Live bullets, tear gas rock Kamwokya Ghetto as Free Bobi Wine protests take another twist

protests in Kamwokya

Protests have this morning broken out again in Kamwokya, a Kampala surburb.

This follows the arrest of Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine at Entebbe airport where he had gone for board a plane for better treatment in India.

Bobi wine was grabbed by security operatives, dragged in a military van and driven off to a government owned Mulago hospital based in Kiruddu along Salaama Road.

According to his wife, Barbie Kagulanyi said that the police violently abducted Bobi Wine from the airport, forced him into a police ambulance and is being driven to unknown destination.

Demonstrators in Kampala have now taken to the streets again following the dramatic re-arrest of Bobi Wine. Smoke from lit roadblocks on Old Kira Road could be seen billowing above Bobi Wine’s home in Kamwokya on Friday morning.
