Veteran musician Daniel Kazibwe alias Ragga Dee who was dragged to court for sound pollution has said he expects the court process to be fair to him.
The singer today appeared before City Hall Court, where he was dragged over the loud music coming out of his bar Big Mikes in Kololo.
Ragga Dee said he was surprised getting the summons just two days ago, yet the public was already aware of it.
“Journalists were the first to get informed about the summons before I did; I am a senior citizen of this country who can easily be traced and served in time,” he said.
He added that although he wasn’t against the operation through which his bar was closed, it still looked selective.
The singer said that, his night club is not in close proximity with residential houses, and that other clubs in the area were not touched by the authorities.
Raga Dee claims his bar has been fulfilling all the legal requirements to KCCA throughout its fifteen years of operation, yet management received no warning when officials came in to shut it down.
“We have incurred a lot of losses ever since the closure. We have over 70 staff members whom this club employs and they have families to look after.”
The state prosecutor in this matter which was for plea taking Hillary Musimenta, informed court that both parties were under negotiations to have it settled outside court, thus asked for an adjournment.
The trial magistrate Patrick Talisuna adjourned the matter to 1st April 2019
