KAMPALA–Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has petitioned court protesting Police’s action of banning him from performing at music concerts in the country.

Through his lawyers led by Ladislus Rwakafuzi, Kyagulanyi contends that the police ban violates his right to fair hearing, right to freely express himself,assemble and associate as well as his right to work enshrined in Article 40(2).

The musician-turned law maker now wants court to stop police from blocking and interfering with his concerts and performances as well as appearances.

Bobi Wine’s shows slated for Kamuli and Mukono were blocked by the police on grounds that the Bikwase Kyagulanyi singer violated police instructions when he turned his latest show at Busabala Beach into a political rally of sorts.

Speaking to PML Daily in an interview, Bobi Wine said: “I have a right to do business like any other musician. Police has violated this right.”
