Police has asked Kyandondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi to cancel his upcoming Kyarenga concerts over failure by organisers to meet public safety and security standards.

The concerts were scheduled to take place during the Easter Holiday at his One Love Beach in Busabala, on the shores of Lake Victoria.

“We want to inform members of the public that despite the elaborate and clear guidelines with the promoters, regarding their preparations, manner and conduct during the concert, as well as the safety and security demands from their side, our intelligence picked up information that the event was still a risk to public safety,” the letter reads in part.

“As responsible citizens, we urge the promoters to take advice and the safety of revellers seriously by suspending or stopping the concerts, until such a time that robust public security and safety mechanisms are put in place.

Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga said in the notice that Police would make safety a top priority at all major music events and venues.

“All our territorial police commanders have been informed accordingly to ensure no planned concerts are carried out in unsecure environments,” he stated.
