Police in Ugandan have taken into custody a woman who was caught on Tuesday at the gravesite of Ugandan singer Moses Ssekibogo aka Mowzey Radio.
According to a tweet on NTV Uganda’s Twitter handle, the woman, identified as Maureen Namuli, was believed to be performing acts of witchcraft.
Police later took the woman – who appeared restless on video footage produced by NTV Uganda – to Butabika mental hospital in Kampala where she was expected to undergo an examination that would determine her mental state.
The Ugandan singer died last week from injuries he sustained during a brawl in a bar in Entebbe and was buried at his mother’s home on Saturday.
