Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has said Uganda police force is still silent on his upcoming Easter shows.
The singing MP told media on Tuesday that he wrote to police about the Easter Concert at One Love Beach in Busabala about a week ago.
He also has concerts in Arua, Gulu and Lira towns and wrote to police about their planning as required by the law under the Public Order Management Act [POMA].
“We asked for security. The Uganda police up to today has not responded to us. Our promoters and managers have gone to police but didn’t get any response,” Bobi told press.
“We want to let the world know what we have done our part as required by the law. We will go on with our concerts because they are not illegal.”
His first concert is on Easter Monday at One Love Beach in Busabala.
“We are not criminals; we haven’t committed any crimes against this government,” Bobi cried out.
He said they studied different things at school which haven’t worked for them and are now doing businesses to survive.
Bobi Wine said he met his singing partner Nubian Li at Makerere University. Nubian was supposed to become an accountant but failed.
To musicians, this is not politics, its about everyone’s rights, Bobi Wine appealed to fellow singers.
“Don’t stay silent. Speak out for our freedoms. This is our country. We don’t work for President Museveni. This is our country not his alone.”
Bobi also appealed to the Inspector General of Police [IGP] Okoth Ochola and his deputy Maj Gen Sabiiti Muzeeyi to stop violating human rights.
“To Ochola, Sabitti and your officers, we ask that you stop breaking the law because this country isn’t ours, you saw what happened in Egypt and Sudan. Time will come and you will regret your actions,” he warned.
