Celebrated producer David Ebangit aka Washington, who was with the late singer Moses Radio on the day he was killed, has finally spoken out.
According to Washington, on the fateful day, he found Radio at his home in Makindye. He wanted to go to Entebbe because he was constructing a house there and asked Washington to escort him.
Together with another person yet to be identified, they got into the car at around 3pm and drove to Entebbe. We were three in the car. On the site, Radio got a phone call from a one Pamela, who asked him to find her at Da Bar.
They walked to Da Bar between 5-6pm and according to Washington, Pamela was at the bar with a group of her friends. They apparently sat on one side while Washington sat on the other side.
He says that he started getting a bad feeling about what was happening and asked Radio to go but the deceased insisted that they stay. At that time, according to Washington, he briefly walked out to rest in the car before returning.
He then reportedly asked Pamela to tell Radio that they should leave, she then said Mowzey was about to get done.
Washington says he insisted and went inside Da Bar, only to realise that they had changed their location.
“I sat with him for about 5 minutes. They brought a bottle of whisky and I saw him paying the money. He got the whisky and started pouring in different glasses. He then got agitated and poured whisky on the manager, the one who was talking ill about him.
“They didn’t react because they continued laughing but I noticed the manager wasn’t happy. When I asked Radio what he had done, he said that ‘they know what they were doing’. In about 5 minutes, the manager got very angry and threw the table away. The bar manager then came for Radio and they were separated by this tall guy, Troy, and Hassan. I told Pamela to pick Radio out because they were together.”
“On the way out, towards the door of the club, this tall guy, Troy, came shouting ‘you have disrespected the owner of the bar’. He lifted Radio up and threw him down, heard him hit his head down. I heard his head crack.”
They picked up Radio and drove him to Emmanuel Hospital and there was a bit of delay.
“We then requested for an ambulance to Nsambya. From Nsambya Hospital, we were referred to Case hospital because they told us that the ICU was full.
“Mowzey Radio didn’t fight at all. This man Troy grabbed him and threw him down. The picture circulating is of the person who killed Radio. I can’t forget the face of the man who killed my brother. I asked Pamela to get Mowzey out of the bar four times. She didn’t do enough to protect Mowzey because she is the one who invited us.”
However, Washington’s narration has failed to satisfy a large section of the public who believe there is something which he is hiding away from them.
“Now look at this Washington thing, why is it you have been quiet not until your name has been mentioned and circulating on social media? Why didn’t you tell us all this when Mowzey was still in hospital so that all those people face charges? If Pamela couldn’t take away Radio, what did you do as a man in your capacity as in trying to take him away?” one Jude Kizito asks.
“HE was grabbed and thrown down while you were watching each and every thing…What did you do to protect Mowzey since you were with him?” Rymes Rickxon asks.
“If the manager got angry before they were separated and I will assume everything was back to normal then what prompted TROY to beat up Mowzey? What was Washington waiting for to tell this story?”
