Tomorrow as Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine are returning to Uganda. The Uganda People’s Defence Force and Uganda Police Force are preparing for his return. There are report of road-blocks put up from Kampala on Entebbe Road and dozens inside in Entebbe town as well. There been deployment all around, as the Security Organizations are prepared and ensuring they can contain the masses of people cheering for Bobi Wine’s return.
We know, the authorities are alerted as the Media Houses are warned to live broadcast the return of Bobi Wine. The Uganda Communications Commission called the media houses directing them not to do it. This shows how they want to silence dissidents.
They are already on the streets with road-blocks like the grandest die-hard terrorist was returning, like the biggest human rights violator came back to the Republic. They are borderline crazy, as he is an MP and a voice for the poor and the youths. This shows the weakness of the state, as the President are still home in Entebbe ordering the shut-down and such. It is convenient, that the Parliament is suspended and the Judiciary are having a break this Friday. Certainly, this will not stop the needed facilitation of possible arrest and house-arrest of Bobi Wine. You know the UPDF is serious, when 5 Trucks loaded with soldiers have left Makindye Military Barracks in advance of tomorrow.
Bobi Wine are already in trouble as it is, as the Police was giving him guidelines and would “escort” him home. Which means whisking away in a van, possible day arrest and more humiliation before dumped at his home. If not, they will keep him and use the Preventative Arrest for everything it is worth. While the ones showing up and being beaten by the Police or arrested by Authorities will be taken into custody for inciting violence or breaking the Public Order Management Act (POMA). All of this is known use of law by the Security Organizations in Uganda. We can anticipate mambas in the streets and soldiers bouncing between the main streets to ensure calm and intimidation at high level. As Bobi Wine is supposed to cross Kampala into Kasangati. Make sure that his plans to visit family will not be kept, as the authorities will not accept doing that. As the public might roar, as the Kamwokya have already rioted in his honor.
There will be more road-blocks and the police plans to check anyone passing to Entebbe are not wearing or having “People Power” T-Shirts, as the processions and welcoming him tomorrow. If they wasn’t fearing Bobi Wine. They wouldn’t act like this and make everyone a suspect who crosses into the roads towards Entebbe today and tonight. We should be worried about possible stray-bullets and deaths of innocents, the sinister activities of the police and detaining of opposition leaders as they would meet and greet if they could. But we know that Kizza Besigye will be picked up, Erias Lukwago house-arrested and Ingrid Turinawe too in jeopardy. While other might follow suit too, as Asuman Basalirwa or Kassiano Wadri.
Well, we could foresee this, the NRM and Museveni are always ordering the army when they needed this things fixed. Now they will do what they can to control, the none problem Bobi Wine is clearly haunting them and they are now going all out to silence him. Peace.
