KAMPALA– Residents of Katwe in Central Division and Kamwokya in Nakawa Division have lit tyres in protest over police’s blocking of Bobi Wine’s Boxing Day music concert at his One Love Beach in Busabala, Wakiso District.
In Katwe, the main road was blocked with burning tyres by the residents in a move that seemed to catch police by surprise. The same happened in Kamwokya where the road moving to Kyebando was blocked by burning tyres.
Tension is currently high in the area.
This is a developing story and more details will come.
Police on Wednesday heavily deployed at Bobi Wine’s One Love Beach Busabala where he was planning to hold a music concert later.
While appearing on NBS TV this morning, the Police spokesman said
“As far as I’m aware, I don’t think the concert will happen unless it was cleared this morning. If Bobi Wine hasn’t written to Police about his concert, that’s not my issue because if he writes, we shall police his concert,” Kayima
Earlier in the day, Bobi Wine posted the following message on his social media;
“They have ordered the stage and sound engineers to bring down the stage and pull down all materials we had put in place for the show. They have arrested my employees including the kitchen staff and all the people who were preparing to sell merchandise at the show. They have sent away our guests who were lodging at the Beach tonight and ordered all people out of the premises. As we speak, the premises are completely cordoned off as if it’s a crime scene!! I’ve not stopped receiving calls from my staff and neighbors who are in too much fear, as these actions are being carried out in the deep of the night.”
