State House tells off Bobi Wine about his blocked shows

Bobi Wine attempts to engage the police

At his One Love Beach Busabala, Kyagulanyi, on Wednesday said the Police turned it into a war zone, blocking all the roads leading to the beach.

 Kayima stated that the event had not been cleared by the Police because the organizers failed to meet the guidelines. According to Kayima, one of the guidelines they did not fulfill was to write to Inspector General of Police for clearance.

However, George Musisi, a human rights lawyer, advised Kyagulanyi to sue the Police, if he can prove that he had full filled all the requirements.

“He can sue Police seeking damages,” Musisi stated, referring to the concerts Police cancelled.

When we contacted the firm organized the event, owned by Abbey Musinguzi, he made it clear that they had fulfilled all the Police guidelines

Musinguzi told our website that they want Government to state whether hiring Bobi Wine for music show is prohibited.

“It is only the President who can answer these questions. Others seem not to know why they are doing it. “We have made losses because of hiring Bobi Wine. We thought by meeting the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga and IGP, the matter would be addressed but it seems we wasted our time,”

He said. Recently, the Speaker told the Police that blocking Bobi Wine’s shows was unlawful.

However, the State House advised Musinguzi and his group to officially write to the President, if they want to meet him. Don Wanyama, the Senior Presidential Press Secretary, wondered why the promoters were involving the President because he was not the one blocking Bobi Wine from performing at music shows.

“His shows were blocked by the Police and they have reasons why they are blocking them. Please, ask them, not the President,” Wanyama responded.
