Police in Greater Masaka Region have Tuesday morning come out to refute allegations that it has been stopping discotheques and bar owners from playing Bobi Wine songs for their revelers.
Reports have been making rounds in the region that security operatives move around arresting disco jockeys who have been insisting on playing the artist turned politician tunes.
In a statement by Greater Masaka Police Spokesman SP Lameck Kigozi, he said “This is not true and has never happened anywhere in the region.”
He pointed out that “ The authors of this information are known political actors and commentators whose intention is to smear and tarnish police image in the region.”
He however warned that police will not hesitate to act in accordance with the law where such political fanatics pose a threat to public order.
Since this year began, there has been a brewing public opinion and debate about the political and music carrier of Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.
The musical legislator released a new Song titled “Tuliyambala Engule” literally meaning that we shall wear the crown which has attracted mixed reactions from the public, political actors as well as religious leaders.
Some religious leaders such pastors Martin Sempa of Makerere revival church have accused Bobi Wine of wrongfully using a gospel song.
