The Executive Director of Uganda Media Centre Ofwono Opondo has applauded Uganda Police for successfully blocking blocking Bobi Wine shows on Boxing day.
Appearing on NBS frontline programme, Ofwono said that the musician cum politician is suffering from what he termed as political excitement.
The government spokesperson added soon the excitement will fade away and the Kyadondo East legislator will tone down.
He went on to say that it will take time but eventually, Bobi Wine will calm down and will be forgotten.
The blocking of Bobi Wine shows comes days after security minister General Elly Tumwine warned that Bobi Wine real names Kyagulanyi Robert will soon face the ‘occupational hazards’ in his musical career.
This came after Bobi Wine on Tuesday while on the floor of Parliament told Speaker Rebecca Kadaga to reign over Uganda Police Force after they continued to block his music concerts. Bobi Wine said that the Police has frustrated his musical career to the extent that he has even been denied a right to gospel.
“On five occasions, Police has stopped me from holding concerts. The first was when I was blocked from holding my concert at Namboole and then another one in Gulu and the most recent in Jinja. Even promoters at my One Love Busaabala Beach have been stopped from organizing concerts there,” Bobi Wine said.
However, he (Tumwine) was ruled out of order when he said that what Bobi Wine is going through is simply an occupational hazard and that he should deal with it.
“Hon Kyagulanyi can bear me a witness. When he came to this Parliament I warned him on how he will balance politics and music….So what he is facing is just an occupation hazard,” Gen Tumwine said, before he was ruled out of order.
