KAMPALA – Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has insisted that his Independence Day music concert scheduled for his One Love Beach in Busaabala, Wakiso District, will take place even as police is yet to pronounce itself on the matter.
Addressing journalists at his music studio in Kamwokya, a city suburb, Bobi Wine whereas police have not responded to his letter, he has done the duty of informing them as the law requires.
“We are interpreting the silence from the police as a green light,” he said, insisting that the preparations for the concert dubbed ‘Osobola’ are in high gear.
Bobi Wine also warned that he will personally walk to the police headquarters on Wednesday if he does not receive any reply to his letter by the end of the day.
His remarks come after Mr Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson, told journalists earlier on Monday that police is yet to receive an official communication from the territorial commanders where the concert will be held.
He said the commanders are tasked to visit the scene and see whether it complies with the set minimum security standards such as fire extinguisher, body scanners.
He said without the confirmation of the commanders, the show will not take place.
Last year, Police blocked Bobi Wine’s music concerts over Christmas despite Parliament saying the move was unconstitutional.
On Christmas day, he was meant to perform at Ggaba beach and on Boxing Day he was to hold his concert at his One Love Beach in Busabala.
Despite police earlier allowing the two concerts to take place, they later turned around and blocked them to the chagrin of Bobi Wine.
