Bobi Wine

People Power Movement leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine last week released his presidential consultations programme which kicks off today Monday January 6, 2020 with a mega event at in Kyadondo East, where he represents in the August House.

“As you all know by now, we start nationwide consultations on Monday next week, beginning with Kyadondo East and then six districts in Northern Uganda,” he said on Saturday.

For the past months, Bobi Wine said his policy team of experts has been working on compressing his ideas into a policy document which he hopes to launch soon, but the question remains, will police keep law and order or they will antagonize?

“The reason why we did not release it earlier was because we deliberately want to include the views of the people of Uganda which we hope to get through these consultations.”

He added: “We are people power and we believe the people understand best what kind of country they would love to live in and leave behind for future generations.”

On Friday, Bobi Wine said he sent out teams to book venues in the seven districts where he intends to begin from, and deliver the relevant documents to the local authorities and the DPCs.

The specific districts of Northern Uganda are; Gulu District (Tuesday 7th Jan), Lira District (Wednesday 8th Jan), Adjumani District (Thursday 9th Jan), Yumbe District (Friday 10th Jan), Arua District (Saturday 11th Jan), and Zombo District (Sunday 12th Jan).

“We intend to reach all corners of Uganda, and our hope is that security agencies will not seek to interfere with us.”

Bobi said he has deliberately complied with all the laws, including those he disagrees with such as the Public Order Management Act.

He has further written to the IGP Okoth Ochola notifying him of the developments from the different districts and requested him to direct the police officers at different levels to comply with the law.
