Earlier Police issued security guidelines for the return of Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu a.k.a Bobi Wine from the U.S, to which the pop star who is in Amsterdam enroute to Uganda reacted by vowing to defy the directives.
“I just saw the Uganda Police spokesman Emilian Kayima and other senior police officers announcing that they will only allow my immediate family members to receive me from Entebbe Airport. They also said they will escort me to my home!! Why do these police officers allow themselves to descend so low” Bobi Wine said in a statement he shared on his social media platforms on Wednesday afternoon.
“They now want to decide who picks me and where I go upon arrival? Well, for your information, no single family member will receive me at the airport, I will find them home because I know where home is! I will be received by friends, colleague leaders and artistes. I will then go and see my sick grandmother briefly at Najjanankumbi from where I will head to Kamwokya for lunch with my family (brothers and sisters) before I go to my home in Magere,” noted Bobi Wine.
Earlier, police spokesperson, Mr Emilian Kayima told journalists in Kampala that on his arrival at Entebbe International Airport on Thursday, the MP will be received by his immediate family and that he will be availed security from the airport to his home. He also said, he expected the Hon. MP to comply with the traffic laws and regulations.
“Police will further ensure law and order for all road users. There shall be no unlawful rallies, processions and assemblies. Any activity that entails a public gathering must be in conformity with the provisions of Public Order Management Act (POMA),” added SSP Kayima.
However, Hon Kyagulanyi responded saying: “I am a free Ugandan with the right to move freely in my country. The police has no business telling me who receives me and who cannot or where I go and where I cannot. This impunity must stop now. Wama see you friends tomorrow.”
