We are not aware about Hon. Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi Wine’s on-going woes with police, the Electoral Commission (EC) has said.
This comes days after Police halted Kyagulanyi’s presidential consultation meeting at Pope Paul Memorial Center in Kampala.
According to the Police Spokesperson, Bobi Wine’s meeting was stopped on grounds that Kyagulanyi had failed to submit strategies like they had earlier agreed.
However speaking while appearing on NBS Morning Breeze Monday morning, EC spokesperson Jotham Taremwa said that they were not aware of Kyagulanyi’s woes since he was cleared by the EC.
“The only part for us was to guide him on what a consultation is all about so I don’t know what assistance an aspirant would be seeking from us. We are not aware and that has not come to our attention,” Taremwa said.
Taremwa added that Kyagulanyi and all presidential aspirants collaborate with police to be guided further.
“Being an aspirant does not place you above the normal. My view is, if you are an aspirant, sit with the police. When the EC okays you, it does not mean you overlook certain laws,” Taremwa said.
