This comes due to excessive pressure mounted on government by Ugandans at home and those in diaspora as well as international communities including European Union and US Embassy in Kampala.
Today Uganda Media center released a video showing Bobi wine meeting with Jacob Oulanya conversing freely and very Healthy. According to analysts online the video is claimed to be edited ( Photoshop) and fake news intended to calm the Ugandans.
Earlier Gov’t spokes man Ofwon Opondo went on twitter to say that the planned visit of Oulanya will shade more light to claims that Bobi is dead or in immersive pain.

The government spokesperson further said their silence on #FreeBobiWine is purposely to crash the attributed rumours,
The political hubris being spread on social media, perhaps even instigated and funded by foreign sources including threats of violence will be curtailed by our able government, and will fail. Gov’t perceived laying low is purposely.
The government and other NRM MPs have been sitting idle and frowned ignorant on #FreeBobiWine campaign.
