“The DPC Nakasongola Patience Namara and a one OC Byaruhanga have blocked Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine from accessing a hotel which he earlier booked in Migyera” (Uganda Diaspora Eye, 26.11.2020)
Just as a long and terrible day on the campaign trail is over. The National Unity Platform who has been blocked from entering towns and campaign venues.
There has been reports that the Presidential Candidate and his team tried to get a place at any hotel in Migyera in Nakasongola District. However, the got blocked from doing so.
Just like I wondered yesterday. What laws are stopping Bobi Wine from riding his convoy on the main roads to Hoima. Which laws said he needed to travel on the feeder roads?
Also, what law is stopping him from participating and talking on Spice FM earlier in the day?
Is there a law and any legalities can be reasonable to stop Bobi Wine finding shelter and sleep on the road for the campaigns?
“On our way to Kyankwanzi via Hoima, all roads were blocked by police saying they had orders not to allow us through. We decided to spend the night in Migera but DPC Patience Namara and OC Byarugaba ordered all hotels not to host us. We’re now stuck and sleeping by the roadside” (Bobi Wine, 26.11.2020).
I know, the authorities cannot find any law, which is directly making it legal to block the roads for Bobi Wine and his team. Neither, can there be any wisdom in the blocking him for accessing and sleeping in hotels.
I wonder, what sort of law does the DPC and OC have and how can they defend doing this? Since, I doubt there is any sort of justice behind this. This is just more impunity and injustice.
The authorities are really foolish with this. Letting a Presidential Candidate sleep roadside. Block the roads so he can travel across the Republic and also blocking all his engagements. They stops his radio shows and stop his venues.
There is nothing in his way that is allowed. That is evident. They are now doing everything, but arresting him. Peace.
