The Uganda police for once last Sunday acted swiftly in arresting seven partiers in a Kiwatule apartment. Some managed to flee from the heavily armed officers by jumping through the apartment’s windows – Spiderman style.
From what we heard, the chaps, and some chicks, had made it a habit to play loud music and drink heavily every day of the week. They have been at it since March or there about, when President Museveni insinuated that ‘drinking’ anything other than milk in large groups was prohibited.
Back to Kiwats. Police claim they received a complaint from a letter published in one of the dailies, in which some guy gave away these chaps for loudly singing ‘Enjoyment ku Enjoyment’ and ‘If we die we die’.
According to the lugambo guy, the partiers disrupted their peace and, (for emphasis), this kind of behaviour was going to bring Covid-19 to their rather quiet village. What hurt Mr Lugambo guy most is that for months on, pimps – or is it guys in pointed shoes swinging keys with the Subaru logo – have been ferrying ladies of the night to the party buli daily.
He had reported his ma predicaments in vain.
The guys manning Kiwatule police post had a couple of times walked up to the said venue, only to end up joining the party.
Lugambo guy was incensed more.
Like those women on Mama Tendo, he was not going to remain silent. Luckily his letter was well received.
With zero kitu kidogo this time, and a live video feed, Tumwesigye, Kansiime, Arinda, Muhame, Matsiko, Kisakye and Mbabazi were nabbed. Mubiru and his friends managed to escape, Superman style. Or was it Spiderman? Their Glenfiddich and oba what other alcoholic brands were also captured as evidence.
On the same night, some other bu bars had been raided in Bunga and Bugolobi. Laventi in Najjera and some bar in Masaka had suffered the same fate but only because some teen had recorded a live video of himself doubting the authenticity of corona.
Truth be told, these parties and binges or whatever you want to call them are happening almost everywhere, every day. It is like they never really stopped and attract all classes of people.
Partiers claim this is their way of blowing off steam brought by the lockdown. And rightly so.
These gatherings are never brought to the fore because the neighbours are just too good, they know how to keep quiet. Or they usually get to jump in.
Unlike the Kiwatule boys. Instead of engaging their neighbours, they imported girls from as far as Rwashamire to entertain them. Bad move.
Now the next Presidential address does not look good, thanks to the lugambo guy.
