Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has earlier in the day taken the feeder roads from Kibaale District to Hoima. As the Police and Army blocked the main roads. They did this to stop the convoy from passing by the populous areas and seal the National Unity Platform (NUP) Presidential Candidate. They we’re also blocked from campaigning in Kibaale district earlier in the day too.
So, because of this… the Campaign convoy used much longer time to reach Hoima than anticipated. The authorities blocked him from campaigning in Hoima as well. Outside his hotel in there sparking difficulties. This being at the Dream Hotel in Kinubi village in Hoima district. Where there is reported law enforcement from ISO, SFC, plain-clothed armed men and police officers. All enclosing the hotel. Some speculate in the arrest of Bobi Wine. It is hard to know.
As the cars of Bobi Wine hasn’t been allowed to the enter the hotel and the pictures surfacing from Hoima. Is at night with very little information. Ghetto TV have followed the convoy and shown it live through the day. But who knows if these reports has been chased away from the hotel.
Bobi Wine states:
“In Hoima, after the military and police blocked us, they trailed us up to the hotel at which we plan to send the night. Heavily armed military personnel have surrounded the hotel. Some are moving in a numberless military van. Some operatives are non-uniformed yet armed. They’ve assaulted journalists and chased them away from the hotel” (Bobi Wine, 25.11.2020).
There are unverified reports that the hotel rooms have been stormed and knocked by the armed law enforcement of various kind. That they have arrested Bobi Wine. However, that is yet known. The armed law enforcement of all kind of outfits has clearly besieged the place and taken the hideout. We can wonder under what warrant and law. Just like the law that Bobi Wine cannot drive on the main-roads as he campaigns the region.
So, we don’t know the whole situation and what is reason for all of the commotion. Why the army, police officers and other outfits are there. They are clearly interfering and intimidating. The authorities are also said to have blocked all roads around the Double Dream Guest House (Hotel). So, who knows what their plan is… other than shielding and pre-emptive striking at Bobi Wine.
This here is the rules and the game that the regime plays with the opposition. It is no middle-ground. Just impunity and injustice. In a manner, which shows no reason. Only police brutality and taking away the freedom from one man and all of his team. This is not new. Will follow and bring further updates as it comes. Peace.
