KAMPALA – The Leader of Opposition (LOP) in Parliament Betty Aol Ochan has blasted Police leadership for blocking the concert of Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.
According to her, Police actions on Boxing Day were in disregard of a parliamentary resolution.
Police besieged Bobi Wine’s One Love Beach in Busabala firing live bullets and tear gas blocking the concert dubbed “Ye Ssebo.”
Police spokesperson SSP Emilian Kayima said the concert was not cleared.
Bobi Wine in a statement on his social media said police ordered his sound engineers to bring down the stage and pull down all materials they had put in place for the show.
The singer cum politician also claimed that police had dispersed his employees and guests.
Police maintained a presence at the beach to ensure the show doesn’t take place.
Police have blocked at least six similar shows involving Bobi Wine.
Now Betty Aol Ochan told says police decision to block Bobi Wine’s concerts is unacceptable and unethical.
“We seem to waste time, resolutions we come with are not taken seriously. Parliament does a lot of work but sometimes where resolutions do not augur well politically with the President [ Yoweri Museveni], yet it is about rights, we don’t get anything,” said Ochan.
She said it was completely unethical for the police to block Bobi Wine’s concerts since they are supposed to enforce the law.
She advised Bobi Wine to take legal actions against individual Police officers commanding a clampdown on his concerts in violation of a parliamentary resolution.
