“The first guy who opened hit me with a metal rod on the head, they wrapped me with blanket and hit me constantly.” – Bobi Wine Narrates Arrest
Yesterdays afternoon, Robert Kyagulanyi aka bobi wine was sat down and the singer recounted the experience that he went through during his arrest in Arua town part by part.However according to Med Kaggwa of Human Rights Commision, and Eddie Yawe(Brother to Bobi), the singer still had a clear memory on the events that preceded and proceeded his arrest.
Kyagulanyi tells us that on the fateful day, he had excused himself from the Arua procession, and he had decided to rush back to his hotel where he had been watching news. It is from the news that he learnt of the demise of his driver Yasin Kawuma, who had a bullet ‘tear’ through his chest while seated in his Tundra vehicle.
Bobi says that on hearing the news, he wanted to move out of his hotel room, but was adviced by his colleagues to stay locked away until the situation was manageable.
“He asked them to lock him inside the room, to restrain himself from going out, and he resumed following events via television. He said he started hearing doors being banged and broken open and after some time, it was his door they were kicking down,” Yawe said.
Bobi Wine narrates that specific officers attached to Museveni’s elite force (SFC) that he can identify if paraded, broke into the room, he put hands up…”and the first guy who opened hit me with a metal rod on the head. they wrapped me with blanket and hit me constantly.”
“They then told me, you are Bobi Wine, you thought we would never catch you?”
“They threw me on track and drove me around, I heard people speaking and I could notice it was like at a police.” He says later they threw him in a containment room, and poured on him cold cold water.
