Bobi Wine Meets Besigye on How to Defeat NRM

Leading opposition figures Dr. Kiiza Besigye and Kyadondo East’s Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu have meet in bid to draw a way forward on how to overthrow the ruling party.

The meeting happened at Bobi Wine’s home in Magere Wakiso district on Friday evening where they also welcomed him back from prison.

“Since all of us have been visitors of Luzira prison at different times in our struggle for a free Uganda, we had a good time reminiscing about our experiences at the prison.” Bobi Wine said.

According to Bobi Wine, they had a very good conversation about where the people’s struggle for liberation stands, and what they must do together to complete the task ahead.

“What we all agree about is that Museveni’s regime of blood and national shame has never been as vulnerable, weak and utterly exposed as it is today. We only need to mobilise our people for the final push and victory will be guaranteed.” Bobi Wine added.

Former presidential aspirant Dr. Kizza Besigye was accompanied by other people’s government officials like Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, and Hon. Betty Nambooze among others.

The Kyarenga singer was arrested and charged with offence of disobedience of statutory duty for allegedly held a public meeting at City Square on July 11th 2018 without giving notice to any authorized officer who would ensure that all participants of his meeting are unarmed and peaceful.

Prosecution contends that the actions of Bobi Wine were contrary to sections 5 and 10 of the public Order Management Act of 2013. He allegedly held the unlawful meeting as he was opposing the then newly introduced OTT tax.

Bobi wine was however released on bail by Buganda Road court on Thursday afternoon and ordered to pay a cash bail of 10 million shillings and each of his sureties ordered to execute a non-court bond of 10 million shillings.

Court also barred Bobi Wine from holding unlawful demonstrations that would lead to cancellation of his bail and case fixed for hearing on May 23rd of this year.

Earlier State had asked Buganda road Court grade one magistrate Esther Nahirya not to grant bail Bobi Wine saying sureties were not substantial.
