State Asks Military Court to Withdraw Charges Against Bobi Wine

The state has asked the General Court Martial in Gulu to drop charges of unlawful possession of fire arms and ammunition against Kyaddondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.

The military prosecution led by Major Raphael Magyezi, told court on Thursday morning they had lost interest in the case.

Prosecution asked that Bobi be surrendered to Uganda Police to be charged with treason.

“We ask that proceedings before this court be terminated and the accused person to be handed over to the police,” said Magyezi.

The reason behind the military’s decision to hand over Bobi to police remains unclear.

But President Museveni has in several statements cast doubt about Bobi’s alleged possession of the weapons as earlier alleged by the state.

Bobi’s lawyer, Medard Ssegona described the prosecution’s decision to drop the charges as a “relief.”

The lawyer said the “charges in the first place should not have been brought against him as we had consistently objected. ”
