Embooko singer Master Blaster shot in bar brawl
Embooko singer, Master Blaster, real name Cornelius Oloya succumbed to bullet shots on Tuesday morning. He was shot twice in the stomach, died at Mulago Hospital hours later.

The shooting happened at Eden Pub in Bwaise when a scuffle broke out between Sudanese party goers who were having an end of year party and Ugandan youth. The Sudanese were having an exclusive party but this did not go down well with some youth who wanted to access the venue.

A scuffle broke out at about midnight and went on till morning at 6:00am when the shooting took place. The bar management was forced to lock the Sudanese revellers inside the bar until morning but on opening up, their rivals were waiting for them, sparking another fight.

Kawempe Division police commander, Hashim Kasinga told one publication that as police tried to disperse the crowd, one of them tried to reach out to an armed policeman and that is how the stray bullet caught Master Blaster. He was taken to Mulago by police where he died two hours later.

Police has spent the better part of the day in running battles with Bwaise residents who were trying to harm Sudanese residents in the area, most of them have sought refuge at neighboring police stations. In some instances, police has deployed heavily at homes with Sudanese nationals to avoid further fights.

Bobi Wine had to prevail over the Bwaise locals together with police before peace could return in the area. The singer's body was moved from Mulago mortuary to Bwaise and later National Theatre and on Thursday, the body will be taken to Kitgum.

The government of South Sudan has sent a condolence message to the family of the late Master Blaster, and appealed for calm. It was an accident and we are sorry for all those who have been hurt in the process a source from South Sudan Embassy in Uganda noted.
