Police arrested and detained musicians Ibrahim Mayanja alias Big Eye Starboss and Omukunjja Atasera at National Theatre. (Big Eye and Omukunjja Atasera were arrested at the National Theatre )
The two were arrested for causing a commotion in response to the postponement of the Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) elections.
According to the videos we’ve seen, UMA General Secretary aspirant Omukunjja Atasera appears to have been injured by police while being arrested.
Omukunja cries out to police in one of the videos, pleading to be handled properly so that the officers do not break his arm.
He was surrounded by police officers, who bundled him onto a waiting vehicle and whisked him away to the nearest police station, which is thought to be the CPS.
Big Eye Starboss, another singer, was also bundled onto the waiting Police truck as he protested his arrest.
He asked police officers not to beat him up while climbing the truck because some of them had started thumping him while boarding the truck.
More information about their arrest will be released soon. (Big Eye and – celebrity jazz ug )
