Bobi Wine Finds Himself In Trouble Once Again And Is Charged In Court

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine has been remanded to Luzira Prison until May 2, 2019 after being charged with disobedience of statutory duty, an offence he committed in July last year.

Mr Wine was arraigned at Buganda Road Court in Kampala on Monday alongside his brother Mr Fred Nyanzi Ssentamu, Mr David Lulue and Mr Edward Sebufu for holding an illegal protest against imposition of tax on social media networks.

He will return to court on Thursday for the mention of his case.

When asked in court whether he had something to say, here is what Bobi said:

When asked if he had anything to tell the court before he was detained, Mr Wine said: “Your honour thank you for this opportunity. I’m confident because indeed it’s not me on trial; It’s the court itself on trial. I have not committed any crime. I’m only here because I disagree with the political leadership of this country and in particular President Museveni. But my spirit is confident because I’m here not because I’ve stolen public funds or killed somebody. I’m glad that I’m here because I’m fighting for them, you (magistrate) and everybody in this country. I’m here for protesting against unfair taxation and injustice. So if I’m to go through this oppression and pain for the betterment of my country so be it. At least I know that history will absolve me.”

Ugandan police arrested Mr Wine on Monday, April 29, 2019, after he complied with a summons to appear before the Criminal Investigations Directorate.
