The Police have said De Bar where Goodlyf Singer Mowzey Radio was beaten leading to his death at the beginning of the year, is not a crime scene anymore.
Speaking about the bar’s recent reopening, Deputy Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango said since police concluded their investigation and produced the prime suspect to court, De Bar ceased to be a crime scene.
“It can no longer be a scene of crime since we closed our investigation and took the suspect to court. For the other issues you can contact the Entebbe Municipal Authorities,” Onyango told a press conference on Tuesday.
De Bar Entebbe was closed on February 1, following a brawl that left singer Mowzey Radio in coma on January 22. He eventually died on February 1.
The local hangout was however reopened by the Entebbe Municipal authorities last week barely two months after its closure.
Dan Fred Lutaaya, Entebbe deputy town clerk while speaking at De Bar’s reopening, said the Municipal council in liaison with other relevant security agencies have since been scrutinizing the bar to ascertain that proper security measures are put in place for the good of clients.
He revealed that De Bar had adhered to some standards, adding that it will first operate under the Municipal’s direct surveillance for at least three months.
Police in February arrested Godfrey Wamala, also known as Troy, a bouncer at De Bar for allegedly assaulting the singer and inflicting severe head injuries. Mowzey was rushed to Case Hospital in Kampala where he died a week later.
Wamala has since been on trial for murder charges and is on remand at Kigo government Prison.
