Brass for Africa dismisses malicious reports linking it’s operations to unlawful activities in Uganda

KAMPALA — The management of Brass for Africa, a UK based charity organization famed for passing on life changing skills through music education has described as malicious, reports making rounds on social, linking its operations to unlawful activities in the country.

A malicious social media message in circulation had alleged that the Brass for Africa was involved in recruiting children into same sex vices, a claim the organization denies and describes as malicious.

“We have been made aware of a malicious and ill-intentioned message circulating on the WhatsApp platform. The intention of this message is the defamation of our good name and standing, and to cause distress to our partners, beneficiaries and the public.”

“Brass for Africa categorically denies all of the accusations in this malicious WhatsApp message. Brass for Africa is actively regulated by all the relevant authorities and is fully compliant in all areas.”

“Brass for Africa strives to create brighter futures for the children and youth of Uganda and their communities through music education, life-skills training and social impact projects. All funds raised by the organisation are used solely for this purpose. There is no other agenda,” the charity firm wrote, distancing itself from the earlier malice on social media.

Mr. Andrew Agassi, the Chief Operating Officer said that matte has been reported the matter to police and that investigations have commenced.

“Brass for Africa is offering a significant reward for any information leading to the successful identification of the person, or persons, who started this attack on our organization. Anyone with information to please contact the police or contact our lawyers Walyemera and Co. Advocates on 0782 448 598 or visit our office at the above address.

Such deliberate spread of false information and accusation of this nature spreads hate and has caused a security threat to our staff, partners and beneficiaries. We call on the authorities to expedite their investigations and produce those responsible in a court of law to answer for their actions.”

He also asked members of the public who receive malicious messages to completely disregard its content and see it for what it is; malicious and defamatory.
