Police has summoned Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu for interrogation at CID headquarters Kibuli for allegedly ‘turning a music concert into a political rally’.
In a letter to Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, the CID Commander for Kampala Metropolitan detective Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Johnson Olal, quoting section 27(a) of the Police Act, said the police is empowered to summon any person it believes has relevant or valuable information, exhibits or relevant documents to help in investigations.
“You are therefore required to appear at Media Crimes Department at CID headquarters today on 19th October 2017 to respond to allegations of inciting violence which is centrally to section 83 of the penal code act. Mr. Kyagulanyi is alleged to have committed the office on 15th October at one love beach Busabala Zone A, Makindye, Wakiso district,” Olal wrote in his letter to Kyagulanyi.
Since becoming MP, the musician-turned-politician has attracted the wrath of police, and recently the Kampala Metropolitan Commander Frank Mwesigwa stopped him from conducting a show shunned at Colline Hotel in Mukono that was slated for October 21, allegedly because MP Kyagulanyi had ‘talked politics’ at an earlier music show.
According to Mwesigwa, police had ‘agreed’ with Bobi Wine that the said show at Busabala beach ‘was going to be about music and not politics’.
However Bobi Wine, in a social media post, wrote that he would not censor himself because all his music is about change for good leadership.
