Court allows URA to take Bobi Wine’s armored car for re-inspection

1 Mins read


High Court Judge Justice Emmanuel Baguma has declined to grant the temporary injunction against Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) following an application by Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine seeking for an injunction against URA. He has dismissed the application as improper.

According to Baguma, Kyagulanyi has not presented evidence to show that the re-calling of the said motor vehicle would cause him an irreparable injury which cannot be compensated by an award of damages.

He added that the Court was not satisfied with Kyagulanyi’s claim that his main worry or concern not to take back the said vehicle for re_verification was that it is his main means of transport and his personal security.

URA can now go ahead to impound and re-examine his armoured Toyota Land Cruiser vehicle.

Bobi Wine unveiled his car earlier this year a few weeks after the January polls and it immediately became the talk of town. URA came out and revealed that the Toyota Land Cruiser UBJ 667F was declared to customs as an ordinary car and was charged Shs88million. Meaning that as an armored car , the car was undervalued at Shs157,925,502.
