Bobi Wine’s bullet-proof car has arrived at Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) offices in Nakawa, Kampala for tax re-verification.
The car was delivered Friday afternoon following a court order authorising URA to re-assess it.
In an April 8 letter to National Unity Platform (NUP) leader, URA demanded that he presents the bullet-proof car today.
The latest directive followed a recent ruling of the High Court in Kampala in which the judge dismissed Bobi Wine application that sought to block the said tax re-evaluation of his car.
“Further reference is made to our earlier communication to your client Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert to voluntarily deliver motor vehicle, Toyota Land Cruiser, UBJ 667F to URA for re-evaluation exercise. You subsequently, sued URA seeking orders to stop going ahead to re-verify the said motor vehicle and your application seeking the said orders was dismissed on the 6th April, 2021,” the URA letter reads in part.
The letter was addressed to Bobi Wine lawyers of Wameli and Company Advocates.
The letter adds: “In light of the court ruling, we reiterate our earlier request to present the said motor vehicle to URA Nakawa inland port for re-verification exercise in the presence of your appointed agent not later than Friday, 9th April, 2021 at 9 O’clock without fail.”
The letter was written by Acting Commissioner of Customs, Asadu Kigozi Kisitu.
