Security Friday blocked Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine from reaching Kapchorwa and Kween towns.
According to Bobi Wine, in Kapchorwa, the police closed the roads and blocked them from reaching the town.
“Even when a lot of tear gas was fired at us, the people of Kapchorwa spoke loud and clear.”
Residents were photographed climbing hills and standing on rocks do see and wave at Bobi Wine’s entourage.
The same situation happened at his last rally in Kween.
“Even if we were illegally blocked from proceeding to Kween district by the police, am sure the message of liberation will remain vibrating all through Sebei region.”
Amidst unspeakable police brutality, teargas, live bullets and intimidation, the people of KAPCHORWA and KWEEN braved and expressed their commitment to our struggle, he noted.
Calls off trail
The news of the passing of Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata, a senior citizen and renowned Muslim leader, shocked Bobi and his camp.
“As the National Unity Platform, we extend sympathies to his family and all Ugandans who are affected by this tragedy.”
Bobi Wine was supposed to be in Bulambuli, Bukedea and Ngora with his message of freedom on Saturday.
“However, in light of the untimely passing of our esteemed elder Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata, we are rescheduling this program to be able to mourn with his family and loved ones.”
“What a sad day for me!
What a sad day for the Muslim fraternity!
What a sad day for our country!
I am still lost for words. It is difficult to come to terms with the fact that you are no longer in our midst, but that is life. From Allah (SWT) we come, and to Allah (SWT) we return.”
