Presidential Hopeful Robert Kyagulanyi Bobi Wine has Wednesday met with officials of the Electoral Commission to vent his frustration with the Uganda security forces who have foiled may of his campaign meetings around the country.
Bobi Wine who was supposed to campaign in Jinja today, took the day off to meet with EC Chairman Justice Simon Byabakama at the Commission offices in Kampala.
He was flanked by a team of his NUP Party officials including Secretary General Lewis Rubongoya, the party lawyers and a few parliamentary flag bearers.
He arrived at the commission a few minutes past 11am with no procession.
The Electoral Commission said Bobi Wine and his team had “requested to meet the Returning Officer and Chairperson/Electoral Commission, and members of the Commission, today, Wednesday 2nd December 2020, to make a presentation on issues concerning the conduct of campaigns for Presidential Elections.”
During the meeting, Bobi Wine presented photographic evidence of Police and the Military using a lot of force to disperse his supporters, many of whom have been severely injured and others lost lives.
These also included photos of his damaged car which was reportedly shot at yesterday, as well graphic images of injured supporters.
Bobi Wine’s team and the electoral commission officials are expected to address press later this afternoon before proceeding to Manafwa to carry on with his campaign
