Police has allowed Kyadondo East singing MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine to hold his Easter holiday music shows.
This is according to an April 15 letter by the police director of operations, Asuman Mugenyi.
The letter addressed to Bobi Wine’s promoters Abitex management asks for the number of revellers for each of the events, measures put in place for crowd control and proposed traffic management.
“Police has taken note of your intended events, however for comprehensive security planning, there is need for the following information from you the organisers; clearances to use the intended venue, detailed programme for each activity and lists of performers at each venue,” Mugenyi wrote.
Bobi Wine’s Easter Monday show is at his One Love Beach in Busabala, Wakiso District.
He will then perform in Lira on May 3, Arua on May 4 and Gulu on May 5.
Bobi Wine who has not yet reacted to the police go—ahead managed to talk about the age limit appeal which failed in Supreme Court on Thursday allowing Museveni to contest in 2021 presidential elections.
He said this year’s Good Friday comes at a time when persecution of political activists in Uganda is at its peak. Dr. Stella Nyanzi is still incarcerated atLuzira prison.
“Our brother Sam Mugumya is still detained in the DRC. Many People Power activists are still languishing in jail. Some of our supporters in Mbarara are still in hospital, having been brutalized a few days ago as they celebrated our victory in the guild elections at Mbarara University.”
He said police continues to foil FDC activities across the country. “Together with colleagues, we continue to face illegal treason charges.”
He said to top it up, yesterday the Supreme Court sought to permit the continuation of this state of affairs by sanctioning Museveni’s life presidency project.
“What Good Friday teaches us is that suffering never has the last word. Today is Good Friday, but Sunday will be Easter- a day of resurrection.”
He said Good Friday teaches Ugandans to be courageous in the face of intimidation, steadfast in the face of betrayals, and firm in the face of persecution- well knowing that in the end, good will defeat evil.
