Prime Minister Approves Nyege Nyege Festival to Take Place

Following threats that the Nyege Nyege Festival would not happen this year, the Prime Minister has given a green light to the festival organisers to hold the event.

It should be remembered that on Tuesday afternoon, Tororo Woman MP Hon. Sarah Opendi called for the banning of the event, citing the festival fosters sexual immorality, in the guise of promoting tourism.

Her divulgence was backed by the Speaker of Parliament Hon. Anita Among, who vowed not to allow the function to take place.

in the most recent development, earlier today Prime Minister Rt Hon. Robinah Nabbanja held a meeting with the festival stakeholders and the matters related to the hosting of the Nyege Nyege Festival were discussed.

Described as “built on love, resilience, and passion for music,” the festival will take place from September 15 to September 18 at Itanda falls on the banks of the River Nile in Jinja District.

The Nyege Nyege Festival last happened almost three-year back, and thirsty partiers have already geared up to storm the event venue on d-day.
