Events promoter Abbey Musinguzi commonly known as Abitex has distanced himself from embezzling promoter’s money.
The money that is said to have disappeared from Abitex’s hands was a stimulus fund given to all Ugandan promoters by Gen Salim Saleh as a compensation of what they lost during Covid19 lockdown.
However during an interview with NBS Uncut show, being the president of the promoter’s Association, Abitex said he received he money and distributed it accordingly to the right people that were supposed to receive it.
“I didn’t eat promoter’s money but being their president when we received te money we called all promoters and told them to hand in their files showing the money they had spend and we gave them money.” Abitex said.
There is a group of other people who say they are promoters but Abitex denied giving them money even after they handed in their files.
Abitex cleared the air about that group saying he doesn’t know them as promoters because they are not registered under the Association.
He added on that their files were not genuine because they had no proof of the money they had put in to be paid back.
Out spoken Abitex called on the entertainment industry to thank Gen Salim Saleh for being their for them in the hard times of Covid19 lockdown where they were unable to make any money.
