KAMPALA – Police have set tough conditions under which Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine will stage his Easter music shows.
Bobi Wine had earlier accused police of remaining silent on his letter, notifying the force of his intentions to hold a concert at his One Love Beach in Busabala and others upcountry towns.
But in a letter dated April 15, police director of operations Asuman Mugenyi told Bobi Wine’s promoters, Abitex management the stringent rules to be followed.
“Police has taken note of your intended events, however for comprehensive security planning, there is need for the following information from you the organisers; clearances to use the intended venue, detailed programme for each activity and lists of performers at each venue,” the letter reads in part.
In the letter, Bobi Wine was also asked to give the expected number of revelers for each of the events, measures put in place for crowd control, proposed traffic management among other requirements.
On Easter Monday, Bobi Wine will perform at his One Love beach in Busabala, Wakiso District. He will then perform in Lira on May 3, Arua on May 4 and Gulu on May 5.
Last year, police accused Bobi Wine of failing to notify them in time and blocked his show on Boxing Day at the last minute.
The same show had been previously blocked at Mandela National Stadium with claims that the stadium had been earlier booked for a wedding function.
In 2018, Bobi Wine’s show that was meant to take place in Bukoto in Kampala was also blocked at the last moment.
