Following their recent meeting with the Attorney General and culture sector stakeholders, the Uganda Musicians Association has come out and clarified that the above-mentioned meeting focused on the future of Uganda’s culture sector and nothing more.
In a document that they shared on social media and addressed to the general public, it states that on the 9th of November 2023, key figures from the Uganda Musicians Association including the General Secretary Phina Mugerwa and the President Cinderella Sanyu Okuyo took part in an important discussion with various government officials and other arts & culture stakeholders and that the meeting focused on the future and continued development of the culture and creative sector of Uganda.
“It has come to our attention that there are misconceptions in the public domain, particularly following statements made by Mr Eddy Kenzo. This statement has inadvertently misrepresented the nature of the meeting, suggesting it was about establishing a new governing body of Ugandan musicians. We wish to correct this impression and clarify that the Uganda Musicians Association has not come to any understanding with any federation not until the right policies, processes, and procedures are followed,” reads part of the document.
It further stated that UMA is committed to fostering a vibrant cultural sector and will continue to engage in constructive discussions with the relevant stakeholders.
