Supporters of Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine have given police an ultimatum of seven days to rescind their decision to block his concerts or else they will instigate mass protests of the youth throughout the country.
Under the name “Fire Base Army” the supporters told journalists at Centenary Park on Saturday that by stopping Kyagulanyi from holding the concerts they are denying him his right to work.
“We still want police to politely tell the general public if an MP is not allowed to maintain his profession since this looks like selective justice since other MPs still perform and are not stopped a case in point is Hon Judith Babirye,” said Eddie Kayabula, the chairperson Fire Base Army.
On October 18, the Kampala Metropolitan Police commander, Mr Fred Mwesigwa, issued a directive to the managing director of Balunywa promotions limited, to desist from proceeding with Bobi Wine’s show in Mukono District.
The show was to be held at Coline Hotel Mukono and Balunywa promotions was seeking for security at the premises during the event.
“Unfortunately, we are not granting permission for the show because during the previous show at one love beach Busabala, he uttered words that were inciteful to the public and he is now under investigations,” the police statement reads.
Bobi Wine has since sued the Mwesigwa and the police force demanding Shs 300 million in lost income.
