General David Sejusa (aka Tinyefuza) has described Bobi Wine as Bobi Wine as a hero.
In a tweet, the controversial former spy chief noted ‘‘Bobi wine represents old struggle between Art and Tyranny.’’
Sejusa says dictators hate and fear artists. Bobi music defies media censorship and moves faster.
Bobi Wine has emerged as a serious opposition figure. He pulls crowds, his posts go viral, something that could have alarmed the authorities.
Bobi Wine is one of the opposition politicians opposed to the proposal to amend Article 102 (b) of the Constitution to lift the presidential age limit.
Last week, Police stopped Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine from performing at live music concerts until investigations into his conduct at recent events are completed. The directive was issued by Kampala Metropolitan Police commander Frank Mwesigwa
“Unfortunately we are not granting permission for the show because during the previous show at One Love Beach Busabala, he uttered words that are incitful (sic) to the public and he is now under investigations,” Mr Mwesigwa’s October 19 response to Balunywa Promotions Ltd, reads in part.
Mwesigwa was responding to a request by Balunywa Promotions Ltd, an events company, seeking for security ahead of Bobi Wine’s planned show at Colline Hotel in Mukono.
Bobi Wine says police is overstepping on his rights as a Ugandan adding that he is would contest the order. Indeed, he has gone ahead to sue police demanding 300million.
