AMSTERDAM- Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi also known as Bobi Wine has castigated Police over the impunity and stringent measures put on him as he returns home on Thursday.
Bobi Wine who made a stopover in capital Amsterdam, Netherlands from United States where had he travelled for specialised treatment following his violent arrest in Arua on August 13 in which he has continuously accused soldiers of the presidential guard under the Special Forces Command (SFC) of torturing him while in military detention, has attacked police officers saying they want to decide who picks him and where he goes go upon arrival.
“Why do these police officers allow themselves to descend so low? They now want to decide who picks me and where I go upon arrival?” Bobi Wine wrote on social media also adding that none of his family members will pick him but he will instead find them home.
Police spokesperson Mr. Emilian Kayima earlier today issued tight guidelines to be followed by the legislator upon arrival at the Entebbe international Airport saying that “he [Bobi Wine] will only be received by his close family members at the airport after; he will be escorted to his home. There will be no rallies.”
Kayima also warned that there is no family member or the People Power member that has informed them about any plans by the legislator to hold a procession and any attempts to hold one will be a breach of the Public Order Management Act.
“Police and other security agencies have the intelligence of countrywide mobilization of different groups of people who are being distributed with Red T-Shirts and posters calling upon them to participate in processions and assemblies to receive the Bobi Wine but we are ready for them,” Kayima said.
However, Bobi wine has responded to police orders with a travel plan contrary to that issued by police earlier.
“Well, for your information, no single family member will receive me at the airport; I will find them home coz [because] I know where home is. I will be received by friends, colleague leaders, and artistes. I will then go and see my sickly grandmother briefly at Najjanankumbi from where I will head to Kamwokya for lunch with my family (brothers and sisters) before I go to my home in Magere,” Bobi Wine wrote on Facebook.
He added that he is free Ugandan with the right to move freely in the country.
“The police has no business telling me who receives me and who cannot or where I go and where I cannot. This impunity must stop! Wama see you, friends, tomorrow,” he added.
