Artiste Ziza Bafana (Richard Kasendwa) has been detained at Kalisizo police station, because, he says, of his statements about Bobi Wine.
By the time of his arrest, the dancehall artiste had just completed his 14-day quarantine after performing in Tanzania two weeks back.
Ziza Bafana shared the information of his arrest on social media earlier today.
“Dear friends and family I take this opportunity to inform you that my team and I have been arrested over talking about people power and people who support MR KYAGULANYI SSENTAMU,” he posted.
Ziza Bafana along with a deejay known as Shan were arrested after they organised a music show at a relatively reserved hangout known as Happiness Motel in Mutukula.
Reports reveal that the singer was arrested after his performance with Shan (Shaban Nsamba), from Horizon Hotel at Lwegaba where they had gone to rest.
The “Tuli majje” artiste added that after completing a 14-day quarantine yesterday, the doctors acknowledged that they are Covid-19 negative.
According to police warrant of arrest however, the two along with; Shafiiki Ismail, a music promoter; Allon Kakiza, an artiste; and Bashir Batistuta Ssekamanje, a TV presenter with BBS TV were arrested and charged with disobedience of lawful orders, specifically crossing into Tanzania for a music concert without permission during the Covid-19 global pandemic.
