They paid for their own tickets, left home excited to enter a new year without knowing that they were going to die in a chaos of a stampede at Freedom City Namasuba. Nine people have been confirmed dead.

According to reports we received, nine people were confirmed to have lost their lives with many more in hospitals injured following a stampede that occurred at Freedom City Mall during the New Year’s eve celebrations.

As part of the new year’s eve celebrations, partygoers flocked to Freedom City Mall, Namasuba to catch entertainment from their favorite artists.

However, at around midnight, a forgettable incident happened when the event’s emcees asked the partygoers to go outside and watch the fireworks display.

"It is alleged that the incident occurred at midnight when the event’s MC encouraged attendees to go outside and watch the fireworks display. After the display ended, a stampede ensued, resulting in the instant deaths of five people."- Luke Owoyesigire, The Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson said.

“The Katwe Territorial Police are investigating an incident of rush and neglect that occurred at a New Year’s Eve event at the Freedom City Mall Namasuba,” ASP Owoyesigyire noted that “the bodies have been transferred to City Mortuary Mulago.”

May their souls Rest In Peace.
