16:15 hrs Police have Friday blocked a much-anticipated kickboxing match between Moses Golola’s Hungarian tormentor Nagy Andras and Ronald Mugula.

The fight was due today at 7pm at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds in Kampala.

Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Ibin Ssenkumbi says the law enforcement unit was not involved in the organisation of the event.

“We were not part of their organisation. And considering the terror threats the country is facing, this show cannot happen without adequate security,” Ssenkumbi told press.

However, a one Mr Kavuma, one the organizers of the function, said Police cleared the fight and promised security for the event.

This implies the organizers will lose millions of shillings invested in the preparations for the show.

It’s yet unclear why Police chose to step in at the last minute.

There was a press conference

Sponsored by Orient Bank, Rwenzori Water and UBC, the fight was being promoted by Rush Media Group which is over seen by sports anchor-cum-business-woman, Alice Namatovu and the Eagles band manager one Kavuma.

Ssenkumbi added Police was supposed to be informed in time so that they brief personnel to be deployed about the activities and how to handle it.

“We as Police need to be informed in time so that we orient our personnel, use sniffer dogs to first check the premises both before and after the ring is constructed,” said Ssenkumbi.

Ssenkumbi further said that the organizers deliberately refused to contact police saying that security will be provided by UPDF.

He added that police is mandated to protect life and properties as stipulated in the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda and therefore cannot allow risk Ugandans lives.

Ssenkumbi said that they still have a chance to inform Police but for today the function has been stopped.

He warned that Police must be informed in advance so that they prepare deployment.
