Mob kills Ugandan DJ for playing ‘boring music’



A Ugandan Disc Jockey , identified as Jerry Okirwoth, was reportedly killed by concert -goers for playing ‘ boring music ’ .
The DJ who was killed in a disco hall in Nebbi District , Northern Uganda , was a part – time DJ and student at Parombo Secondary School in Uganda .

He was reported to have been killed for failing to play their favourite songs , says an online media platform , Tina ! Magazine .

Meanwhile , the Nebbi Resident District Commissioner , William Bob Labeja , who confirmed the incident in a press conference blamed the management of the facility who according to him failed to protect the late disc jockey .

“ As the head of security in the district, I will no longer allow any disco operators to conduct their businesses in the sub- county and anybody who defies the directive will be prosecuted.

All disco halls in all sub- counties must be closed because they are causing insecurity and redundancy among the youth , ” he said .

In 2014 , three Zimbabwean men were charged with murder after assaulting a DJ on Independence Day for playing ‘ boring music ’ .

Elson Samuel Tirivavi , 22 , suffered severe head injuries after he was hit with a chair and a bottle in the ensuing fight.
