Police has said that its operators and personnel from other sister security agencies shall not release former presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine from his residence until he denounces violence.
This was revealed by the Police spokesperson CP Fred Enanga on Tuesday while addressing the press about the continued security besiege at the home of Kyagulanyi in Magere, Kira Municipality, Wakiso District.
According to Enanga, “Hon. Kyagulanyi, as the president of the National Unity Platform (NUP), has not come out to denounce the plan of holding protests.”
He added that Kyagulanyi and his supporters must do away with plans of organizing mass protests “because Ugandans want a very peaceful aftermath of elections therefore as security, we cannot allow people’s lives and property to be destroyed in unlawful uprisings.”
So far, Hon. Kyagulanyi has spent seven days under preventive detention at his home in Magere and he claims that he has run out of food and other essential supplies yet he has an 18 month old baby in the house and no one is allowed to access him.
These allegations, however, were watered down by the law enforcement body saying that arrangements were made for Kyagulanyi to meet with his lawyers of Katana and Wameri but he refused to do as planned.
His lawyers proceeded to file an application of habeas corpus demanding a public official like a prison warden to deliver him to courts of law to have his case addressed.
“The judge at High Court gave us January 21, 2021 for application hearing,” said Anthony Wameri on Tuesday.
