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.
