Uganda: Bobi Wine Sued The Administration For The Cancelation Of His Music Shows A Year Ago


The High court in Kampala has requested composed entries for a situation in which Kyaddondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine sued the administration for the cancelation of his music shows a year ago.

Bobi Wine dragged the administration to court, together with previous Kampala Metropolitan Police officer Frank Mwesigwa after the cancelation of shows he had composed a long time in the wake of taking promise as individual from parliament in July a year ago. The shows had been sorted out in parts of Kampala, Mukono, Kasese, Kiryandongo and Kamuli.

As indicated by a letter wrote by Mwesigwa, the shows in the Kampala were wiped out to prevent the official from affecting savagery. He had effectively run an enormously went to indicate named ‘Specioza wankyaaya’ at his One Love shoreline in Busabala when resulting shows for the long stretch of October were canceled.

The shows had been organized at the height of a debate to lift the cap on the presidential age from the constitution. Kyagulanyi, then a new entrant in parliament, was among a team of opposition legislators who led a protest against the amendment, triggering fists and verbal exchanges later on the floor of parliament. He was later suspended by the speaker of parliament for misconduct.

Mwesigwa also accused Bobi Wine of failing to differentiate between Bobi Wine the musician and Robert Kyagulanyi the legislator.

“We have noticed that Bobi Wine has been turning into Hon. Kyagulanyi to make political statements at music shows, that is not what we agreed upon”, Mwesigwa said.

Kyagulanyi later dragged the government to court seeking a payment of Shs 300 million as compensation for lost income and his freedom which had been restricted through police actions.

Kyagulanyi also wants the court to issue an order prohibiting police from violating his freedom of movement and allow him to stage his shows without any hindrance.

However, the case has dragged on since October 2017 due to the failure by the attorney general to honour court summons. Yesterday, High court judge Henrietta Wolayo told the parties in the case to make written submissions and responses on the case within two weeks.

Written submissions imply that the parties do not appear in person but send material to the judge, including relevant documents and legal arguments that explain why the case should be decided in their favour.
