Uganda's Laws On Music Not Aimed At Bobi Wine - Govt

Gender minister Peace Mutuuzo has denied claims that the proposed regulation on artists and music is targeting Bobi Wine, arguing that the regulations are meant to "streamline the industry and protect local artists". The proposed regulation requires artists to register with the Gender Ministry, submit their works for approval and documentation, secure a valid practicing certificate for performance and stay clear of illegal drugs.
