“I Told You to Stay Away From Politics, Now Face the Music” – Gen Tumwine tells Bobi Wine

BY: Eyalama In Politics On

Security minister Gen Elly Tumwine has told Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Bobi Wine to face the ‘occupational hazards’ in his musical career.

This comes after Bobi Wine on Tuesday while on the floor of Parliament told Speaker Rebecca Kadaga to reign over Uganda Police Force after they continued to block his music concerts. Bobi Wine said that the Police has frustrated his musical career to the extent that he has even been denied a right to gospel.

“On five occasions, Police has stopped me from holding concerts. The first was when I was blocked from holding my concert at Namboole and then another one in Gulu and the most recent in Jinja. Even promoters at my One Love Busaabala Beach have been stopped from organizing concerts there,” Bobi Wine said.

In retaliation, Kadaga called on Gen Tumwine to respond to the matter in the absence of Internal Affairs minister Obiga Kania.

However, he (Tumwine) was ruled out of order when he said that what Bobi Wine is going through is simply an occupational hazard and that he should deal with it.

“Hon Kyagulanyi can bear me a witness. When he came to this Parliament I warned him on how he will balance politics and music….So what he is facing is just an occupation hazard,” Gen Tumwine said, before he was ruled out of order.

Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda has been tasked to respond to this matter extensively.
