Bobi Wine Taken to Court, Faces Additional Charges

Police Monday afternoon dragged Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi to Buganda Road Court after detaining him briefly at Nagalama Police station.

The MP was arrested earlier in the morning in Karerwe near the Mulago junction on his way from his home in Magere.

He was reportedly heading to CIID Headquarters in Kibuli where he was supposed to appear as directed by police following his release from house arrest.

Bobi Wine, Police says, was arrested for trying to incite violence.

At the time of his arrest, hundreds of his supporters were swarming his vehicle, forming a large procession and blocking traffic.

Police spokesman Fred Enanga in a statement says the MP had “shown blatant disregard for the law.”

“He faces additional charges of holding an illegal assembly and procession, after he was accused of organizing his supporters to escort him along the way,” Enanga said.

“He was transferred to Nagalama, where his case file is being processed for perusal and probable court action.”
