Police has tasked Big Talent boss Edrisa Musuuza aka Eddy Kenzo to give details of the four people who allegedly died in an accident during his return on Tuesday.
The singer returned this week from the United States of America where held a couple of shows, before scooping an award for Best African Entertainer at the Fifth Edition of African Entertainment Award USA 2019.
Before he returned, the singer rallied his fans to come through and give him a heroic welcome at the airport. But things didn’t go as planned as some of his fans were arrested and their motor bikes confiscated by police.
Hours later, reports from Kenzo’s camp alleged that four people had died during the process and many were injured, and rushed to hospital.
“My innocent people have been arrested, sprayed with teargas, others were knocked by 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 as well getting information that others died in this accident caused by the police,” Kenzo posted recently.
However, during a presser on Thursday, Patrick Onyango, the Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson denied Kenzo’s claims and requested him to prove his statement with evidence.
Onyango claimed that if people die in an accident, it’s always the police’s duty to pick up the dead bodies and take them to the city mortuary in Mulago. However, police doesn’t know the whereabouts of those dead bodies.
“I just want to ask Kenzo where he took the dead bodies because, the information I have in my file, is of one death. The only accident that happened was the hit and run where a boda boda cyclist, Kayongo Godfrey knocked a car bumper and fell down. He was then taken to Grade A for treatment and he is fine now,” Onyango said.
Kenzo is yet to respond.
