Authorities in Entebbe municipality have closed Da Bar, the place where musician Moses Ssekibogo, also known as Mowzey Radio is alleged to have been beaten.
On January 23, the 34 year old musician was injured following a fight at the bar before being rushed to Case hospital in Kampala where he breathed his last on Thursday morning.
According to a letter from the Town Clerk for Entebbe, Dan Fred Lutaaya, the hangout has been closed with immediate effect following the incident that led to the death of the musician.
“Following the gruesome incident that has led to the death of one of our top musicians aka Mowzey Radio that happened at your bar, council within powers vested in it to regulate and control businesses within this area has closed your bar with immediate effect,” read the letter to the bar’s manager, also copied to the mayor and Divisional Police Commander among other authorities in Entebbe.
The Town Clerk also in the letter announced that all licences and permits for the bar have been withdrawn before warning of a heavy fine in case the owners fail to adhere to the new directions.
The letter by Entebbe Town Clerk has however not indicated the exact reason behind the closure of the bar since it has been open despite the fateful incident happened over a week ago.
Police has since arrested three people including Hassan Muwonge, George Egesa and Xavier Lukere, also employees of De Bar, the place from where the fallen singer was allegedly beaten to injuries that led to his death.
Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire said that they are still looking for one Thomas Wamala whom he said is the prime suspect in the murder of the singer.
Mowzey Radio will be laid to rest on Saturday at Kaga, Nakawuka, Wakiso district.
