The High Court has issued an order directing police and the military to vacate Hon Ssentamu Robert Kyagulanyi’s alias Bobi Wine premises in Magere.
This has been revealed by the National Unity Platform (NUP) General Secretary Mr. Lewis David Rubongoya.
According to Rubongoya, Court noted that the indefinite confinement of Kyagulanyi at his home is unlawful and unconstitutional.
It should be noted that since elections conducted on 14th January 2021, Police and officers from the Uganda People’s Defense Forces have had Bobi Wine’s home sealed off from public and other visitors.
Bobi Wine, was declared runner-up by the Electoral Commission in last week’s presidential election, with 34.8% of the vote, behind President Yoweri Museveni, who it said got 58.6%. Bobi Wine and his National Unity Platform (NUP) party have alleged fraud.
Security personnel were also preventing people from accessing Bobi Wine despite him having reported that his family has run out of basic needs, including food. On 18 January, the security personnel stationed outside his house prevented the US Ambassador Natalie Brown from visiting Kyagulanyi’s residence, where she had gone to check on his health and safety, according to a statement issued by the US Embassy in Uganda on 18 January.
