Reports coming in indicate that about 10 people, mostly bodaboda riders, are feared dead in accidents that happened while escorting singer Eddy Kenzo from Entebbe Airport!
Kenzo jetted into the country on Tuesday afternoon from the USA where he won a major award last Saturday.
The BET ward winner returned with his fans lining up along Entebbe Road to welcome their hero back. However, the standoff with police marred the fanfare.
Here is Eddy Kenzo’s full statement about the ugly incidence that engulfed his homecoming celebrations.
I am so grateful to whoever did all they could to come and pick me and celebrate with me, HOWEVER i have no idea why some police Officers behaved the way they did, i am here seated with too much frustration because of my innocent people who have been arrested, sprayed with teargas, others were knocked buy a police patrol that was trying to arrest me for an offense am unaware of. People were injured badly and rushed to hospital, we are aswell getting information that others died in this accident cause by the police.
