Bobi Wine moved to VIP detention facility
Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine is not an ordinary prisoner at Makindye Military Police Barracks. He has been moved from an ordinary detention facility to a house that a group of MPs that visited him on Sunday described as “fairly good.”
MPs Peter Ogwang (Usuk), Arinaitwe Rwakajara (Workers), Anita Among (Bukedea Woman) Doreen Amule (Amolatar Woman) and Ibrahim Kasozi (Makindye East) visited their incarcerated colleague at Makindye on assignment by the Parliamentary Commission.
Ogwang and Rwakajara are members of the Parliamentary Commission.
“We went there to confirm what we see on social media, to ascertain whether his condition is really bad,” Ogwang said.
According to the MPs, Bobi Wine was found having an evening meal of Matooke and meat.
He was reportedly happy to see them and invited them to have a share of his meal before narrating to them his ordeal.
“He said that he has a problem with his kidney and also still feels pain in his left hip but he is out of danger,” Ogwang said.
The group spent about two hours with the musician cum politician during which time he spoke on phone with the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga who is currently out of the country.
“The Parliamentary Commission is engaging the UPDF leadership to allow him access better and specialised treatment outside that facility or even out of the country,” Ogwang said.
They also asked UPDF to allow his children to visit him as well as his colleague MPs.
Bobi Wine, according to the MPs, was happy about the professionalism of the UPDF doctors attending to him.
