A part-time disc jockey was killed by revelers after he was accused of failing to play their favorite music in Nebbi, a district in Northern Uganda.

The DJ – a senior three student at Parombo Secondary School was operating in one of the disco halls in Akworo Sub-county when the mob descended on him – taking his life away.

Jerry Okirwoth increased the count of people who have senselessly lost their lives to five in the district over the past week.

Speaking to Daily Monitor, Mr. William Bob Labeja, the Nebbi Resident District Commissioner blamed the management of the disco hall for failing to protect the DJ.

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.

Bob Labeja

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