“Most (of) the people who had paid and were ready to start the party set for Forest mall Lugogo where there was to be a bus to take them on the trip, to their surprise there was nothing like a bus. On trying to contact MC Africa on his known Number it was not going through, also the contacts on the fliers are dead,” the report continued.

He also pointed out that he was scammed as well.
