KAMPALA- Organisers of Buganda Kingdom’s End of Year music concert commonly known as Enkuuka are under pressure from security agencies to remove Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine from the list of presenters, PML Daily has learnt.
A number of artistes, including Bobi Wine, are scheduled to perform at the concert that takes place in Lubiri, Mengo on December 31.
However, this website has learnt that security agencies are insisting that Bobi Wine should not be part of the show and that revellers shouldn’t be allowed to don the famous red attire, which is associated with the musician-cum artiste’s people power political pressure group.
Nevertheless, sources in Buganda Kingdom told this website that they have defied the security directive.
Asked whether they are worried that security agencies may block the show, the source replied: “We are ready for anything.”
When contacted, the Deputy Resident City Commissioner, Mr. Kabunga Daniel Ssentamu, could neither confirm nor deny that Bobi Wine will be allowed to perform at the concert.
“Nkuuka is not a political rally. It is musical performance where people come and enjoy. There won’t be politics,” Mr. Kabuunga said.
One of the organisers of the Enkuuka, Abbey Musinguzi, insisted that despite pressure from security agencies, the show will take place and revellers will be allowed to wear any colour of their choice.
“Have those people stopping you from wearing red bought for you clothes? Come in any color of your choice. Is politics barred from this country?”
“It is not in any way wrong to wear any colors. No one will stop you to put on your colors. Come in red, yellow, green name any colors,” Musinguzi told journalists at Bulange, Mengo on Thursday.
Police have so far blocked Bobi Wine from performing at three music concerts; one in Jinja, one at Ggaba and one at his One Love Beach in Busabala, Wakiso District.
On Thursday, sporadic protests broke out in different parts of Kampala as residents protested against police’s blocking of Bobi Wine’s music concerts.
Whereas police insisted that the legislator had not been cleared to hold the shows, hr presented documents indicating that he was cleared by the Force.
