0

New York da Styler, a prominent Ugandan musician known for his hit song “Nakwatamu,” is currently wanted by police after evading arrest during a raid on an LGBTQ community party at Club Silk Nakawa. The raid, conducted by Kampala Metropolitan Police, resulted in the apprehension of several partygoers, but New York da Styler and others managed to escape capture.

Patrick Onyango, the spokesperson for Kampala Metropolitan Police, confirmed that New York da Styler is now on their wanted list. The raid was part of ongoing enforcement actions against gatherings perceived to be in violation of Uganda’s strict laws concerning homosexuality.

Under Section 145 of the Penal Code Act cap 120, any form of sexual relations between persons of the same sex is outlawed as an unnatural offence, carrying a maximum penalty of life imprisonment upon conviction.

The incident at Club Silk Nakawa occurred late Saturday night when police received information about an alleged LGBTQ event taking place at the venue. According to eyewitnesses, officers stormed the club, interrupting the party and arresting attendees suspected of participating in what authorities deemed unlawful activities under Ugandan law.

In response to inquiries, Patrick Onyango stated, “The raid was conducted in accordance with the Penal Code Act, which prohibits any acts against the order of nature. New York da Styler is among those who fled the scene and is now wanted for questioning.”

New York da Styler alias Kateregga Charles, gained fame for his music career in Uganda’s vibrant entertainment scene. His hit song “Nakwatamu” has garnered significant popularity across the country, making him a recognizable figure in the music industry.

The raid and subsequent arrest of party attendees have sparked debates and reactions within Uganda and internationally, highlighting ongoing tensions between LGBTQ rights advocates and the Ugandan government. Human rights organizations have often criticized Uganda’s stance on homosexuality, arguing that the laws are discriminatory and violate basic human rights.

Efforts to contact New York da Styler for comment have been unsuccessful as of press time. The musician has not publicly addressed the incident or his current status as a wanted individual by Ugandan authorities.

The situation remains fluid as police continue their efforts to locate and apprehend New York da Styler. Meanwhile, discussions about the enforcement of Uganda’s anti-LGBTQ laws and its implications on personal freedoms and human rights are expected to persist both domestically and internationally.

Authorities urge anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of New York da Styler to come forward and assist in the ongoing investigation.
