Press Release 

Nine people have been arrested in connection to the unauthorised concert that was held last night in Ddungu Resort, Munyonyo, Kampala Capital City. 
Those arrested include Nigerian artiste Stanley Omah Didia alias Omah Lay, artiste Temilade Openyi alias Tems, Muyiwa Awomiyi (Temilade's manager), 
Benjamin Kabura (organiser), Ivan Ddungu, the manager of the place where the concert was held, and Prim Kasana, the event manager, who contracted Omah Lay to sing.
Others are police officers L/AIP Fabiano Juma, No.51328 PC John Bosco Ocaba and No.67898 PC Paul Odongo. 

"All suspects are being held on offence of doing acts that are likely to cause the spread of infectious disease, which is Corona virus. 
It is also alleged that the suspects and others still at large held a concert in violation of the guidelines of the Ministry of Health. 

"It is alleged that the organizers of the concert first held lunch and dinner events, but later on at night they started inviting artistes to perform.
Preliminary investigations indicate that they connived with area police officers, who guarded the illegal event. 
The arrested officers and three others still at large are also being investigated for disobeying lawful orders. 

"All the suspects are detained at Katwe Police Station in Kampala as their files are being processed so that they can appear in court.
After the outbreak of Corona virus in the country, the Ministry of Health issued guidelines suspending concerts attended by revellers in order to stop the spread of the deadly virus.

"The guidelines still stand. 
We condemn the acts of some selfish individuals, who are bent on violating the directives on COVID-19 with purpose of making money while risking the lives of many Ugandans.
We appeal to members of the public to adhere to the Ministry of Health guidelines on the prevention of the spread of COVID-19.
SP Patrick Onyango
