KAMPALA – Kyadondo East legislator and 2021 presidential hopeful Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has come out to give his thoughts on an incident where city socialite Sipapa shot at the Fire Base Crew camp in Kamwokya last Sunday.
In a statement he released on his social media platforms, Bobi Wine explained how Sipapa attacked his crew members as they were busy celebrating their reunion on Sunday.
Sipapa who was in the company of his two other colleagues, armed but clad in causal outfits, packed in the middle of the road and when road users peaceful asked them to clear the way, they responded by firing live bullets.
“Last Sunday, members of the Fire Base Crew organized a reunion in Kamwokya. In the middle of the reunion, NRM operative Olim Charles aka Sipapa together with two other armed plain-clothed men drove in with Motor Vehicle No. UBE 229E and decided to park in the middle of the road, next to Chairman Nyanzi’s business place in Kamwokya,” Bobi says in the statement.
He adds that the road users peacefully asked them to clear the way, but they responded by firing live bullets towards the unarmed, non-violent citizens.
“The assailants immediately jumped into their vehicle and sped off. Thankfully, their bullets didn’t get anyone- but hit walls of the building! As an afterthought, Sipapa later claimed that his car had been pelted with stones, which prompted them to respond with bullets,” the legislator explains.
He further notes that unsurprisingly, the security agencies have not done anything to hold Mr. Sipapa and his accomplices accountable for their crimes.
“It is shocking that the panicky regime is now deploying armed criminals in broad daylight to terrorize and intimidate citizens with impunity. If anybody thinks that this will deter us from the cause of redeeming our country that we are deeply invested in, I have bad news for you: you will not succeed,” he stressed.
Bobi Wine maintains that despite such intimidating actions by extremists being done against his people, they are not about to back down on his quest of redeeming this country.
“We shall and must continue to demand accountability for these wanton crimes against our people by the decadent, tired regime.”
