi Wine’s fans have vowed to fill Namboole to the brim that accommodates 50000 people.
With a section of the public particularly the opposition fanatics vowing to raid Namboole, Bobi Wine could bag over shs1.5 billion making it a record show of the time.
The last musician who staged a concert at Namboole was South African reggae singer Late Lucky Dube.
