As you may already be aware that Multi award winning singer Edrisa Musuuza aka Eddy has been trapped in Ivory Coast after failing to return to on time following the corovirus outbreak.
The Deadly COVID-19 has been killing people in thousands across the globe forcing many countries to close their boarders and suspend commercial flights. Uganda has not been an exception after president Yoweri Museveni suspended both local and international flights last week among measures to fight the virus.
Now a very worried Kenzo caught up in the mix has asked Ugandans to put him in their prayers amid fears that he might lose his life in Ivory Coast, one of the countries under total lockdown due to coronavirus pandemic.
The ‘semyekozo’ singer is currently stranded in the West African country after he had travelled there with his band for a performance.
Although he says his had landed safely and even concluded his performances, his flight was delayed and hence got trapped over there with his band having made it back to Uganda.
After a series of desperate appeals for his home country’s intervention to no avail, the singer appeared to have finally accepted the bitter fate that befell him and concluded that only prayers can save him now.
“Otherwise, let’s stay safe and pray for one another. Pray for me as I also pray for you to overcome this crisis,” Kenzo wrote before adding that the situation is Ivory Coast where he is caught up was very hopeless with cases accumulating each day that passes.
“Cases are accumulating each and every day here in Ivory Coast. People are honestly sick,” He observed.
Many of his followers were not amused by the fact that he travelled out of the country during a very precarious period and some even said he deserved the suffering.
He however, while responding to a section of Ugandans over what many termed as ‘negligence’ because he travelled during the period when the world is in this crisis, the BET award winner explained that the situation had not been too tense by the time he left and he was even able to arrive safely and finished all his performances.
“To some of you who say as to why I traveled out of Uganda in such an unsuitable condition worldwide, you all already know that by the time I left Uganda, everything was fine and stable though the virus had started to spread but it wasn’t that so scary as it is now. I even managed to reach safely in Ivory Coast and had a successful performance. Afterwards my band boarded back but I was on the next flight of which it was cancelled and I didn’t manage to come back home.”
With a very humble tone in his communication, he also appealed to those judging him to do so only after looking into the circumstances prevalent at the time of his travel.
Mukono Member of Parliament Betty Nambooze also defended Kenzo and asked government to allow some the Ugandans trapped abroad to return He said in case the singer dies from Ivory coast, it will be government to blame.
