At the same time, Entebbe Town clerk has ordered for the immediate closure of De Bar, where the said fight involving Radio took place.

The entertainment joint has also been turned into a crime scene. The communication was effected on February 1, the day Radio passed on.

“Following the gruesome incident of recent that has led to the death of one of our top musicians Mowzey Radio that happened in your bar, Council within the orders vested in it to regulate and control businesses within her area of jurisdiction has closed your bar with immediate effect. Any forceful operations will attract a fine of UGX1M (about Sh30,000) to be paid to the Division A collection account in Stanbic Bank Entebbe Branch,” a letter from the Town clerk addressed to the bar management reads in part.

Three people have since been arrested in relation to the musician’s death.
