Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi and his colleagues were released from police cells deep in the night Monday following their arrest from Gayaza town.
“As usual, these cowards have released us in the deep of the night,” he said while posing outside Naggalama Police Station with his fellow detainees.
“These illegal injustices only make us stronger, but most importantly reveal to us how scared the regime is of we the people.”
Bobi Wine said the arrest has made him stronger and thanked his supporters for standing with him.
The legislator’s legal teams and other leaders had followed him both at Kasangati and Naggalama police stations demanding for his release from unlawful detention.
“Hon. Kyagulanyi sends you revolutionary greetings and thanks all of you citizens who put up resistance and made it clear that this impunity will not go on much longer,” his social media handler said.
Police spokesperson, CP Fred Enanga, said Bobi Wine defied the procedures in the POMA, and went on to hold an illegal assembly and procession after the attempt to force his way to the open venue.
He was cautioned in vain and later arrested together with Hon. Latif Ssebagala and Hon Asuman Basalirwa and 13 other boda boda riders who were engaging in criminal behaviour.
“We urge Hon Robert Kyagulanyi to keep their activities within the law and avoid using consultations as a tool of upfront campaigns. We hope that we shall jointly coordinate and cooperate with the organizers.”
It is not yet clear what they were charged with. What is clear is that his first presidential consultative meeting was foiled by security.
