Artistes Protest against National Theatre Demolition


The Police this morning arrested artistes protesting the redevelopment of the Uganda National Cultural Centre commonly known as The National Theatre.
Government plans to make a facelift on the theatre ahead of next year’s Jamafest – but the move is contested by artistes and the public who suspect it could be a ploy to give out the land to private developers. Police arrested playwright Phillip Luswata – who was accused of leading the demonstration against the development.
