IGP Ochola Takes off From Office as Bobi Wine Storms Naguru to Seek Explanation to Cancellation of His Music Shows

Kyandodo East Member of Parliament Robert Sentamu Kyagulanyi yesterday morning stormed Uganda Police Force Headquarters in Naguru Kampala to meet the Inspector General of Police Okoth Ochola over the cancellation of his music shows and violation of his economic rights.

However in disgrace IGP Ochola failed to present himself after having lied to the police receptionists to ask Bobi Wine to wait for a little while. Bobi Wine Wrote Full Situation at the Head quarters as it reads below.

“Earlier today I went with a team of lawyers and our music promoters to the police headquarters in Naguru. I went to personally meet the Inspector General of Police and protest against the persistent blocking of my music shows with impunity.

We sought to deliver this letter to him and ask for answers from the head of the police. This decision came after my promoters and music manager have been tossed up and down whenever they go to follow up on our letters seeking clearance of the shows.

Well, no one had answers. They were evidently in panic and asked us to sit in the boardroom and wait for a few minutes! We waited for three hours after which the director of operations Asuman Mugyenyi came in to say that the IGP was not present. It will be recalled that when our shows were blocked the last time, we sought to speak to him and he equally evaded us.

As expected, Asuman didn’t have any answers. By his own admission, he told us that the questions we were asking him were beyond him! He however told us that he had been sent by his bosses to tell us that the shows, including the one which was supposed to take place today could not proceed.

We reminded him that we had written to them more than three weeks ago about these shows, but again he had no answer! He apologised for blocking the show in Gulu, but yet again, he had no answer. Sadly, the promoter who had organised the show today, Sarah Nasuuna, one of the most hard working women I know, was hit by high blood pressure on being told she could not proceed with the show tonight even when she had obtained the requisite clearance and spent a lot of resources trying to make the show possible. She collapsed and could barely move or speak. She was rushed to hospital. As she lay on the ground gasping for breath, I could not help but imagine about the struggles of the common person in this country.

The poor lady is trying so hard to make ends meet. She dared venture into an industry dominated by men. Instead of being supported by the government, the government is frustrating her to the point of near death! Her story represents many, many Ugandans in their different trades.

As I said a few days ago, this was only the first step in challenging this kind of impunity. We shall stop at nothing in seeking justice. We shall stop at nothing in trying to put an end to this mess. Uganda is for all of us. We shall CERTAINLY overcome.
