Last evening, Sunday 2 December, singer turned politician Bobi Wine real name Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi was supposed to perform for his fans in Gulu at Smiling Panda in a show themed ‘Kyarenga Extra’.
However, the show was cancelled by Police, according to the singer.
Bobi Wine has since revealed that he has no idea why police blocked his concert again explaining that they wrote to them three weeks back informing them of the show while at the same time requesting for security.
The legislator further narrates that his team complied with all the law but Police still stormed the venue and cut down all the banners and posters with no explanation; only claiming that they were simply following ‘orders from above’.
Bobi Wine has since apologized to his fans in Gulu promising that somehow he will be entertaining them soon after getting rid of what he termed as ‘injustice’.
“So yet again, our concert in Gulu has been blocked by the police! We wrote to them three weeks ago informing them of the show and requested them for security. We compiled with all the laws and invested a lot of resources preparing for the show. Today, the police showed up at the venue cutting all banners and other advertising material without giving any explanation. Police patrol vehicles have been moving around Gulu town, removing all the banners and posters! The promoters have been trying to call all responsible officers, and all they say is that they have ‘orders from above’ not to let me perform.
Dear brothers and sisters in Gulu, I was looking forward to having a good time with you tonight. Very soon it will be possible. I know that God willing, one day, we shall free ourselves from this mess and be able to enjoy ourselves in the new Uganda.
In the meantime, we shall stop at nothing in challenging this kind of injustice and gross violation of rights. We shall communicate to the nation about our next step.” Bobi Wine wrote on his Facebook page.
