Thousands of revellers on Sunday from across East Africa and the world have gathered for Uganda’s Nyege Nyege festival which was allowed to go ahead despite a threat to ban it because of immorality.
Critics including several Members of Parliament and the speaker of parliament described it as a breeding ground for sexual immorality and homosexuality.
But some say the threat jerked up ticket sales to the electronic music festival.
Zawedde Patricia Zoe told newsmen that she was very excited to witness this year’s festival as the feeling of excitement over the festival in Uganda is hitting the roof top.
Patricia Zoe who chatted with reporters in Uganda’s capital further added that the festival is just about people getting together and having fun with one another .
Nyege Nyege festival is holding at the scenic Itanda Falls on the banks of the River Nile.
