Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has been banned from performing at live music concerts until investigations into his conduct at recent events are completed.
The directive has been issued by Kampala Metropolitan Police commander, Mr Frank Mwesigwa
Mr Mwesigwa was responding to a request by Balunywa Promotions Ltd, an events company, to get police security ahead of Bobi Wine’s planned show at Colline Hotel in Mukono.
Bobi Wine is one of the politicians opposed to the proposal to amend Article 102 (b) of the Constitution to lift the presidential age limit.
Mr Kyagulanyi said the police move is infringing on his rights as a Ugandan adding that he is would contest the order.
Fred Nyanzi Sentamu, Bobi Wine’s brother and political assistant said it is frustrating that someone can be stopped from doing what earns him a living.
“Bobi Wine has accumulated all the wealth he has through music. It is therefore devastating to hear that police have come out to ban his music shows. I think police would have called him and interrogated him and agreed on the best way forward,” Mr Nyanzi said.
