Bobi Wine’s Independence Day concert Cancelled

Police in Uganda have cancelled a concert that was to be held in the capital Kampala by Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.

Inspector General of Police Martin Okoth Ochola in his letter dated October 2, but released on Tuesday to Kampala Metropolitan Police, said Bobi Wine did not consider plans for medical care, traffic and crowd control and security.

“This serves to inform you that the notice to the Inspector General of Police has remarkable deficiencies, which do not guarantee lawfulness, safety, security for the public and organisers,” the letter says.


Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman Patrick Onyango said officers will be unable to provide adequate security as they will be at the Independence Day celebrations in Sironko and other authorised venues.

Bobi Wine, a musician turned politician, had scheduled a music show ‘Osobola’ for October 9, which coincides with Independence Day.
