That the 2017 edition of the Uganda Entertainment was a jumbled mess is no longer news. Social media has, over the weekend, been abuzz with harsh criticisms. A witty lot of Ugandans even took to trolling Kabz Haloha of Haloha Brand Architects. Crafting memes to depict the hordes of blunders in the organization. And the fact, of course, that it was a flop. All cited that he should never lay hand on any Ugandan event as he is a failure.
This, because at last minute, many contracted service providers suddenly pulled out citing no pay. Much to the crippling of the final organization stages of the event. Silk Events, who were handling the stage and decoration where the first to pull out. Sources at the venue (Serena Hotel) when this happened relay to us that this was because Kabz had failed to pay the deposit and had started pulling hide and seek stunts. Yet all his feats were laced with such vicious arrogance and unapologetic stances.
And considering he had the contract, Kabuye Ronald always postured as the owner of the concept. News however reaching us has it that he was only a contract holder. Sources from Cents Events Uganda, the official copyright holders and proprietors of the event intimated to us that he was given a one year contract to rectify the messes he made last year.
“We gave him just one year hoping he’d get better. But he keeps on making the same blatant blunders every other year. We have scraped the contract. And the public should take note, Kabz Haloha and Haloha Brand Architects are no longer the organizers of the UEA’s,” relayed the CEO of Cents Events, Vincent Nsubuga.
An official statement released on all social media platforms of Cents Events read;
