Fans of popular local musician Jose Chameleone in Kyanamukaka, are cursing folowing the cancellation of his concert due to the alleged rebel scare in Masaka district.
Chameleone was scheduled to hold a concert tomorrow at the Kyanamukaka football ground, as part of his week long Masaka music tour.
He was also planning to use the concert to launch one of his new songs "Sweet Mutima" that currently enjoys massive airplay on local radio stations.
But the police cancelled the concert after leaflets threatening rebel attacks were early this week found in the sub counties of Kyanamukaka, Kabonera and Buwunga.
The leaflets contain messages accusing the Speaker of Parliament Edward Ssekandi and local security and administrative officers of frustrating Buganda Kingdom's quest for federalism.
The army and police officers have been deployed in the whole of Masaka district to respond to the said rebel threats and a curfew imposed from 10:00 pm till morning.
Noah Sserunjogi, the southern regional police Public Relations Officer, says the security committee stopped the concert because it would disrupt the joint operation by the army and police.
Sserunjogi explains that Chameleone's show was likely to attract so many people who would party beyond the 10:00 pm and violate the curfew.
