KAMPALA – Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has Monday afternoon been brought to Buganda Road Court by Police after detaining him briefly at Nagalama Police station.

The singer turned motor-mouthed politician and now an opponent of long-serving President Yoweri Museveni is at war with the Police for stopping his concerts, a source of his livelihood.

The MP was arrested earlier in the morning in Karerwe near the Mulago junction on his way from his home in Magere.

Bobi Wine, Police says, was arrested for trying to incite violence.

At the time of his arrest, hundreds of his supporters were swarming his vehicle, forming a large procession and blocking traffic.

Police spokesman Fred Enanga in a statement says the MP had “shown blatant disregard for the law.”

“He faces additional charges of holding an illegal assembly and procession after he was accused of organizing his supporters to escort him along the way,” Enanga said.
