National Unity Platform (NUP) Presidential flagbearer in the upcoming 2021 General Election Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has been brutally arrested by the Uganda Police shortly after being nominated by the Electoral Commission.
Bobi Wine’s car was on Tuesday surrounded by armed security officers outside the Kyambogo University nomination centre, his car window screens smashed and forced out.
He was then whisked away in a black minivan to a yet to be identified location amid protests from his colleagues led by his wife Barbie Itungo and NUP spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi, that we understand was also later arrested.
In his speech after nomination, Bobi Winr told the press that as a presidential candidate, he was representing the poor and vulnerable Ugandans who are being stepped on by a few people in power.
“What we have observed today is a new beginning which is going to see the end of dictatorship that has crippled our country. I want to tell Mr Museveni that since you have failed to control your greed for power, our generation is here to save you from yourself,” Bobi Wine said.
