Uganda Police has arrested a person key in resolving the circumstance under which Ugandan musician Moses Ssekibogo aka Mowzey Radio of the Goodlyfe Crew was assaulted after an altercation at Entebbe’s De Bar on January 22, 2018.
“Katwe Police have arrested the suspected killer of singer Radio Mowzey. The suspect Godfrey Wamala Godfrey was found at a friend’s home in Kyengera where he had been hiding. The suspect is recording a statement at Katwe Police Station and will be transferred to Entebbe Police Station, Uganda Police confirmed on Monday.
Ten days after being beaten into a coma, Mowzey Radio died on Thursday morning at the intensive care unit at Case Hospital in Kampala. He was buried on Saturday.
“Following the gruesome incident of recent, that has led to the death of one of our top musicians aka Mozey Radio that happened in your bar, council within the powers versted in it to regulate and control businesses within her area of jurisdiction, has closed your bar with immediate effect,” the Town Clerk said in a statement.
Radio was reportedly knocked out cold by assailants last week in Entebbe after an altercation at Da Bar. Police have since made several arrests as they seek answers.
No one has yet been charged but a video circulating on video shows an incident that is said to be what happened. Those who know De Bar say the video is from another location and not related.
Pathologists at Mulago said, “Radio was badly hit on the head which caused a brain damage hence his demise.”
