KAMPALA – Chapter Four Uganda, a non-government organization has Thursday, December 27, 2018, warned that the continued actions by the Uganda Police and other authorities to frustrate and block Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine’s concerts are unconstitutional and unlawful.

In a social media statement, issued by the NGO, Police’s actions to block the singer’s concerts are illegal and partisan.

“We urge the Executive arm of government to respect the law,” the NGO wrote also arguing police to “stop impunity.”

Chapter Four Uganda also decried the arbitrary arrests, harassment, and beating of people involved saying such actions are also deeply concerning.

Police on Monday heavily deployed at Bobi Wine’s One Love Beach Busabala where he was planning to hold a music concert.

A big number of Police officers was visible on the ground and anti-riot trucks were at the venue. Police also blocked people from accessing the One Love Beach.

Bobi Wine said, “Up to now, we have not been given any official reason as to why the show was blocked.”

The singer cum politician said his management wrote to police long ago and complied with all legal requirements.
