A day to his return,Police has warned supporters and any other person against holding processions and rallies as Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine returns.
Early this week, Kyagulanyi announced he would be returning to Uganda to start from the US where he had travelled for specialized treatment.
Police spokesperson Emillian Kayima on Wednesday told journalists that they had learnt of ill motives by Kyagulanyi’s group but said they ought to follow the Public Order Management Act.
“We have got intelligence information of country wide mobilization of different groups of people who are being distributed with Red T-Shirts and posters calling upon them to participate in processions and assemblies to receive the Hon. MP,”Kayima said.
“No member of his family has worked out a mechanism for these intended processions and assemblies as provided for in the law.”
Flanked by AIGP Asuman Mugyenyi, the police director in charge of operations, Moses Kafeero, the Kampala Metropolitan Area police commander and Norman Musinga, the Kampala Metropolitan Traffic Police Commander, Kayima in a press conference where questions from journalists were not entertained said Bobi Wine, his supporters and family ought to adhere to police guidelines in regards to his return on Thursday.
“On his arrival, Hon.Kyagulanyi will be received at Entebbe International Airport by his immediate family only and will be availed security from the airport to his home.”
The Nile Post has learnt that like they did to Forum for Democratic Change and opposition strongman, Dr.Kizza Besigye in 2016, police will take Kyagulanyi straight to his home from Entebbe airport in a bid to avoid contact with his supporters.
The police spokesperson warned that any activity that entails a public gathering must be in conformity with the provisions of Public Order Management Act 2013.
“The Hon. MP is expected to comply with the traffic laws and regulations,”Kayima added.
In a video recording posted on his social media accounts on Tuesday, Bobi Wine said he would be returning to continue with the struggle for what he described as a better Uganda.
“I am coming back this Thursday and I encourage citizens to continue struggling for a better Uganda. The people we are scared of are actually very scared of us, “he said.
On Monday, government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo said the Kyadondo East legislator was free to return because no one had sent him away from Uganda.
“We don’t consider Bobi Wine’s absence as a much ado. We shall provide, as a government, the usual security and protection guarantees that we provide for all travelers and leaders of his level and if need be to be escorted to his destination,”Opondo told journalists at the Uganda Media Centre in Kampala.
