Bobi Wine to be court martialed, gov’t tells Parliament

Government has told Parliament that Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine will be paraded before the Military court martial in Gulu on Thursday.

Reading from a statement that had been sent to him, 1st deputy Prime Minister Gen Moses Ali told Parliament that the musician cum politician was found with guns.

“Upon arrest, he was airlifted to Gulu Military Hospital for medical attention but since he was found with a gun, he will be appear before the court martial in Gulu tomorrow (Thursday),” Moses Ali said.

He said the other MPs, Paul Mwiru (Jinja Municipality East), Gerald Karuhanga (Ntungamo Municipality) and former MPs Michael Mabikke and Kassiano Wadri will be arraigned before the Chief Magistrate’s court in Arua.

Ali’s statement had no mention of Francis Zaake, the Mityana Municipality MP whose images circulated on social media showing him laying in hospital with wounds all over his body.

The government statement claimed that none of the people who were arrested in Arua on Monday had been tortured.
Several MPs questioned the credibility of the government statement that they said was dotted with too many flaws.

Amuru Woman MP Lucy Akello gave first hand account of what she had witnessed at Gulu Police Station where most of the suspects are detained.

Parliament constituted a team of 5 MPs, Doreen Amule (Amolatar Woman), Medard Lubega Sseggona (Busiro East), Andrew Aja Baryayanga (Kabale Municipality), Allan Ssewanyana (Makindye West) and Jova Kamateeka (Mitooma Woman) to travel to Gulu to see the MPs.
