Police have blocked Kyadondo East member of parliament Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu popularly known by his stage name Bobi Wine from performing in Gulu.
Bobi Wine was scheduled to perform in Gulu on Sunday yesterday but his concert was cancelled by the police at the last minute.
Our reporter in Gulu told us that a war has been launched on all Bobi Wine posters in Gulu town. Too much deployment as Bobi vows to defy since he was cleared a month back.
On Saturday, Bobi Wine was in Jinja for his Kyarenga Extra music concert and his show was massively attended by various from all walks of life
Meanwhile, Mityana Municipality Hon Zaake Francis Butebi has been ordered to report at Kibuli CID Headquaters tomorrow Monday at 9am.
Commenting on the incident Bobi Wine who was in October blocked from having his concert at Namboole Stadium had this to say;
So yet again, our concert in Gulu has been blocked by the police! We wrote to them three weeks ago informing them of the show and requested them for security. We compiled with all the laws and invested a lot of resources preparing for the show. Today, the police showed up at the venue cutting all banners and other advertising material without giving any explanation. Police patrol vehicles have been moving around Gulu town, removing all the banners and posters! The promoters have been trying to call all responsible officers, and all they say is that they have ‘orders from above’ not to let me perform.
Dear brothers and sisters in Gulu, I was looking forward to having a good time with you tonight. Very soon it will be possible. I know that God willing, one day, we shall free ourselves from this mess and be able to enjoy ourselves in the new Uganda.
In the meantime, we shall stop at nothing in challenging this kind of injustice and gross violation of rights. We shall communicate to the nation about our next step. Tomorrow we shall be at Gulu High Court at 9:00am, concerning the tramped up charges from the Arua incident.
