While the third suspect police identified as Godfrey Wamala is on the run, Police held two people- Xavier Lukele and Egesa George (bar owner) held at Entebbe Police Station.

“My dear colleagues in the music fraternity, Mowzey Radio’s family, fans and Ugandans at large, it’s awful and sad to hear about the sudden and painful exit of our dear brother Mowzey Radio Sekibogo. I pray that Allah blesses our Colleague’s departed soul with eternal peace and give us and his family the strength and support to cope up with the loss as we go through this difficult time,” Bebe Cool posted on Facebook.
He added; I wish to inform all my fans in Uganda where I was going to hold my concerts this weekend starting from today, that me and the organizers (Jams production of Juma and Mc Cash) have agreed to postpone the concerts to dates that will be mentioned soon. This goes mainly to the fans in Adjumani and Arua. A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they’re still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Surely my namesake will not be forgotten. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. Rest in Paradise brother.
