“Bobi Wine went to America and said that people should not come invest in Uganda. That means he is an enemy of progress in Uganda. In the 1960s, I was a member of DP but when I couldn’t say, ‘don’t build the Masaka-Kabale Road because I am not in the government, because that road is my road –it’s not for the government. When you go and tell foreigners that they should not come and invest in our country, you are waging war on our prosperity. So why then do you want to come and take advantage of that prosperity? (…) “That may be one of the reasons [for cancellation of Bobi Wine’s concerts] I suspect, I have not talked to the police in details” (Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on BBC News Africa, 18.10.2019).
It is now evident that the Uganda Police Force and the authorities has blocked a total of 156 concerts, which Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has tried to do. Also, in consideration the various of charges pinned on him. From being charged with treason, inciting violence and so-on. Like a common criminal not allowed to do his profession on the side of being a Member of Parliament. It would be like killing the cows and impounding, grabbing the land and expropriate the land to foreign investor to start ranching on one of the farms the President owns.
Because, what the state has done, is effectively stopping his other career and political messages through music. The have blocked him and his fellow artist to express themselves. There been all sorts of requirements, but the state has in the end blocked it.
If it is not a big enough venue, not enough toilets, not enough officers or the ability safeguard the venue in question. The Police Force will say that, as the artist and MP has to by law, notify the authorities and get rights to perform. This is what the laws are saying and he has complied to this.
Still, the state has blocked him and silenced him this way. It really shows how the state are using their power. Because, the state has an enemy and that is Bobi Wine. His now not allowed to pursuit his career, since he shouldn’t advantage of the prosperity of the nation.
Still, the President and his men can do that, all the time. The President can siphon, steal, land-grab or do whatever. Even spend the fortunes of the future, take out loans on the future and expect people to praise him for tarmacking roads.
Therefore, we know know the the enemy of the state. Even if it has been public knowledge for a while. Since, the MP and artist cannot move without getting into trouble. That is because the state are awaiting around the corner, if not they are trying to house-arrest him like other opposition leaders in the past. Peace.
