De Bar closed over Mowzey Radio death

Mowzey Radio died yesterday after succumbing to head injuries sustained following a bar brawl on January 22

Entebbe Municipal Council has closed De Bar, a popular hangout from which a bouncer reportedly beat up and injured musician Mowzey Radio who died yesterday at Case clinic.
 
Mowzey, also known as Moses Ssekibogo, reportedly sustained head injuries after an altercation on January 22. 

In a letter dated February 1 and addressed to the management of the hangout, Entebbe town clerk Dan Lutaya invokes "the power the municipality has in regulating business" to close the bar with immediate effect.

Mowzey was admitted at Case clinic in Kampala from where he was pronounced dead on Thursday morning. Details of the altercation remain scanty with some claiming that what started it all was Mowzey sprinkling whisky on patrons in the bar.

He was then reportedly thrown unto the floor by one of the bouncers in the bar, hitting his head in the process that caused bleeding in the brain. Postmortem results released by Mulago hospital indicate that the talented artist was hit on the head and his head got damaged. 
 
The municipal has also withdrawn the license of the bar and directed that the place is kept under lock and key. Lutaya adds that any forceful opening of the bar will attract a fine of one million shillings.

There should be thorough investigations before the business license is revoked.

At this stage the details of what happened are still scanty although all indications are that the late Sekibogo provoked the incident.

It is also true that the late Moses Sekibogo had a long history of indiscipline and getting involved in endless bar brawls. This is well documented,

Now what crime has the bar committed? Have you assessed how many innocent people will be affected by the closure of the place?

Think of the family that relied on the income realized from this business, think of the families of the workers of this place.

I don't see any reason for the closure because the bar didn't commit any crime but perhaps a street criminal.

The bar killed someone! No one deserves to die for sprinkling whiskey at others. That use of excessive force is unwarranted and probably not an isolated incident.

If the government does nothing, it will encourage the bar and others to continue using unnecessary lethal force. Shut it down before they kill someone else.

Mowzey was my Ob but surely, some people deserve to die, weak as he is how can he go about pouring whiskey on drunkards and expects a nice welcome.

What i know is that whoever committed the act did not intend to kill, the worst is that he will be found guilty of manslaughter, not murder although the court of public opinion demands that he goes for murder.

I disagree with your saying the bar killed someone when the police say the killer(s) is/are on the run.

Bars are public places frequented by both good and criminals.

Dear Odongkara

Can you please try to think and analyse the issue before responding.

1. the bar/bussiness require them to provide a safe place for everyone.

2. There is a culture of mob justice in uganda, which need to be wiped out.

3. We can not afford to turn uganda like Nigeria and south Africa where people fear to go due to rampant criminality .

4. We need to educate people that when you kill one person, alot of people are affected, such as his parents, wives, children, government as he pays taxes, airlines as he travels, machenics as he has a car, builders as he has been building houses, Banks as he has been borrowing money, Mobile phone companies.

His fans who are going to be depressed listerning to what your taking about.

Uganda never, used to be this violent until the last 25 years when things have gone out of order. No body seems to know that the ward MORAL EXISTS ANYMORE.

This is characteristics of over-reaction and heavy handedness in public administration in this country. Was it the bar owner that killed this guy (RIP), or the recklessness of some of the patrons alias Mowzey?

In other words, "a life that is not well examined is not worth living."

I can understand if the place is temporarily sealed off, for purpose of police investigation, but not Entebbe Municipal Council.

Otherwise life must go on. Unless of course the place has public hygiene and safety issues.
