Ugandan celebrities have joined hands to help in offsetting the accumulating hospital bill of renowned artiste Moses Nakintije Ssekibogo aka Mowzey Radio.
Radio is currently receiving treatment at Case Hospital in Kampala after he was allegedly beaten into a coma during a fight at De Bar in Entebbe, some 35km from Kampala.
His hospital bill is reported to have accumulated to about 20 million Ugandan shillings (about Sh600,000).
At the same time, singer Joseph Mayanja, popularly known as Jose Chameleon, told journalists in Kampala that the Neera singer had been taken off life support and is responding well to treatment.
Meanwhile, socialite Brian Kirumira aka Bryan White has donated 25 million Ugandan shillings (about Sh800,000) in cash towards Radio’s hospital bill fund.
“I am a big fan of the entertainment industry and Radio and Weasel are among the artistes who have contributed to the growth of the industry for the last 10 years. When I got to learn about Mowzey’s condition, I decided to come with 25 million Ugandan shillings to cater for the hospital bills and it is not the last time I am coming here.” said Bryan white.
Three more people have been arrested to help police with investigations into this incident. This brings the total number of suspects in police custody to five. Police told the Ugandan media that they have arrested two waitresses and another man whose names were withheld.
George Egesa, the proprietor of De Bar, and a friend by the name Xavier Rukere are also in custody.
