How many musicians are members of UAH? Why have not they formed a strong union to protect their intellectual property and fight for the welfare of members? For example, if they were organized, they could secure groups insurance for their members at reasonable rates.
I have to say Ms. Kisakye death hit me very hard even though I had never met her. It was her music online. A lot of things seem to have gone wrong. Mr Mathias Walukagga said it all ” Ugandans bakoowu”.
I am so saddened by the passing of Ms. Kisakye (RIP). The musicians need to come together quickly and form a group that can negotiate affordable medical coverage for members from leading insurance firms in Uganda. they should also engage decent law firm on record to fight for their intellectual property rights and represent them too.
Tell them to anticipate challenges and plan for them.
They also need the services of accountants. They can pool resources and retain one or two firms to help with their costs, receipts and payments. They must not merely entertain others without paying themselves first. Yes they are entertainers but they must also enjoy the fruits of their products. They are also business people.
From what has been written about the late Ms. Kisakye’s condition, there is some sort of medical negligence somewhere. How could she go in Mulago with a septic wound that needed dressing and deteriorates so fast? Something is not right. Unfortunately, in Uganda there will be no post mortem so we will not know what killed her. Multiple organ failure may have been triggered by something done to her in the hospitals. Kitalo nnyo.
