“Work is a necessity for man. Man invented the alarm clock” – Pablo Picasso
We now after a few days knows the verdict of the house-arrest and the charges put on Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. Whose been in house-arrest since 22nd April 2019 or Easter Monday. As he had scheduled a Press Conference on his property, as the state had barred and blocked him from holding his Kyarenga Extra Concert there later that day.
However, the Police Force violently took him from his Toyota Land Cruiser and also used water-canons, and tear-gas to get people away from the convoy of the politician/musicians. That is not seen as illegal or as a criminal affair. As they are the law-enforcement is allowed to use brute force and take people away. Even when there is no warrant or legal justification to do so.
Now, days after, the Police Force have sent a letter to Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga, saying the reasons for his arrest. They claim that the MP was inciting violence and unlawful gathering. This is common crimes in Uganda, they are soon more common than pickpocketing and theft. Since, the Police Force issues these alleged crimes as often, that its as common as the sky-rocketing rate between the shilling and the US Dollar.
It is hard to see the MP to incite violence, as he was driving his car to his property. If it is illegal to gather on his own property too. Than, surely we should be worried about the gatherings in the compound in Wakiso District too. Surely, Barbie should be afraid of even meeting with her husband now. Since, just to meet and greet him could be seen as a criminal offence. Maybe even drive home to Magere could be seen as unlawful gathering. Who knows? Because, if your someone who challenge the throne, they will pin whatever on you.
This is just another method of the NRM and IGP Okoth-Ochola to misuse power. In the means of silencing a big critic. This time being Bobi Wine, next time, who knows, but could be anyone. Because, if your someone who goes against the President and his click. Expect the vile force of the Police Force to pin your some charges and have to answer for it. Even if it doesn’t stick in court or have the evidence. That is what they do. Peace.
