Ruger's Concert Pushed to Sunday (Tomorrow), Hours After Cancellation by Uganda Police
Imagine partying on a Sunday!
This is exactly what is going to happen to Ugandan party animals that were overly excited to finish Saturday (today) singing "Bad man looking good in Dior".
Straight after church tomorrow, revellers are expected to start pouring into the Ddungu resort in Munyonyo at 12 noon, a time when gates will open for the rescheduled Ruger concert.
Ruger's Concert was supposed to happen today, still at the same venue in Munyonyo but got blocked by the Uganda Police force who sealed off the venue after realising everything wasn't tick with the organisers.
Revellers who had already early birded to the venue were left in shock after Police sealed off the entire venue and this prompted a serious meeting between the event's organisers and the security force which lasted for about 2 hours.
The main outcome of the meeting was a postponement of the entire show to Sunday 13th Feb (Tomorrow) and this was confirmed in an official statement released by the organisers.
Statement on postponed Ruger Concert in Uganda
What Exactly prompted police to block the concert
According to their statement on their official website, the Uganda Police Force indicated that the organisers of the concert did not meet the minimum standards expected of an event of that magnitude.
That is to say, they did not sort out the following things;
- No proper traffic flow plan was in place
- Crowd control measures weren't in place
- No ambulance was seen incase of a medical emergency
- Territorial commanders were also not informed that there will be a big show in the area
Another surprising one from our dear Police was that, they were not informed of the estimated number of revellers expected to attend the show.
But from my experience with Ugandan concerts, it's pretty hard to tell how many people will turn up for your concert before it actually starts.
