Teargas waiting for revellers at Bobi Wine show, vows police

Police spokesperson Emilian Kayima

Uganda police force has vowed to disperse revellers who show up for Kyadondo East singing MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine’s concert.

Bobi Wine said this morning that UPDF soldiers and over policemen had cordoned off his premises at One Love Beach in a move to block his ‘Ye Sebo Busabaala’ concert hosted every December 26, Boxing Day.

Police spokesperson, SSP Emilian Kayima, when asked about the show on NBS television Wednesday morning, said:

“I’m not sure about the One Love beach Busabaala concert being among those that are cleared to be given security. As far as I’m aware, I don’t think the concert will happen unless it was cleared this morning.”

Kayima said if Bobi Wine hasn’t written to police about his concert, that’s not “my issue because if he writes, we shall police his concert”.

Kayima said, however, he doesn’t know if anyone was arrested or the place being cordoned off.

“We shall be at Busabaala beach to disperse revellers because we shall be protecting them. As far as I’m concerned, this concert wasn’t cleared because the first things weren’t done.”

Kayima, on the other hand, said the Kiwatule is confirmed and cleared, police is working with them because they fulfilled all the requirements.

Bobi Wine is also a politician and that could be the other angle that always comes in as opposed to other musicians, Kayima argued.

He said the only problem in this country is that some people fly with the wind.

“Those who pay for the One Love beach Busabaala concert will know who to hold liable when it doesn’t happen.”

Stolen police bus and Christmas

Meanwhile, Kayima congratulated Ugandans for going through Christmas peacefully.

“Prior to Christmas, we had issues on the road and unfortunately people lost their lives.”

He said many people went to church which is very good but many times, these very people who pray during day do different things at night but yesterday, the reports were good.

“As for the missing bus, I don’t know who leaked that story because it was police internal communication.”

He added: “What we know and what Ugandans know is that some abuses are occasioned, the bus driver was given police duty, he signed out but instead went elsewhere.”

According to Kayima, the driver Geoffrey Mwase was found in Mityana but he has been apprehended.
