Ugandan Entertainers Meet Speaker Kadaga Over ‘New Rules’

It is coming to two weeks ever since Ugandan artistes and other entertainers were hit with documents full of guidelines on how their industry should be streamlined. Since that moment, several meetings have been held with different stakeholders but nothing has so far been done about the rules and regulations.

However, on Monday morning the 28th of January, they held an important meeting with the speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon Rebecca Kadaga.

The speaker met the Uganda Performing Rights Association Society  (UPRS) at her office on Parliament building and discussed a number of issues with them.

Among those present at the meeting was the president of the association Andrew Benon Kibuuka, musician Sophie Gombya and comedian cum-legislator Kato Lubwama.

The most important thing that came out of the meeting was that the speaker agreed to arrange a meeting between the Association and Parliamentary Committee on Gender to raise their concerns as an Association during a period which Parliament is considering budget framework papers from different ministries.

In a meeting that happened a few days back at Jahazi Pier in Munyonyo, several entertainers agreed to write two letters, one addressed to the ministry of culture and another on to the Association of Performing Artists of Uganda with quite a number of their suggestions and requests.

It is believed that the meeting this morning might have been because of this letter.
