Uganda police have arrested Kyandodo East member  of parliament Bobi Wine and Colleague’s as they manoeuvred to his scheduled presidential consultations meeting venue in Lira town.

Bobi Wine and his People Power pressure group are still on the verge to continue with already state crippled programme of consultations with supporters on his plans to challenge Yoweri Museveni, 75, who has ruled Uganda since 1986.

Police has not yet issued any statement as to why the legislator and his colleagues were Whisked away at breakneck speed. Although Bobi Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, was trying to stage an assembly in an enclosed area their attempts seem to be in vain as state police force is and remains  to display the will to always cripple any such attempt.

New reports incoming indicate that Bobi Wine and Colleague’s who were being driven at breakneck speed have been dumped at Karuma trading centre and ordered to return to Kampala by the police forces on ground.

Since he became a legislator in 2017, Wine has rattled Ugandan authorities, who see him as a threat to Museveni. There are growing concerns that the election campaign could turn violent as security forces restrict opposition activists’ interactions with supporters.

The singer and activist has called on Museveni to retire, saying young people must prepare to take over leadership of the east African nation. Museveni, who has indicated he will run again for president, has accused Wine of trying to incite his supporters into rioting.

Wine came to political prominence nationally in 2017 when, as an independent candidate, he won election as a lawmaker representing a constituency near Kampala. He has since successfully campaigned for other opposition candidates, raising his profile and attracting encouragement to run for president. He is a controversial figure, and has faced repeated accusations of homophobia.
