The main agenda of the meeting which ended at 2am to do with a potential political merger between Gen Muntu’s FDC faction and hon Bobi Wine’s pressure group called People Power Movement.
Whereas Senyonyi still works at NTV where insiders say his employers are becoming concerned with his visibility in the anti-M7 political activities, Senyonyi has lately not disguised his readiness to politically partner with the Kyaddondo East MP.
Senyonyi was on Thursday dispatched by Bugiri municipality member of parliament to drive to Entebbe International Airport a long side Nubian Li to drive Bobi to Kampala. The decision was made after Eddie Yawe, who initially was to drive Bobi, got arrested on his way to Entebbe.
It was expected police would relent and let Bobi have a procession to Kampala which never happened. Senyonyi was instead arrested along with Nubian Li as they drove into Entebbe town. Earlier on Senyonyi had joined Mr. Wine to stage a demonstration against the introduction of OTT tax on the streets of Kampala.
