Revelers in Jinja city over the weekend flocked the Bourbon bar and restaurant in a one off silent disco event. The event that happened during the day was organised to Fundraise over Shs 60M for Morris Owiny the founder of Atin African Foundation who was mercilessly attacked by thugs last month.

Owiny 35, was hit with stones on his head by thugs while at a vigil in Bugembe town council in Jinja city. The hit took him into a coma.

Joseph Ssemambo, a brother to Morris said that they have spent over 60 Million in different operations that have so far been carried out at Victoria hospital in Kampala and they no longer have money to keep funding the hospital bills, forcing them to do a fundraising.

“Our brother is in a critical condition and we have spent over Shs 60M but the situation is still bad. We have organised a silent disco as a way to fundraise for him. We however have followed the guidelines put by the government to avoid the spread of covid19. Even when the bars are still closed, we have organised this to save a life.” Ssemambo said.

Ssemambo also called upon all the leaders in Jinja and well-wishers to help so that they can save Owiny. He has been taking care of over 200 street children but all that is on a halt because there is no money”.
