Ugandan Music Promoter Charged Over Deadly Stampede



A Ugandan music promoter has been charged with nine counts of negligence in connection with the deaths of ten people during a New Year’s Eve stampede at a concert in Kampala.


On Tuesday evening, Abbey Musinguzi, also known as Abitex, appeared before the Makindye chief magistrates’ court. He denied the charges and was imprisoned at Luzira.

The prosecution claims he caused a stampede at Freedom City Mall by closing outlets and leaving only one exit for more than 20,000 people.
