As we knew yesterday, that the concert scheduled today on the One Love Beach at Busabala, or the Kyarenga Extra Concert was blocked. Early this morning the Police Force had put up road-blocks and massive amount of police officers at the venue. They didn’t have the manpower for the concert to be held, but enough to close-off the venue. Shows the priority of the state.
In that manner, as they have blocked the up-coming Kyarenga Concerts as well, as the one tonight. The man behind it, Roberty Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, the MP and singer was trying to access his property and hold a press conference there. However, the authorities are in acceptance mode.
The road-block was put in place as the convoy of Bobi Wine was passing to his property. However, the Police Force broke a window on his car, forcefully arrested him and even threw tear-gas at him. The Police did the same at the public and the crowds around the car. They used water-canons on the public, as well as tear-gas, also using live-bullets.
Bobi Wine wasn’t the only arrested today, also his promoters Andrew Mukasa and Abbey Musinguzi were taken in custody. At this point of time, we don’t know where they are detained. The same can be said about Francis Zaake MP. Whose also was arrested as he was supposed to go there too. Nubian Li is the only one who walked away without being arrested.
We know after all the fuzz, the Police have driven Bobi Wine directly to his home in Magere. So, that he cannot address the public or be at his other property. Because, that is decided from high above.
Surely, this was well planned manoeuvrer to stop it from ever happening. As they were there from early on today and had all equipment, manpower and the means to stop it. They knew that Bobi Wine and friends could try to access his own land. Still, they wouldn’t let him. Even as they had already blocked the event from happening through letters.
Therefore, the actions was in ordinary fashion of the Police Force. With violence and arrests. This is just what they do. Pre-emptive strikes and attacks on the public. That is just what they do. The Police Force use all means to silence the opposition. They have done it again and surely can report giddy to Okello House. That they have saluted Bosco with a mission accomplished. Peace.
