Musician turned legislator, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine spent the most productive part of Wednesday morning in running battles with police in down town Kampala amid social media and mobile money tax protests.
Bobi Wine, who was in company of his brother Fred (Chairman) Nyanzi, journalist Raymond Mujuni who is attached to Next Media, Musician Alex Bagonza alias A Pass and Hillary Kiyaga alias Dr. Hilderman among others, started their protest in Kampala down town before colliding with police as they made their way to city square.
“People power. Our power” chants would later fill the space as police tried to block the group, arresting some and other, including the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament survived arrest by a whisker as the masses over powered police to help him run and hide in Kiyembe.
After minutes of unsuccessful search in buildings, toilets and shops, police suspended the operation and waited on the out skirts of Kiyembe zone to have Bobi Wine arrested once he re surfaces.
As the operatives waited for the resurface of Bobi Wine who they thought to be donning a red t-shirt, the Bikwasse Kyagulanyi singer resurfaced in rather different colours. A dark blue themed jacket and a black cape as a way of confusing the police.
Indeed, he left them stunned as he successfully jumped on a motor cycle and made his way to the parliament un noticed. He is now on a hunt for the “brother” who donated the said outfit.
If his verified social media platforms are anything to go by, Bobi Wine saluted the Samaritan and launched the search.
” To the brother who I met in town (kiyembe) and facilitated me with his jacket and cape so I could find my way to parliament disguised, I salute you. I am looking for you,” The legislator said in a tweet.
Within minutes of his post, Bobi Wine updated his audience when the youth who gave him the outfit showed up at parliament.
“I have finally found the brother. So young, so patriotic and so fearless. Thank you Mugalu John for playing your part in the struggle. With young people like you, this generation will surely achieve liberation in our lifetime,” he said.
