Kyadondo EastCounty member of parliament Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu popularly known as Bobi Wine has been summoned to Police Criminal Investigation Department (CID) following his ongoing house arrest resulting from fracas at his One Love Beach, Busaabala.
Police on Monday blocked Bobi Wine from accessing his private businesses and later arrested him for defying police guidelines over his Kyarenga Extra Concert which was later blocked by police.
While blocking his concert, police urged that the previous Kyarenga concerts had poor track records that was characterized by several incidents, related to public nuisance due to overcrowding, thefts, violation of traffic rules and various misconducts, which were not only a breach of law, but also a danger to the revelers and the lives of other members of the community.
Lwemiyaga county member of parliament Hon Theodore Ssekikubo has on Wednesday tasked Internal Affairs Minister Obiga Kania to clarify if Kyagulanyi has been charged and the charges against him.
In response Kania told the house that Bobi Wine is still a free citizen but within the confinements of his home.
“The Police is still at Hon Kyagulanyi’s home who will make a statement at the police tomorrow over a range of charges, and it is improper to make a statement,” Kania said.
He added: “Police says Hon Kyagulanyi has committed some crimes, so he has been summoned to make a statement at the CID and because the Police are preferring charges against him, I am unable to make a statement beyond this.”
Bobi Wine was confined at his home after announcing that he would stage a peaceful demonstration against police brutality in the country.
