Police Explains Why They arrested Bobi wine and Amuriat

Police has said the arrest of National Unity Platform’s Robert Kyagulanyi also known as Bobi Wine and Forum for Democratic Change’s Patrick Amuriat was inevitable.

According to police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, “Amuriat blatantly defied the traffic flow plan agreed upon from his home in Najjera to Kyambogo. He instead opted to proceed to Najjanankumbi to lead a delegation of over 2000 supporters in total disregard of the Electoral and Health SOPs. He, however, was safely transported to Kyambogo,”

“After his successful nomination, Bobi wine had similar plans of holding illegal processions from Kyambogo to Kamwokya NUP Headquarters which we countered due to its negative impact on the flow of traffic, public safety and public order. He was forcefully removed from his vehicle, and a fracas ensued in the process of transferring him to the Police vehicle,” Enanga said.

Enanga condemned the tactics used by the two opposition figures, saying such acts of defiance only bring greater violence such as lawlessness and violence against law enforcement and also encourages the spread of the coronavirus.

He warned all individual actors and groups that intend to use political processions and unregulated rallies, to show their level of broad public support should stop and instead adopt better campaign strategies in line with the Electoral Commission and Ministry of Health guidelines against Covid-19.
