Police and military last evening surrounded the home of Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine, a few hours after he had announced his plan to walk to police in a public demonstration to protest continuous brutality against his music shows and Opposition politicians. He urged all aggrieved Ugandans to join the fight against injustice.
The president of Uganda’s leading opposition political party Patrick Amuriat took to social media to send a consoling message to Bobi wine and a strong warning to president Museveni whom he referred to as Junta. The message went as follow.
Very soon and very soon this impunity will be no more. Ugandans will be free and able to go about their business without the junta breathing over their necks.
The attack on Mr. Wine and his business is an attack on all Ugandans who make a great sacrifices for the liberation of Uganda. Last week it was Dr. Besigye locked up for nearly the whole day for speaking on a radio station in Mubende.
The week before POA was incarcerated for a full night in Tororo and arraigned in court on trumped up charges. These are accounts of the recent past alone. I condemn these acts in the strongest terms possible.
This kind of harassment is a good reason for all pro-democracy seeking people to unite. We should act as a body which when one part is affected the whole is. People’s Power and not Mr. Museveni’s courts or even petitions to a toothless Parliament will definitely be our source of liberation.
Stopping concerts, imprisoning activist or even stopping them breathing will not save the junta from winding up. Let’s stop just only waiting for the 2021 elections.
Uganda Unite! We must act now!
