Celebrated music producer David Ebangit aka Washington has been evicted from his small rented 2 bedroomed ‘Muzigo’ house in Kasaasi, a Kampala suburb over unpaid rent arrears.
Washington’s eviction came after his Landlady, a one Grace Kasiime rushed to court and got a court order which was later implemented by the no-nonsense, mean-looking court brokers. The Landlady accused Washington of failure to pay more than shs 3m.
“Washington has not been picking my calls for more than three months, that’s why I had to get a court order in order to chase him from my house peacefully,” she said.
The landlady said that with the intervention of Kasaasi police, brokers removed two trucks of household properties.
Washington’s properties are currently in safe custody at Police until he clears the debts.
It was a shame that a person of Washington who produces most of the big hits in Uganda for singers like late Radio and Weasel, Chameleon, Bebe Cool, Bobi Wine and many others could fail to raise rent.
“But Ugandans have just supported this man recently when they fully attended their 10 yrs of their record label at Lugogo cricket Oval where they even managed to fly in an International artiste,so why would he fail to settle such small bills?” one of the fans who witnessed the eviction was heard wondering.
By the time of eviction, Washington was nowhere to be seen and was not picking calls.
