‘I Don’t Have the Power to Free Bobi Wine’: President Museveni tells Ugandans

Uganda’s president, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has responded to the rising demands by politicians, activists and youth urging his government to release the detained legislator, Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine.

‘‘Once somebody is arrested, charged and remanded, it is only two authorities who can release such people in any way: the Courts or the DPP withdrawing charges if the evidence is not enough,’‘ Museveni said.

He urged all who are agitating for the release of the 36 year old legislator to ‘wait for the courts and see what they decide’.

Bobi Wine, who was arrested last week and charged with illegal possession of weapons, is due to appear before a court martial on Thursday.

As politicians and his supporters maintain that the charges are politically motivated, several demonstrations and protest actions have been organised demanding for his release.

Petitions have been signed online by national and international musicians, while several actiovists in Kenya, South Africa and other countries have demonstrated and petitioned government to release Bobi Wine.
